Am I the only one who has their head in their hands with this latest gem from the government. Most of our over 70s rely on some sort of support from their families, carers or just regular medical appointments. If the carers that go in to these old people aren't in isolation there really is no point even trying this measure. We are wasting valuable time. The WHO is telling us to quarantine now.
