“Stupidity isn’t punishable by death. If it was, there would be a hell of a population drop.” ―
The other day Boris Johnson congratulated us (the people) for following the Coronavirus safety rules, and because of our ‘good behaviour’ and the reduction of infections we are to be allowed a further relaxation of the rules.
I was a little stunned – if we have done so well, why is the death rate so high?
If we have all followed the rules, why is the number of those infected by Covid-19 so high?
Recently, someone reminded us that the deaths and those hospitalised from Covid-19 are MOSTLY the elderly, the obese and those with underlying health problems.
I know all that, but what I am curious to know is how they contracted the virus in the first place?
- Is it because they didn’t do as they were told?
- Did they refuse to stay at home?
- Did they not self-isolate when they were asked to?
- Did they forget to wash their hands?
- Did they ignore social distancing?
If it’s not their fault, then whose fault is it?
- Did a family member ignore the rules?
- Did one of the carers ignore the rules?
Why are so many care homes Covid free, while other homes have been severely affected?
We can’t blame other countries for the number of infections in the UK, and I think it’s probably unfair to blame the government; each of the four countries in Britain has leaders that have made concerted efforts to lead, show empathy and protect us.
I don’t doubt there have been mistakes along the way, but the government gave us clear information as did the scientists; we were told to keep our distance, wash our hands and Stay at Home, so what went wrong?
The rise in the infection rate during those first weeks was understandable, but after that, everyone knew the score, it’s not arcane so why did it continue to rise at an alarming rate?
In the South of England last week, half a million people showed the whole world how selfish and irresponsible they can be. This was Shocking What are our chances when faced with such stupidity?
If what happened in those resorts and on those beaches in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch is anything to go by, then I’d say our chances are pretty grim!
If we do have a spike in infections, then surely it’s time for the government to stop praising the public for a job badly done. Isn’t it time to get tough and tell it how it is.
