The strategy in Scotland is to eradicate - as much as is possible - the virus and to try and keep it under control as much as possible. That way they see an overall quicker "return to normal" with a lot less deaths.

At yesterday's briefing she was asked what was the difference between her approach and the PM's approach and said that she didn't know what it was as he hadn't articulated it to her - or any of the other devolved administrations - but it seemed to be that he wanted to suppress it to the point where the health service didn't get overwhelmed, which seems dangerous and risky to me.

No COBRA meetings for weeks. No consultation with, nor prior warning to, the devolved governments about the quarantine proposals, despite it directly impacting them. Four nations meetings continue with ministers but they are along the lines of "this is what we've done" rather than discussing and agreeing a common way forwards.

Sounds like the whole thing has broken down.
