If ever there was a clear and present danger, Coronavirus is it. Microbiologists say it can survive nine days on inanimate surfaces. It is a killer which spreads more rapidly and more easily than any other known virus. The long-term effects are not known but experts are worried. There is no vaccine. 

The Chinese authorities are taking it so seriously that they closed down the region from where it is believed to have come, ordered citizens to stay indoors and had workers in exposure suits spray the steps of buildings.

Yet most countries' governments are playing down public concerns and treating people like fools with patronising public health campaigns reminiscent of "Duck and Cover Your Head". Public health PRs are spreading a deadly complacency.

Ireland is in a unique position to control the virus: we are an island with a small population of (relatively) literate people. But we have idiots in charge, who have refused to close our borders. 

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and his sidekicks Simple Simon and Comical Ali of the HSE are telling us to listen to them only. They issue vague reports identifying vast area of the Country "the West" etc. People are engaged in a sick Treasure Hunt on social media to find out where the virus is so we can avoid it. They told us not to think for ourselves and do what they say: wait for symptoms, ten report them to the HSE, who will take us to hospital - this puts vulnerable patients at risk! They are also refusing to ban large gatherings. 

But some people are engaging their critical thinking faculties. In Youghal, Co Cork, the group Youghal 4 All, who organise the St Patrick's Day parade, took control - and called off their parade. The organisers of parades in other towns have followed their lead.

In the absence of leadership from our Govt and health authorities, we need Youghal 4All to lead Ireland in dealing with this emergency.
