  2. Fuck. That’s the youngest I’ve heard of yet.

  3. I don’t want to give Daily Mail clicks – did the 18 year old have underlying health conditions?

  4. When will he stop threatening and take serious measures? When they reach 50k cases and a few thousand fatalities?

  5. Shut factories too! cooped up like chickens

  6. shut the world down already. unless you want this to be a population control event… we have history, libraries, and the internet; we know how pandemics go

  7. Do it anyway! This is people we’re talking about.

  8. Didn’t this guy have testicular cancer and bronchitis or something?

  9. ‘We can confirm that sadly a patient who was being treated for significant underlying health issues has passed away at University Hospital, Coventry.’

    Can someone clarify this for me? Does this mean the kid already had health issues that were effected by corona? Or is this saying the health issues caused by corona caused his death?

  10. Is this a blame deflecting thing? He can now say that it’s the public’s fault for not flattening the curve rather than the fact no limitations were put in place by the UK government?

  11. How sad is that place when Boris is the smart one.

  12. Thought this motha fucka was going out to pubs during this outbreak

  13. Threatening to? Just do it already.

  14. Threatening….he should have done this already.

  15. Pull a LaBouf and just do it.

  16. Stupid country why just don’t shut down?

  17. How will Boris know if people are not keeping their distance in parks? I went to a park yesterday, and although there were a few people there we all kept our distance from each other. I didn’t see anyone taking notes.

  18. Meaningless statistics.

  19. One thing to note here, is the article states he had underlaying issues. He may have been taking some sort of immuno-supressing drugs which let the virus do him in alot easier.

  20. Urm… Regardless of how effficient people are at social distancing, he should have called for all parks to be closed much earlier.

  21. He had underlying conditions. Fuck off daily fail

  22. China is responsible for this calamity.

    They must pay.

  23. Hes such a pussy. Hes too scared that people won’t vote for him if he takes drastic measures, but there will be no one TO vote if we all die of this fucking pandemic. Grow some balls, Boris.

  24. guys, please stay calm, it’s like it’s been said loads of times before, you will not die if you are young and healthy, it’s only if you have an underlying serious condition that then you have a CHANCE of passing but even then the chances are very low.
