    We knew at some point one would hit us hard, we didn't and still don't when the next one will happen. Might be next week, might be 50 years time.
    Previous US administration's slowly reduced funding for pandemic preparation, until it became impotent to act.
    The pandemic hit and the US like most other countries was woefully unprepared. Although they new it was going to happen.

    Biden is stating that preparation for the next pandemic must put in place and started now. We don't when the next one will arrive, we do know from history it will, the last two years are a painful reminder we are not infallible.

    Unfortunately you are gullible enough to fall for a snipped video, with no context, provided by dubious outlets, that you won't do the most basic of due diligence on.
    It's going to be a long life of constant anxiety unless you stay away from twitter and dubious news sources.
    Absolutely this ^^.



    Due diligence is *key* here - my first thought was "okay, what was the rest of Biden's speech?". Instead, Phil falls -once again - for somewhat right-wing "post-truth" nonsense, soundbites without context.

    The UK also ran a simulation for pandemic preparedness in 2016, called Exercise Cygnus.

    I don't know why people even waste their time and MH looking at a lot of such exaggerated crap that Phil seems to have a habit of seeking out.

    I know I've kind of been guilty of such things in the past myself but over more recent years, especially since we've become far more acutely aware of fake/exaggerated news stories (in particular those circulating online by silly people with agendas), I've learned far more about whatever 'reputable'/'trustworthy' sites/sources more worthy of taking more seriously and whatever 'dubious' sites/sources to spot a country mile off and inadvertently avoid like the plague.

    Re: Monkeypox vs Covid

    Still lots of uncertainty with travel. Talk of more restrictions in Spain. I go a holiday abroad a day visit in 4 weeks I’m still not certain I can do this as so much changes even two years later? Yet Australia has opened up now so some countries see the end of this. I have a holiday in October but I’m unsure about wasting it’s of money as they could easily bring these covid rules back? This year has seen lots eased but there’s still lots of restrictions around Europe right now. What will 2023 be like? Everything I book now needs flexibility to rearrange or refund

    Monkeypox now seems to have vanished from the national news headlines.

    Also the Polio scare in London a few weeks back and of course the Hepatitis epidemic back in the spring both now seem to be water under the bridge.

    Just because some other countries might be bringing back certain Covid restrictions, doesn't automatically mean that the UK will be doing the same.

    Re: Monkeypox vs Covid

    Monkeypox now a global emerging. Nobody is falling for these repeated pandemics anymore. No doubt they will try PCR tests I am sure they do that for Monkeypox too and 3 week isolations but we have had enough. 5 deaths worldwide from it yet more panic. Any thoughts?
