My banking app reports my monthly spend by type, my bank knows exactly how much I normally spend in supermarkets. The data should not go to the Government but the banks could text/email/message those who have drastically increased their spend requesting that they cease immediately.

|Journalists and the Press in the Crisis|

Some of the emotive, inaccurate and opinion based reporting is probably undermining the national effort and costing lives, some of them need to quickly understand their public information role in a crisis.

'They think this is going to bring down Trump' - White House chief of staff
Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney has accused the media of stoking a coronavirus panic because they hope it will "take down" President Trump.
"We took extraordinary steps four or five weeks ago. Why didn't we hear about it? What was going on four or five weeks ago? Impeachment. And that's all the press wanted to talk about," he told a gathering of conservatives on Friday.
He said the press covered impeachment - which saw Mr Trump acquitted earlier in February - because they thought "it would bring down the president".
"The reason they are paying so much attention to it today is that they think this is going to bring down the president, that's what this is all about," he continued.
His advice for the markets, which have been tanking worldwide over virus fears: "Turn off your televisions for 24 hours."
|BBC v ITV News|
at 22:38 26 Feb 2020
Unusually for me I watched the BBC News at Six and was struck by the political commentary alongside news articles, so I watched ITV News at 10 and found pretty objective and well balanced reporting.
More inclined to use ITV in future if I bother to watch the news.
