Comrade Ranjeet Brar (@Rango1917), leading British communist and NHS surgeon, talks to George Galloway on his Mother of All Talk Shows (MoATS) about the coronavirus and the speed at which it is spreading across the world.
Dr Ranjeet again outlines how effective China has been at getting the outbreak under control. He emphasises that a significant reason for that is the sheer extent of testing China has undertaken.
While China has been able to test 1.8 million people a week, countries in Europe have come nowhere near those figures, with Britain only testing 5,000 a day. Dr Ranjeet deals with the Malthusian myth of overpopulation and outlines what ‘herd immunity’ is and why it is not applicable to this current outbreak.
