For quicker manufacture of NHS equipment, and without going into details of HOW they do it, we need specialised jobbing companies that can manufacture parts as they have the expensive CNC controlled machines that can be quickly churn out parts at a high rate of knots, then companies that can assemble and test equipment ready use. These companies are used to quick pickups and delivery. Dyson and JCB will no doubt use these types of companies and would be well versed in organising just in time or similar systems to co-ordinate deliveries.
Many smaller companies used this method to avoid the cost of buying expensive machinery which are geared for batch production.
It's a system I used to minimise total cost and cash flow.
I'm presenting this appalling piece of news as an aid to keep us all safe.
|We may be here to profit from the company's success but at the end of the day we want to stay safe and healthy and get rid of this virus, which we hope this company will assist in.
Part of a report from CNN-
Picked out of a CNN report-
(CNN) A Phoenix-area man is dead and his wife is under critical care after the two took chloroquine phosphate in an apparent attempt to self-medicate for the novel coronavirus, according to hospital system Banner Health.
It does not appear they took the pharmaceutical version of the drug, but rather "an additive commonly used at aquariums to clean fish tanks," Banner Health said in a statement.
Though Banner did not provide additional details, NBC News spoke to the wife, who said they learned of chloroquine's connection to coronavirus during a President Donald Trump news conference, which "was on a lot actually." They took it because they "were afraid of getting sick," she said.
"I had (the substance) in the house because I used to have koi fish," she told the network. "I saw it sitting on the back shelf and thought, 'Hey, isn't that the stuff they're talking about on TV?'"
Trump has touted chloroquine as a possible treatment for Covid-19. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, but the FDA has not approved it to treat the coronavirus.
Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine: what to know about the potential coronavirus drugs
Banner Health experts emphasized that the medication -- as well as other "inappropriate medications and household products" -- "should not be ingested to treat or prevent this virus."
"Given the uncertainty around Covid-19, we understand that people are trying to find new ways to prevent or treat this virus," Dr. Daniel Brooks, medical director of the Banner Poison and Drug Information Center, said in the statement. "But self-medicating is not the way to do so."
Seven years ago, the publication, Advanced Aquarist, heralded three forms of chloroquine as "a 'new' drug for treating fish diseases" and detailed its effectiveness in fighting off certain parasites in saltwater aquariums.
Banner Health, which is based in Arizona, didn't give any details on how the couple, both in their 60s, acquired the chloroquine or which Banner hospital treated them.
"Within thirty minutes of ingestion, the couple experienced immediate effects requiring admittance to a nearby Banner Health hospital," its statement said.
Trump has called chloroquine and the closely related hydroxychloroquine potentially important in the fight against coronavirus.
Dangerous in its extreme.

I think that some of the sells recently posted are buys. MMs still continue to play trcks aeound the mid price.
Stirrings of more controls by Lon Stk Exch hopefully to clamp down on this sort of thing.
GDR looking better now.
I don't really understand how much weight the WHO carry throughout the world but from what I see on their daily statements it could be a lot stronger. There are 'leaders' throught out the world who need to be brought to heel in this current crisis.
I've just had an email from a ex Brit cousin in the US who expressed his opinions on how he sees it from an accountants point of view.
He says 'it seems to me that Boris has been a bit lax in making sure people stay away from each other and I really worry that what has and is still happening in Italy is going to replicate in Britain, and in the States. The States are in particular trouble with the moron who calls the shots here listens only to the stock market and Fox News, the most horrendous poor excuse for a news network that you have ever seen – although I am reminded that you are in England, and some of your newspapers are no better. But the thing is that he is sooo reluctant to issue an order for people to stay home because it would mean more stock losses. He is trying to push legislation through that would (supposedly) help the country as the effects of home isolation takes hold, but traditionally if there’s handouts they should benefit him, not poor slobs who have lost their jobs – it’s their own bloody fault, or China’s but not the Prez!
Lets take heed also what's going on elsewhere. Everything is not so white as it seems.
Y'all take care, ya hear.

In these exceptional times Iwould expect a virtual meeting to be acceptable and red tape cut to get things done quickly. Maybe the government and civil service are hidebound with red tape which is why things aren't being carried out at urgent speed. They're ticking all the boxes in regulated order and aren't being proactive, ticking all the boxes in one go, throwing the papers away and doing it. They're far better at talking it all to death. This situation is far more urgent than instantaneous go.
Oh ,wonder of wonders, everybody today is an amateur virologist. Give it up and stick to what you know.
I hope your not the same people ignoring advice to stay indoors and away from everybody. THE MOST IMPORTANT ADVICE.
We used to be British and behaved but now we seem to be total moronic idiots.
look where the panic has dropped the SP down to.
Danawinner, I see that you exaggerate or jest. The current death toll from Covid-19 is around 200 and even if all were buried in one cemetery the area would only add up to about a quarter of an acre, but most people would go through the crematorium.
As there are always about 2000/2500 deaths a day in the UK, local authorities would be in a permanent beserk state of disorganisation if your statement had any semblance of truth.
My local MAB restaurant is now providing take away meals. It uses the food in their system, brings money in and safeguards at least some essential jobs in the business.
Nobody treats death lightly so don't jest about it. Or are you a hooray henry whose life has been disrupted.
I suggest you isolate yourself, eat and drink less so you don't get diabetes and survive over this difficult time to help other peopleand hope you, and lots of other people, will come through it all unscathed.
Then in a year you can write in to say you have survived.
'Some of us are a bit jumpy ATM but a talk show host said that someone in high places (heresay) stated that there is no shortage of PPE (personal protective equipment) for the NHS. THis is contrary to what many are experiencing in the field of medecine.'
A questioner in the House of Commons said that host did not have any medical or scientific knowledge, was telling untruths and asked what could be done about it. Rees-Mogg skilfully replied that if someone wanted to stick his neck out and appear a fool that was his fault. Very neatly and accurately said.
Good old Moggy!!!
Two US destroyers hit really big ships and 17 sailors die, two 737max down, hundreds die.
Their beer is terrible and I caught a potentially deadly virus from it.
And the president talks to bolsonaro with covid-19?
Having lived and worked in US the list could go on.
And they want to sell us USA health products, COUGH,COUGH,COUGH.
The list continues
