If this really is a serious health crisis like you Liberals claim:

1 Withdraw the troops from Iraq, Syria and Turkey, Jordan etc.

2 Open up the Royal Families Palaces, Houses and Estates to allow key medical workers, the homeless and those in the most overcrowded urban living conditions to use for the lock down.

3 Close down the Alcohol and Tobacco industries and keep them closed until all other restrictions are limited.

4 Institute a massive clamp down on the use of medical drugs for recreational purposes, to enable a shutdown of all non essential medical production.

5 Stop the roll out of 5G, we don't need it if we are confined at home.

6 Stop all construction work that does not aid those working to combat the Xi virus. So no high speed rail projects.

Doctors, scientists and people of reason are making this claim. Liberals and Conservatives who can listen are, as well.

1. Good idea.

2. Why?

3. Medical drugs are not used for recreational purposes. When was the last time someone took anti-biotics to get a high?

4. Why? Is this linked to some conspiracy theory?

5. Yes, but it's hard to concentrate on infrastructure when everyone's at home.

We are being told that people who break the lockdown are responsible for the deaths of NHS medical staff. There has been a great fanfare about these deaths. Any production, any industry increases social contact and spreads the Xi virus. The Liberals are telling us that we that we mustn't go to the beach, we mustn't go out into nature, we mustn't go out and exercise for more than an hour, despite the fact that outside of the most over populated city areas these activities only need increase Xi Virus spread by a tiny tiny amount. Look at any any lower class workers whether on building sites in factories or supermarket workers they are not practising social distancing. The effects of ongoing industry far far outweigh, the befits of these petty restrictions.

If the Xi virus really is as bad as the Liberals say, then alcohol and tobacco production will significantly increase the spread of the virus and will kill front line and secondary medical staff. How are Liberals justifying this?

A lot of drug abuse is done under the guise of the medical industrial complex. I have no time for Conservative hypocrites either, like Elvis Presley, a degenerate drug addict that went on drug raids, celebrated by the Republican President. If we need to cut down on all non essential industry, then we need to cut down on unnecessary and often harmful legal drug abuse.

I've edited the OP to insert the following.

2 Open up the Royal Families Palaces, Houses and Estates to allow key medical workers, the homeless and those in the most overcrowded urban living conditions to use for the lock down.
