pandemic control - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
In the pandemic the British couldn't let even one migrant boat through, because if the pandemic got worse, or if a new disease arose, they had to be able to have air tight border control. Additionally, they had a joint responsibility with France to ensure that people weren't trying to cross the channel in boats ill equipped to deal with a storm. And so it became their policy to share the costs of housing, medicine, food and education for the migrants in the French port towns. In this matter Britain and France became partners. It was also noted that as Britain and France are the nuclear powers of Europe, and thus take on a defensive role toward the entire continent, it was in the interests of all that should mainland Europe be temporarily incapacitated by a new pathogen, a fully operational United Kingdom would be its best protector. Thus a strong Britain committed to the defence of Europe (and a strong ally of the United States) was essential. The road toward global peace was never going to be won in a day and until that end was achieved, foreign policy and the balance of power needed due consideration.
To help control the pandemic we redesigned the airflow in buildings, we redesigned private and public outdoor spaces. For the airflow we brought in outside air to vents in the floor and matched them with fans in the ceiling to draw the air up and out, back outside. We know that outside air is cleaner, thus this system helps to reduce infection and helps to speed up recovery. Additionally, for seating arrangements, personal and groups, they were enclosed in a sort of petal arrangement, curling as they reached the extractor fans, a sort of mimic of the way air wants to travel in a cyclone. This helped to reduce the impact of airborne transmission too. Plus, the arrangement was scalable, from the micro to the macro. It looked pretty too, as if some wonderful tropical plants had burst through the flooring.
Additionally, at the level of windows, the upper wall could be replaced by a breathable material, one that lets in both light and allows for a modest exchange of air. When this is combined with truly environmentally friendly energy supply, we have a means to help control the pandemic whilst regaining a sense of society and community.
