Coach drivers left unprotected while everyone else is wearing protective clothing and where even the coaches will receive a thorough clean, yet the drivers were left at risk and now return home to their families and if no one in authority sees nothing wrong with that, then there is something seriously wrong here and we are all doomed.
Six coach drivers who were ferrying 83 passengers from Wuhan, China, after their plane landed in Brize Norton in Oxfordshire will be given 10 days off work.
The passengers were taken to an accommodation block at Arrowe Park Hospital in Wirral.
The coaches used in the transfer from the airport will be given a special deep clean.
Medics wearing hazmat suits were sat in the front seats but the coach drivers appeared to have little or no protection gear and were seen in their normal clothes, with no protection at all, AND THIS IS HOW THE UK HANDLES A MAJOR HEALTH RISK ?
The patients themselves will be quarantined for 14 days and monitored and treated if any symptoms develop.
The drivers had agreed to take the job, a company spokesman said, and will be given paid leave to “remain at home for the next 10 days”..
In photos of the convoy medics wearing hazmat suits were spotted on board the vehicles.

But at least two of the drivers were not wearing any kind of protection gear at all.
Two cases of the new coronavirus have been confirmed in a family in the UK.
It comes on the heels of the World Health Organisation declaring an international public health emergency as cases continue to spread.
So the WHO decalres an international health crisis and where everyone is wearing masks and protective clothing - except the coach drivers who now will spend time at home with their families.
This is the most dumb, the most stupid and the most illogical thing I think I have ever heard.
Here was have the potential of a pandemic and where people are covered from head to toe in protective clothing - EXCEPT THE BUS DRIVERS - who now go home to their families and their lives and there is the possibility to pass this massively into the general population because a bus drives was not offered protective clothing.
What the hell is the UK up to ?
Are they deliberately trying to start a pandemic.
Has the W.H.O. no idea at all what it is doing ?
The NHS is now working to track any contacts the patients had to prevent further spread.
I CAN SAUGGEST A COUPLE OF BUS DRIVERS FOR A START.
I am outraged at the stupidity, the danger, the risk that the people of the UK have been put in by this absolutely brain damagine lack of thought, of common fucking sense - and it just staggers my consciousness that such stupidity happens. It's on the news, it's on the telly, and no one seems to consider this a deadly thing to have done.
WTF ARE THEY UP TO ? I TRULY DESPAIR.
Now I am no expert. I am not a doctor or anything, BUT FOR GOD SAKE - IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT THESE DRIVERS AND EVERYONE INVOLVED NEEDS PROTECTION.
To then allow unprotected people home to spread anything they 'might ' have to the general population is MASS MURDER.

John. I am a bus driver. Saw on the news and your editorial on your blog about the coach drivers ferrying potential Corona Virus 'victims' from the air port to the quaranteened hospital, and where the bus will be deep cleaned but the drivers left unprotected. I despair John, I truly do. You are right to be shocked and alarmed and I think we all should. This was thousands of miles away and now they have brought it onto our shores with very little common sense at all. If this does break out and if it comes from the coach drivers and if this turns ugly, I hope they track down the dummies who let this happen and shame them publicly. I actually cannot believe the stupidity involved here. I truly cannot.
John. I saw on the news the drivers unprotected - as you mention on your Blog and was horrified. I actually read it twice and did some internet searching and saw more on this. Do these people in authority want a pandemic ? Are the drug companies in charge here - wanting a pandemic so they can earn billions in coming up with an antidote - a cure ? Who is in charge here as clearly incompetance seems to rule.
