So, week 2 of lockdown, and we have leapt up from 5th nationally to 4th, with daily figures of new cases seemingly rising on a daily basis.
As I travel doing my main employment and other volunteer work, I see many instances of what should not be happening – large gatherings at school gates with no PPE being worn by parents – are they protected in some magic way that I do not understand?
Groups of youths in park areas – more than 6 in each group and no masks worn?
More and more elderly people not wearing any form of mask in public places, and hearing people in the news openly defying the set rules, and just wanting freedom to do what they like and take their chances.
I’m sorry, but I want to survive this crisis, so if you don’t wear masks near me in public, expect me to challenge you, loudly !!
Back to my normal requests – have you seen neighbours and friends at distance to ensure their circumstances haven’t changed, or that they now need help where they did not previously in Lockdown 1.
I hope that the shocking rise in cases will get through to those who do not seem to care or worry about themselves or others around them.
SO, STAY SAFE, ADHERE TO THE RULES, PLEASE, SAVE YOUR LIFE, AND THAT OF OTHERS, BY KEEPING SOCIAL CONTACT AS LOW AS POSSIBLE.
