    ?Public Health & the Corona virus

    As epidemics are a general public problem, rather than a personal problem, this is going to knock hell out of arguments for privatization of the NHS. There is no meritocratic order to it. If you have a fancy hospital and others don’t, you’re still going to get it. What keeps you safe is keeping everyone safe.

    And as many people are carrying it and spreading it unawares, with no symptoms, it might be everyone else’s problem, even if you don’t think it’s your problem.
