When will this shit end?

Lots of very grim reading today. Anecdotally it seems much worse now than it ever did during the Spring. I knew one person who had Covid back in the Spring - now I know about 10 that have had it recently/currently including 3 separate family members (all okay, just feeling really rough) and I’m currently self isolating after being in contact with someone. Might just be an outlier, but it feels out of control.

One of the biggest things for me is people’s behaviour hasn’t changed with the new restrictions. People, in my experience, are openly ignoring them. The tier approach doesn’t work and the government needs to be more heavy handed with clear guidance ASAP to stem the utter shit show we’re heading towards. 

I hope you’re gonna be ok and don’t pick the virus up mate.

Yeah I agree I’m tier 1 and don’t really see people keeping 2 meters from others etc. It hasn’t been helped by the governments messaging at all.

I think on a music festival message board it’s a legitimate question to ask. It doesn’t suggest the OP doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Of course there are much bigger things to be worrie

I can’t get the following thought out of my head and it’s making the old bottom lip wobble: Wednesday evening at the 2021 festival, the sun has been out all day but temperature not stifling, perf

Howdy folks...sorry I'm late to the party! Was in a meeting and could see notifications coming up! So, looks very promising indeed. The vaccinated group not only didn't develop severe disease, bu

They have not got a clue. 

To be fair it's not like there is a play book for this situation and it is fairly fluid. 

There were a little dammed if they do and dammed if they don't with the regional approach. If it worked happy days if it didn't they should have gone harder quicker.

Same here. Second wave been much closer to home, although maybe that’s because we’re testing more this time?

Cheers dude! We’ve got through a week of isolating so I think we’re out of the woods. Definitely the closest to home it’s been.

The only thing there is that if it doesn’t work then hospitals fill up, it’s a very risky strategy. For sure it’s a difficult situation but they haven’t helped themselves at all.

Glad you are keeping your spirits up! Keep going my man.

They should have never made masks mandatory, cases have risen steadily ever since. 
People (idiots) think they can ignore social distancing if they’re wearing a mask. The messaging on this hasn’t been strong enough. 
Stopped at Tesco on the way home for a couple of bits, remove the masks and it would have been a normal day in Tesco this time last year.

Or alternatively people got bored with social distancing anyway and the masks have prevented a far worse situation than we currently have ... and  it’s bad enough as it is !!

Yeah I'm not sure its spreading in supermarkets- more the social interaction in people's houses that is replacing pub trips. Because people have to drink together- its the English way...

yeah, what is it with that? I much prefer drinking on my own, having a little cry.

Only when watching Glastonbury coverage....

More thinking the big groups- and that wont stop whatever they shut.

Basically these reports are an economy destroying measure that probably won't have much effect on the spread unless kids really don't transmit it to their parents....

Obviously we'll get more information soon but would this be full March lockdown with a stay at home message or more of a May/June one where we're still allowed to socialise in certain locations as they seem to be suggesting schools and shops can stay open?

Well obviously leaking it the newspapers on a Friday instead of telling parliament is the right thing to do

Bet the slogan will be “Stay at home, control the virus, save christmas”

I don't see how they can justify stay at home if they're keeping schools and shops open, it's more likely to be 'control the virus, save lives, save Christmas'

How can they justify saying save Christmas, Christmas will be different anyway this year. They need to get ahead of that too.
