 The Red List

The Red List .. profit before lives yet gain .. from Aunty :-



Bangladesh, which had the South Africa but not the Brazil variant, and Pakistan, which had neither, were added to the red list on 9 April.
But India, which had both, was not added for another two weeks.

We asked the government why it wasn`t added before but have not yet had a response.

"Nobody knows the full criteria - but there may be a political element because the UK wants a trade deal with India," Dr Simon Clarke, associate professor in cellular microbiology, at the University of Reading, said.

"It`s not always a data-driven decision," he added, giving the example of Somalia, which is on the red list but has one of the lowest official rates of infection and deaths in the world.

Is this coming back to haunt us ? ... a trade deal more important than lives ?

I attended a presentation online given by a doctor in India a couple of weeks ago concerning the crisis in his part of the country.

He explained that the government had thought the situation was under control, then they allowed Hindu mass public bathing in sacred rivers - followed by large election gatherings and voting assemblies.......social distancing and face mask precautions largely ignored.

I believe at that point, before things went "nuclear" the UK government did not realise the oncoming crisis there - not a defence, just an observation as to why India missed the Red status then.
