I fear I have lost the friendship and respect from a few people of late. I apologise if you are one.
My reality is that I have no idea of the truth behind Covid, but I know people are dying from it. I know those who survive often do so with long term illness or conditions as a result.
I also know that a simple mask is not the equivalent of a HASMAT or NBC suit, however I also know that anything over your mouth has a restrictive effect upon what comes out through breathing or a sneeze. It may not stop infections being released but it does reduce the distance and alter direction. Three layer masks can reduce it significantly.
I am also aware that now lockdown is to an extent locking the stable door. I know it has a huge adverse effect upon emotional, physical and mental wellbeing.
I know I believe a further lockdown will result in mortality rates rising through suicide.
I also know that curfew has no valid reason in fighting infection, and if anything actually heightens risk.
I do think there needs to be further restrictions but sensible ones. Seperating family and close friends will not help, but closing schools, universities and non essential workplaces will.
If you look at the regs for pubs currently they are ridiculous, you wear a mask until your seated but then you don’t have to, does C19 only infect those stood?
In warehouses I am told social distancing does not and cannot be adhered to, this is supported by the rates of infection in Amazon Warehouses. Google it.
Sadly we have an inherently inept, cruel, greedy and corrupt government, headed up by an incompetent arse.
This government cares nothing for you. If you are over 50 or have chronic health conditions their default setting is you will not be resuscitated if your body shuts down, whatever the cause.
If the Primate minister had reacted early on by lockdown, by isolating the UK from flights from infected areas, by a proper quarentine, by following the medical advice and not Cummings’ financial and fascist agenda we would be in a far better position now.
We do not matter to the Ape Johnson, or his cronies (parents included) because their investments, now they have stripped the UK are abroad, so their is little profit for them in the UK. They only remain because they are intent on wringing every last drop from us.
We are not cost effective as people hence the DNR placed on the ill, elderly and disabled.
Covid19 is not Flu. It is not benign, it is extremely malevolent and malignant. It does kill, it does maim, it will mutate, as it has already and continues to do so. The most dangerous period with any infection is winter.
So when I say I expect folk to wear masks I bloody well do. But I am not naive, I know the chump and his band of merry arseholes are using the pandemic to bring in their own agenda, I am aware their Bible seems to be Mein Kampf, that they are openly fascist and controlling, that they are using it to strip our rights.
So please understand I take the pandemic seriously, I have from the outset, I know it kills, but I also understand why people are confused, suspicious and angry. Because we all are.
I base my view on experience, on loss, on talking nurses and hospital staff down from suicidal thoughts due to the pressure they are under, from being there for my friends who are not coping, from still not being able to properly comfort my grieving parents or for them to comfort me.
On this vile journey the world is currently on I have lost close family to obstanacy, to anger, to emotion, I have fatally lost friends to accidents, chronic health issues and yes C19, I have at times lost not just me, but the ability to see a way forward, lost hope! But hope can return, as can normality, we just need to work together, use common sense and help others stay safe, even if we don’t care about ourselves.
We are, we the people, not the politicians, in this together. It will be us that live or die through our own actions, and the more we act rashly the more excuse we give them for stealing our rights and ultimately bringing in a martial regime.
