I remember someone on here said we should charge China reparations for the Covid 19 virus.
Now we have developed a mutant strain that is disrupting the whole of Europe (at least). Does that mean we owe those guys money now? Using the same logic

No. China still pays via the UK and we act as middleman and take a cut.

No because the strain came from Denmark.

I stand corrected it seems the danish case originated in the uk

Any links to that? So far I've seen Australia has two UK travellers with it, Italy has one UK traveller and Netherlands one unidentified origin.
That was the original story as it was reallly first highlighted in denmark ( hence all the fuss over re England game being moved etc) but seems that this case started in uk.

That was due to the travel ban because of the mink strain. Link

Since I wrote above, Denmark has identified 8 cases but no info on their source.

No because that again would be down to China, we would t have the mutated strain if they hadn’t shared the original strain with us.

You mean China that continually lied and deceived the world and their own people, purposefully misled WHO and knowingly under reported infection and death figures?

Nah, actually I'll retract that. Still ludicrous to consider the thought of reparations from China though.
