When will this shit end?

Recommended Posts

Honestly I am feeling a bit hysterical right now. I can't believe how reckless, how careless they are being, just because their ratings are in the toilet. I want to shout and scream it from the rooftops to people to keep isolating. 

We're doomed. The country is being actively guided into a second wave and there is nothing I can do to stop that happening.

I was scared when this all began over here but I thought we would just have to hunker down for 3-4 months and then the worst would be over, but right now it feels like the worst is yet to come.

Sorry for doom-mongering. As I said, bit hysterical...

Perfectly reasonable reaction @WestCountryGirl.I've been feeling that way for a while. Hope I'm wrong. Hard to know what to really believe these days.

I agree with you but honestly, you will be able to hunker down for longer and be fine. It's up to us to make our own decisions now, we can't help others loads but are indirectly doing that by looking after ourselves.

There are plenty who see us as weak and scared for our views, so let them make their decisions.

The government have different priorities - only Brexit matters to them and further waves will mask that, to their benefit

Don’t apologise, it’s very natural to feel that way.

 

The only thing you can do is make sure yourself and your loved ones are as safe as possible. It will ease in time, if there is a second wave then we’ll have to ride that one out too.

 

They should’ve locked down earlier, everyone knows that now. There will be a days of reckoning for these people when all their decisions will be laid bare for us to see. At that stage will we finally be able to hold these people to account. In the meantime try to convince those around you to be cautious and stay safe.

I'm not watching the briefings anymore because they just stress me out too much but somebody needs to be asking this question!!!

It is so frustrating I seriously just want to cry.

I’m at the stage almost where I’m going to stop paying attention to it because it is seriously effecting my mood. I’ve been in an awful mood for two days now and that’s the only thing it can be.

I'm sorry you feel that way, i think it echoes how a lot of people feel.

 

If it helps, most people will be staying at home  im pretty sure. And people meeting up outside and keeping 2 metres about shouldnt have as much of an effect on the R rate.

Is the 6 people meeting thing 6 people but only from 2 households?

Nope, can be from as many households as you want according to the guardian

 

'

When the government announced its coronavirus “roadmap” this month, it said it was examining a plan for “bubbles”, which would see two or more households allowed to in effect combine for social purposes.

But that has been rejected in favour of a simpler approach, which will allow meetings with individuals from different households, as long as they take place outdoors.'

It’s 6 people regardless of households.

It was rumoured to be DC’s Sister, but apparently it isn’t. If you mean her?
