Thanks Mark and everyone,

Could we choose one and focus on it? 

I’d go for number eight!

I think speed is one of the crucial things - do we do enough to emphasize that?

Does the public fully understand the importance of spreading infection and the time issue?

Can infection/spreading infection be graded - what are the most dangerous infections?

What are the age differences to consider?

Etc., etc.

Rob Bell, M.D.
