  • Is it really safe to fly anyone out of Wuhan back to the UK given the severity of the Corona virus?

  • So, Jennifer, would you rather that we didn't there?

  • We left in there.

  • Yeah, I think I would.

  • I think they should be quarantined there.

  • I don't think given it's like a plague.

  • Seems I don't know the severity of the mortality rate and doesn't kill everybody who's affected.

  • I don't know.

  • I think they should stay that way.

  • But it's not killing everyone affected?

  • No, because it's thousands of people have been infected and over 100 people have have died, but it certainly hasn't.

  • Others would be looking about 7000 people dead.

  • And that would Well, you can't even imagine that Jeff leaving there.

  • It's quite really hoping you come from in this.

  • Yeah.

  • Is one of these things that kind of these news stories that takes over.

  • So I'm gonna do the thing that you wanna watching questions.

  • I'm often think you don't know what you're talking about, mate.

  • Let someone else ever go so it could be really brief and say that I get for you.

  • And so I have said that in my time.

  • Theo, Theo want to the politicians?

  • I just say one good thing, I think, is that you know, where is an issue where China has historically sometimes being a big garden didn't disrespect their sort of being quite open.

  • I think that's constructive, but I'll let the experts take over.

  • Okay, there's a woman you're looking quite exercised about your pink scarf on.

  • I can't quite understand what's going on because, first of all, we're told that there's going to be self isolation.

  • Secondly, we're told that this quarantine, yes, it's gonna be a hospital or if anyone in the world they're gonna come back by plane together, going on military building, to which they're going to be together until there's a symptom appears on dhe so and also what's gonna happen in the aeroplane with the air conditioning with the 200 people come back together?

  • I'm just a bit concerned about these people coming back.

  • One case in case if there's one infected first on the plane and will infect everybody, infect the whole plane.

  • Andi, also apparently, since January there's 202,500 that actually come back from Japan from China who?

  • When?

  • Andi, Um, only a few have been trackable.

  • So where are these people?

  • And are the public at risk?

  • I don't know.

  • What?

  • We haven't had an outbreak yet.

  • Everybody wears a smallish that was on television staying it.

  • And it was also in the papers about the amount bright in the newspapers in the Guardian and the telegraph.

  • Um, Sasha, should we be flying people back at I mean, we've seen lots of people are on the news desperate to come home early.

  • So on on that, I'm not qualified.

  • Thio answer Jennifer's question.

  • What I did find out actually last week, which is a fact.

  • An avenue is Wuhan is actually twinned with Manchester, Uh, which is a fact for the, um, I think the government did a really, really poor job, actually, when when the news first broke.

  • So there's nine million people on lock down.

  • Let's give you an idea.

  • Greater Manchester 2.8 million Scotland's five million.

  • So that puts everything into perspective on their advice was to get out of the area when it's under lock down and there's no public transport and you can't drive and you got people that we're watching on the news, panicking for the live skyping interviews over how you're supposed to get out.

  • I mean, I've seen today.

  • Now there is a plane there and look into bringing.

  • We're coming.

  • People being feeling back tonight, I won't die to the world.

  • But I just think it was too little, too late.

  • To be honest, we should have followed examples of other countries.

  • So we should certainly find about maybe more quickly.

  • Yes, the one with the glasses.

  • I'm a GP locally on DDE with regards to the Corona virus.

  • I think the government have done a good job.

  • I've got a brilliant amount of information from them very, very quickly.

  • What I think the problem is, is the press.

  • I think that's scaremongering.

  • I don't think they give the correct information, Theo.

  • Well, yes, hopefully.

  • Fergus, my colleague folks, I'm doing a reasonable job.

  • What about what the lady was saying?

  • They're about everyone coming back on the plane and will it will everyone will.

  • What will they end up infecting each other?

  • I mean, is it an incredibly contagious form of a flu virus essentially on DDE?

  • What nobody ever talks about is the military staff on the medical stuff.

  • They are likely to be carriers, and you're going to infect people.

  • But where are they going?

  • Right.

  • Is it almost as many questions?

  • We've got answers here, Sarah.

  • Oh, you mean the 150 people flying back tonight?

  • Possibly as we speak.

  • What is the right name?

  • I mean again, I wouldn't think to be an expert.

  • I think the point about trying to do the right thing this time is absolutely right there being much more open.

  • And I think, you know, I'm not making a point about Brexit.

  • All I'm saying when we leave, we need to make sure we've got those cross governments across country working together because, actually, you know, this has no borders.

  • I think there has been criticism of the government in that they have been a bit slower to act in other countries.

  • I think the information that people have have got has bean on.

  • Maybe it's the government's fault.

  • Maybe it's it's the public health roll t get that information out.

  • But you know, our people being screened on they are people being brought back on May.

  • We've all heard interviews on the idea of people who were in Wuhan who were trying to come back who feel like they're on their own and they aren't getting the help they need.

  • Do you think it's the right thing to bring them back?

  • I think if we can, I think the quarantine is that is what we do.

  • And that's a sensible approach.

  • I would say that, you know well, we do public health really well in this country.

  • But there has bean a huge cut to the budgets on our diplomatic service is is a 20 year low in terms of funding.

  • So the embassy in, you know, in China they'll be struggling with our public health approach.

  • Will be, will be struggling because because we don't have the resources that we once had.

  • But I think as a country we tend to be quite good managing these kind of crises and way we'll need to make sure we're not trying to scare monger.

  • But a lot of flights now have been counseled coming in and out of the whole of China.

  • There's a lot of people in the whole of China that might need to come back, and if this escalates quickly, we need to know what is the government plan, right?

  • And it's just been declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization tonight, in a minute of thinking from the National Farmers Union perspective, I'm not entirely sure what your your your your view in this world, but Jennifer's point where she you don't feel it is a good idea to fly people back.

  • Despite the pleading that we've been hearing of over the airways of the last few days, Jennifer, I am see sympathizer that nothing of you or I were out there.

  • We probably pretty desperate to come to come back.

  • You know, it's a really complex virus.

  • It's a zoo, no, sit second, jump from animals to human, and it just shows how different effectively China is to hear.

  • So this was a wet market in Wuhan, where they bring in live animals.

  • They have snakes, marmots, bats, they very much the feeling is this jumped from a bat to a domestic animal on that was had passed on to human.

  • So I think there there are big lessons actually to be learned in how these things are spread.

  • How these you know, sis far suspect How they mutate on.

  • It's a really lesson, I guess, in the whole standards piece.

  • China had that horrendous outbreak whereby they had contaminated baby milk and they put 56 hours and babies into hospital.

  • And so we've got, I think, learn from what has happened.

  • And I'm sure the Chinese, the Chinese seem to have reacted really, really quickly to all of this.

  • But they will have big, big lessons to learn on the back of this that if you have live animals, wild animals coming into markets, whether it's food being sold, this is how these things conjunction is enormously dangerous.

  • And now we have a global situation on the back of it on the back, potentially of one bat and then this 100.

  • Yes, this links into exactly what you were saying.

  • How can the U.

  • K.

  • In the international community pressurized China into closing down these wet markets that dealing endangered species and create the united viruses which jumped species?

  • How can we actually pressurize him too close and down and stopping out again?

  • This one corona sauce and avian flu?

  • Absolutely.

  • And the woman here in front of the glasses just after the people feeling quarantine.

  • There's two weeks.

  • What happens if he called the virus world?

  • Were there within the two weeks are going to be monitored after the being importante James, I'm sure you've been briefed up to the gills on this subject since that the flight where is going out tonight or has already left with these people.

  • So what is gonna happen?

  • So 150 people coming back 50 from other EU countries, they're going to this place in the will where they're going to stay for two weeks.

  • And then what?

  • Well, firstly, the simple answer to your question Jennifer is yes, it is absolutely right.

  • We bring these people and we have a responsibility, and we are making good on that responsibility.

  • We're lucky in the UK that we have some genuine world class experts in disease management.

  • Um ah, nde uh, when?

  • When these things happen.

  • The people involved in this have done exercises.

  • They practice their procedures, they've practiced the GP.

  • Dr.

  • I didn't catch your name.

  • Would you apologize?

  • Eyes right.

  • We disseminate information to medical practitioners so they know what to expect.

  • They know the parameters, Um on the on the the isolation that we're putting people into will be designed specifically to make sure that before people are allowed back into wider community, they are no longer a a medical risk.

  • These things are done incredibly professionally, and as you say we should as a country, very, very proud that we have got some very experienced practitioners in this we've exercised flew way had that fantastic response.

  • My mother's from Syria.

  • We have that fantastic response to Ebola in West Africa that I think we can be incredibly proud off.

  • This is incredibly scary.

  • I completely understand that and it's legitimate that people are worried.

  • But we are global experts at dealing with this kind of thing on the fact that Chinese have been very open, that they've communicated with the international community.

  • They're sharing information I think is to their credit and has helped global medical community deal with what is a very, very concerning sexual.

  • So what can we all expect to happen now in that it's now a universe now in every region in China has now been declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization, which brings with it certain procedures or may not follow, such as for example, stopping all flights to China.

  • I mean, it's extraordinary that they may sound.

  • What can we expect to follow now?

  • I'm not gonna speculate.

  • I don't I think we all agree on the panel.

  • I don't pretend to know enough about the procedure.

  • Doesn't take government policy.

  • Well, not respecting me.

  • Because this is where this is one of these areas where we do have experts, medical experts who are experienced their practiced.

  • They have a baby training exercises around this kind of thing.

  • On we will.

  • We will rely on those experts to use the experience that they they got to guide government policy on our reaction.
