    EU tends to have statistics available. I didn't look too much into this, but here is some numbers: https://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/statistics-explained/index.php?title=Healthcare_resource_statistics_-_beds

    Like pointing out lies, contradictions and lack of facts?

    You would like to have more and better information to form an opinion, not even policy or response to crisis, opinion. Yet your leaders are denying more and better information from their officials. I too do have engineering background and I would describe that process as shit in, shit out. And my army background says that shit will flow down.

    I didn't try to be bitter (although I might be as if I had waited few weeks £->€ would made my gear shopping almost 10% cheaper). Bitterness could also stem from the fact that people are going nuts hoarding stuff and on the other hand not following the recommendations and thus triggering the governments to enact full curfews. Our elderly people are supposed to be in quarantine like conditions, but they don't seem to like that and same with kids who are now home schooled... Anyway, I still predict that some things that could be blamed on Brexit will be blamed on Covid.

    Closing of pubs can't be blamed on Brexit, but many Brexit things can now be blamed on Covid-19.

    What is your point? Should the courts drop cases now that there is corona virus epidemic? Delay the decisions? Decide otherwise? edit. it seems that European courts are shutting down, but Brits keep on marching: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-16/virus-closes-european-courts-but-can-t-stop-u-k-tradition is that the right or wrong way?

    Yup, open borders are beneficial to EU. Yes there are times, like this one or the refugee crisis one, when borders get closed as it is then more beneficial to close them. Could you elaborate why this has been proven folly now or how this is backtracking?

    My idiocy? I only observed that EU countries can and do close their borders. And UK could have done so when in EU. But it still haven't done so. It seems that UK just wants to do opposite what rest of Europe does, even if it was batshit bonkers.

    Irony you say? That UK does Brexit to get control of its borders back, yet EU countries have no problems with borders when need arises?

    So called "wicking" polyester shirts??

    I'm not fond of the idea of machine drying wool. Unless you bought waay too large stuff.

    Closing schools when the impact starts is like wearing condom when the baby bump shows.

    That sounds logical. If only the leaders would say so instead of taking it to chin...
