COVID DIARY: DAY 54, The Crazies

Things are getting strange in the UK. We have a Prime Minister who nearly died from Covid-19 that wants people to start going back to work if they can. He believes Reception pupils are the most likely to follow social distancing rules that’s why they are the first to be going back in June. Then we got Herr Trump saying that the US is winning against Covid when clearly it has the highest number of deaths. We’ve been told face masks do little to protect you from the virus (better for protecting others from you) and yet we’re now being told “No it’s okay, really. Just pop a face mask and head off.”

What makes it worse is that the crazies out there were already breaking lockdown rules amd congregating in parks and beaches. Instead of punishing them, we’re now told to gp join them. My suspicion is that Boris is thinking that we already have 32,000 dead, so how many more are likely to die. Its like you’re on a bus hurtling towards a precipice and instead of putting the breaks on, the driver decides to speed it up.

Don’t be an idiot. If you don’t need to go out, don’t. If you have to go out then practice social distancing and take all possible precautions. Be prepared to self isolate if you start showing symptoms. Don’t put your family at risk. I’ll see you all on the other side.
