"Of course, 20s hand-washing is very important, as it both kills germs and prevents both germs from spreading and your touching mouth, nose and eyes with unclean hands."

That's it and it was the first line of defence here (before "social distancing" was introduced) and is always good hygiene even at the best of times.

A UK high street retailer (pharmacy) is said to offer a COVID-19 antibody home-test kit - cost £69.

Free tests are also available from the National Health Service (NHS) for some. See below for details about tests -

I would be very wary of paying for anything like this, especially if you are doing your own sampling (which is easy to get wrong). The tests may be legitimate of course, but as always, seek medical advice (if you can persuade a doctor to see you!)

What, to you, looks like main reason the government is using the virus for? The old divide and conquer addage?

Apologies for I have been away from home for a long while now but is it illegal in England for the government to treat people like adults and not children. Offer suggestions rather than tell people what to do.

Huh?
How can a virus be used by a government?

I think this is a linguistic issue: the government isn't using the virus directly, so much as exploiting the situation the virus has brought about.

Yes, I had got it, but how do you think British government is trying to fish in troubled waters?
