I'm wondering if people are obliged to tell the NHS if they have the virus?
I just read that we only have 2 cases here.
There's no way of knowing how many secret cases there are because many do not want to be forced to stay home and isolate.
They bring in all these new rules like mask wearing and then don't put in any mechanisms to police this. So why would people who don't want to wear a mask comply? How can you tell who is not wearing one because they have a condition or who is wearing one because they stick two fingers up at their fellow citizens?
I went to tesco at the weekend because of the changes in mask wearing. I had to go to the post office there as was desperate to return some unwanted purchases. So you think let's go buy groceries, people are wearing masks.... except a) not everyone is, b) staff are not policing anything, c) they don't seem to have any one way systems or anything, d) they are not maintaining distance in queues. Some people think a mask is a fashion accessory to be worn under their chin, under their nose etc. It's fascinating to study the human psychology.
So at the weekend I queued up because people were behaving but the other day when I had to go back to the post office I did not buy anything. If tesco can't be bothered to make sure customers are safe they can get stuffed. I'm not interested in standing like a sardine ready for tinning. This bug is not going away and last weekend was probably the safest time but going forward I'd say be careful!
Boris walk the walk rather than just waffle about lockdown in name only! Put some blinkin' processes in place to police this - fine people! Humiliate them for not distancing or wearing a mask. It's ridiculous, we will be stuck in the revolving door forever at this rate just because of being sloppy and lacking in gumption.
