It's really not that simple. So far so his morning in my 1.5 hours on site I've had to ask 4 different people to move away from me, 2 of which were site management. I've also seen as ee labourer pick up a mug from the canteen cupboard, fill it with water and drink it, then place the cup back with the rest without washing it up. Also the smoking area is about 2 m square and upto 5 blokes have been in there at any one time. Building sites are breeding grounds for illness and should be shut along with factories where distancing can't be maintained, numbers of people inside supermarkets will be limited and markers placed to keep people separate.
All the talk of building sites having the young on them is not true either, my company alone out of 30 blokes I can think of 5 that are over 60 and another 5 that are over 50. Sites have plenty of men 50+ on them,. The one I'm on at the minute at a guess there are 50 of us, I'd say 25% are mid 50s or older, and maybe 5 are 30s or younger

I expect that rather than some grand plan, it's just a simple cost-benefit analysis.

Lots of site workers are young, so the chances of them ending up in intensive care is very low, they probably don't mix much with old folk (especially if their grandparents live in Eastern Europe), and being self employed, they're motivated to go into work.

However, I expect public pressure will make them close lots of building sites and offer the self employed more than 94 quid a week.

Seems like most govt policies are like this nowadays ... do something or leak plans to pet journalists, see what the reaction is, then change accordingly. That's what I call leadership!

Some interesting reading:

Is the Coronavirus as Deadly as They Say?

I don't think anyone can complain about builders still working, supermarket and hospital workers seem to be the most at risk.

They just need to put the tube back to full service so people can spread out

Everything is just a theory because there’s no blueprint for what needs to be done but as I said, I believe it’s more of a financial necessity than some infection program. Not as dangerous a theory as those who said it’s just flu and to carry on as normal though.
Any measures they put in place can’t be fairly judged because people won’t listen. They’re flooding in and out of each others flats and houses round me, 2 cars full of young lads parked up smoking weed in the car park (probably coughing on each other), joggers and local degenerates alike still spitting on the ****ing pavements!

Sounds like a conspiracy theory to me. I don't think those in power are clever enough to orchestrate such a thing with enough precision to get the outcome they want.

I don’t think it’s the most far fetched theory but is nowhere near as simple as just let the plebs get it..
As pointed out there’s investors to think of, the gargantuan bill paying said trades to down tools and how they will calculate payments.
Wouldn’t be the first time those in power have used the poorer in society as cannon fodder but I think the fact we’ll be back at it tomorrow is more financial than a means to infect the young

It doesn't seem too far fetched.

... But big building firms have donated plenty to the Tories, too.

Perhaps I'm not making my point very well.
Does anyone agree with the theory put forward in post #583

I think it caught the Italians out. It got into the care and health care system before they knew it. We're not following their model they've had to be reactive.

The Italian model was close the schools as soon as they could see what was coming and lock down everything soon after. All out of the blue. Deaths are high despite these measures, not because of.

Boris's 'plan' seems to be do nothing for ages, then realise his core voters will die, before putting in place ill defined rules, adopting Corbyn-like help for employees while doing bugger all for the self employed.

Plenty of them about in all industries, the amount of ppe in use on small jobs in the last couple of weeks is a surprise, it's normally in the vans under that copy of the daily sport from 2012
