Last week in Australia there were protest rallies in support of events stemming from America. Despite State Premiers, our Prime Minister and health authorities requesting people to stay home thousands descended on our major cities. One person who attended a rally in Melbourne, Victoria has tested positive to Covid-19. I understand people wishing to show support to our American friends but in this current climate for the love of GOD people think of the wider community.Every time there seems to be some good news it's crushed. Very disheartening.
I know - it's cruel on so many levels. If you don't die of COVID-19 because you're in total lockdown, then you might die because you are in lockdown for a very long time. Without exercise such as a long walk, you may suffer muscle atrophy. You may even get a higher blood pressure which of course can cause heart problems. Isolation is good for absolutely no one.I know the coronavirus is very serious, but how can any country survive another several months of this lockdown, economically, socially, and psychologically?
I was always one for going out and socialising. However the thought of going to a bar, getting table service, social distancing, sitting very far apart at tables, limited numbers of people allowed in the bar. Well of that sounds like a punishment to me. It seems like there would be zero craic. I cant see me going near many bars for a while. I would like to go to a few nice restaurants with my food buddies though.N Ireland is opening bars and restaurants on July 4 and of course my friend who cannot stay at home immediately wants to go out. The rest of us are more cautious and in no rush. I have no real desire to be going out immediately - is that silly?
Babies are now getting it. It’s still very much here. I’m actually finding the relaxing of lockdown even more of a headmelt than the supposed lockdown itself. I can’t do this wishy washy stuff of being in between.
My friend hasn’t abided by the rules at all either - which worries me about being too close.
The Prime Minister said it was alright for people to act on their instincts when he was defending Dominic Cummings so I imagine that if you are a Liverpool fan waiting 30 years to win the top English football league your instinct would be to celebrate with other Liverpool fans. The police couldn't do anything because Boris Johnson effectively ended the lockdown when he backed Cummings.Congratulations to Liverpool fantastic win and all that, BUT - 2000 people in a tight space all celebrating last night and the police did nothing?
And people still can't hold proper weddings and funerals???
Just like the crowds on the beach yesterday. Selfish halfwits with no concern for their safety or that of other people.2000 people in a tight space all celebrating last night and the police did nothing?
