WARNING: COVID POST: DEPRESSING
I have just switched on my computer and the first headline that hits me is this:
COVID: Police clash with protesters as thousands march through London against new restrictions (source)
With the UK number of Covid cases standing currently at 11, 279, 428 (source)
and record figures of new cases over 92K and 90K Friday and Saturday, WHAT THE HELL IS THE MATTER WITH PEOPLE ?????????
Look at this mob. How many masks? One? Two? How many are carriers and not know it? How many people in this crowd will go down with the virus in a few days? How many of them will die because of their stupidity? And that’s what it is.
Whilst I am not happy with the restrictions either (the above is my re-education look), I’d rather apply common sense like masking up, sanitizing often and social distancing than end up in hospital, or worse DEAD. We have lost two friends this year who were admitted to hospital after falls where they contracted Covid and died of the virus.
It is not a myth, it is not going to go away, and it kills, irrespective of age and gender.
My personal opinion is that the country should be put in lockdown……… not after Christmas, but now. But it’s not going to happen. Things like money, business and the economy take priority over life.
Sure it’s OK for me to sit here on my sofa in my cozy lounge and spout off about it, afterall, I’m retired, we don’t go to clubs, bars, the theatre or restaurants, I have no kids, and no family to visit or visit me. But even if we did, we would still try and act responsibly in keeping our family safe and protected. It’s all we can do now anyway because of stunts like this which are putting thousands more at risk.
Two words describe them best: SELFISH MORONS.
