Equally, if people had stop up against the lockdown in the first place, we might not be in this [lockdown] mess now.

That’s a great idea. Stand up against the lockdown and watch the bodies pile up.

No, I'm just taking into account the deaths caused by the lockdown itself- those from mass unemployment, mental illness, cancer patients not treated etc, etc. As well as the consequences of civil liberty erosion.

I  personally don't think the government has gone far enough, off the top of my head.

 

I'm still seeing lots of people walking into my local convenience store in the area I live not wearing a face covering almost to the point that I've thought have I missed a news article or briefing on tv , but I haven't and it totally frustrates me I agree that its important to keep the economy moving but id like to see the door marshals back with the idea in mind no face covering no entry with maybe the option to purchase one at the entrance to enable entry,

 

this virus isnt going to go away if people keep with the I'm alright jack attitude really grinds my gears.

People have a short memory... 

At the height of the original pandemic we were being actively advised not to wear masks. 

So why the panic now? 

Incidently, I wear a mask simply to avoid confrontation, not because I believe it does much good.

Then you should do a bit more research. There is mounting evidence that masks limit the spread of Covid. Your beliefs are irrelevant.

What type of masks does the evidence support? Is it all masks including face coverings or some masks?

I see Sturgeon has banned visiting other households, I wonder when Boris will follow her and do the same here. She has also advised people against sharing car journey's with people from other households.

Tinfoil towers are helping out 3 oldies. I'm not sure what happens if this is brought into play.

All of them to differing degrees.

 

But, I suspect that you know that and are just being obtuse.

We were advised not to wear them at the time because there was a global shortage due to ever country buying them up and most of them being manufactured in China who were, at that time, shut down as they fought to stop the virus spreading within their own populations.

 

The advice of that time not to wear them wasn't medical advice, it was about the best use of resources at the time. The supplies we could get at that point were needed for front-line NHS workers and other key workers.

 

Over time the problem of shortages eased as more manufacturing turned towards producing them. Our first lockdown succeeded in reducing the spread of the virus to low levels and at that point it became a better use of resources, not to mention a necessity if we were to reopen from lockdown, to get people reduce the risk of infection spreading again by wearing masks so that more of the virus-laden water droplets we breath out would get trapped in the mask. It's not something you need to believe in, it's been proven science for well over a century. Had people actually done this rather than throwing a hissy fit then there would have been a good chance that we wouldn't have almost 5000 new confirmed infections today, 10x the number we had in July.

Simple short answer regardless of your thoughts,

 

Because it is law

So you keep on saying. The less Covid we have, the fewer restrictions we have and the better mental health we will all have.

 

Allowing Covid to run riot will lead to more cancer patients not being treated, as hospitals will be over run by Covid cases. So that’s a total red herring of yours.

 

Putting a bit of cloth over your nose and mouth and standing 2m apart is hardly an erosion of your civil liberties. 


It’s time that all of the stupidity stopped and people grew up a bit.
