    Opening up too early would be both dangerous and a total waste of what we have already been through, we are only being asked to stay at home and this should continue until it is totally safe to ease the lock down.

    Sensible idea - nations like Germany and Austria have taken a common sense approach thus far and have made many good decisions that have protected their citizens as much as possible. We should aim to follow their good example for coming out of lockdown.

    Learning from other countries and best evidence is essential . Recognise that it is a tricky balance with other adverse impacts on health , wellbeing and economy.

    No, this would take too long and is cowardice to allow other countries to do the dirty work.
    A country like the UK should be able to make its own decisions, although both Scotland and the UK in general seem to be making a right pigs backside of this.

    Agree, ease up slowly and take measures to protect the most vulnerable communities where the virus is still spreading (ie was a couple of weeks behind rest of UK)
