We need to listen to this guy. More so than the voices of the sensationalist media.

No Surprise


The UK could see a second spike in coronavirus cases if young people don’t follow social distancing rules, the health secretary says.

A third of all cases in England last week were people aged between 20 and 29.

Ever since the declaration of the pandemic. Ever since the UK government invoked the lock down. There were reports of youngsters ignoring the rules.

Angry reports, on social media, of large gatherings of youths in our local parks late into the night. And then there are the illegal raves with hundreds gathering.

Many will say there is no surprise, that this is the young doing what they always do, that we should let them get on with it, leave them alone.

But, and it’s a big but, there are the potential consequences.

Pick something up at these large gatherings and you take it home. Pass it on to your siblings, to your parents and even your grandparents.

Many people will blame the government, saying they are not doing enough. Blaming mixed messages and so on.

But one thing the government has been clear about, have constantly stated amidst all of their messages.

Maintain social distancing, maintain good hygiene practices, wear masks.

I just hope, given the rise in infections amongst the young, that they get the message. And soon.

They Are Walking Amongst Us

These people are morons.

With millions dead and millions more sick, these idiots are saying “you can’t catch what doesn’t exist”.

I can only think that they believe the pandemic to be a global conspiracy.

Anybody who enters this salon only has themselves to blame if they or their family and friends get sick.

The authorities should close them down.
