The histories are already being written - the complexities of
Covid-19, the sparse knowledge in the early days, the balance that
leaders take between life and money, and the extent to which policies
are based on evidence, scientific experience, or political prejudices
have all shaped different government responses.

The correct decisions are not everything however - there was a need
for prompt action by a large number of people, to cooperate for the
greater good. Calling on the heart as well as the dead by asking for
kindness and cooperation has undoubtedly had an effect; how much we
cannot know, and also looking for evidence based decisions also
appears to have been critical to success.

FFS Rich you mistyping is a given. However as usual it was just CoL rhetoric rather than anything that may have been effective!
