Seems the government are hoping to get everyone to wear masks in shops, and the police to enforce it. Police say it's going to be impossible to enforce and shop staff have no real idea about wearing masks too. Visited a local Morrisons for the second time since the lock down, a staff member claimed they would not have to wear masks and it would be up to the company to decide.



Like I said, In Leicester the police there can not do anything with the Lockdown.

The time for this new mask policy was three months ago. Now we look even more stupid and you can bet it will be unenforceable (aka leave it down to shop policy to refuse to serve and let the staff deal with angry and aggressive customers).

I'm enjoying staying in more and more :lol:

Which is why America has an official death toll of 143,289  Britain's official death toll of 45,300 is proportionately even worse and a lot of covid deaths have been hidden by simply not counting people who were not tested.

The UK government has ordered 190 million doses of vaccine from three different companies. The issue here is we still don't know how effective the vaccines will be or if they offer long term protection. So far no vaccine for coronaviruses has been successfully developed.

and the arguable lack of necessity with such a high survival rate.

and I think measuring how many people die is a bit of misnomer... it's ignoring all the people who almost die, or who are/were seriously ill in hospital etc.

Agreed as the figures are sh*t, "Do not resuscitate" Orders seemed to have been sent out to homes, as well as the latest about the figures being stopped due to any detection of "covid" at any point, ie you could be positive in May, then get hit by a bus last week, "DIED DUE TO COVID"  :lol: :lol: :lol: :roll:



Anyway,

Pubs and theme parks have been open for well over 2 weeks now and yet again no doom spike, I've been to both first hand and there's no "social distancing" I've seen no masks in a pub, at Alton towers mask wearing was massively in the minority, the only time it was adhered to was when a ride was about to start, if everyone didn't have a mask on then no ride for you, as you can imagine once the ride started it was a case of it being pulled down off your face slightly for most.

There's no social distancing anywhere, its gone completely out the window and its pretty much a massive joke to think masks will be enforced in any meaningful way.

It's very hard to say wtf is going on any more, I looked and couldn't see any reporting on numbers or potential for a spike since lockdown opened. It's getting a bit surreal.

Regardless of your current view of the pandemic, I think this is a fair assessment of where we are at:

lol good fear porn from Mr Pie "YER YOU KNOW WOTS WERSE DAN A MARSK, VENTILATOR TOOB MAYTE" Social shame is an intriguing weapon in getting this enforced.


I do wonder how long for? Someone I work with said "well it's fine to wear one forever, I'm protecting other people" His mask was literally a home made rag :dunno: It'll be interesting if it goes the way of "social distancing" IE as time goes on more and more people bin it off regardless of if they're "told to" Or not.

It's definitely over the top! But I can't help but feel that complaining about wearing a mask when its so low effort isn't really helping matters, if there is a spike we could be back to square one seeing lockdowns again like Victoria in Aus, Spain, etc :dunno:

It is mandatory in the state of Victoria to wear masks. Police are struggling as there is this increasing amount of people with "Its against human rights" bullcrap but the police are starting to arrest them now. State borders are shut but people have been trying to get through still but finally also being arrested.


Victoria here is out of control. Everything though boils down to mistakes and idiots.


- Victoria refused to have the national guard monitor hotels for people in quarantine. They used security guards or hotel security and there were several mistakes and people escaping.
- Victoria people are just out of control from my friend in Melbourne, specifically Melbourne - Parties, bars and night clubs totally ignoring all the regulations etc in place.


For NSW there has been blips as you would expect but the big spike:
- 2 women got in from Victoria
- 1 of the above women went to a thai restaurant who was packing the place out and not doing the distancing and limits as they should. She infected people including staff.
- Said staff went to one of the other branches and infected staff and people there
- Then you got the spiral from those cases.
- The SAME 2 women then managed to get a flight to Brisbane and are the cause of infections there. Allowed to fly out and made false claims on the COVID flight documents to get in too.


Basically NSW and Brisbane spike is from 2 IDIOTS!
Victoria is a wash with errors and people just not even doing basics.


US is a mess but it just shows that everyone has to do their bit otherwise it can very easily go out of control again.

UK has been confirmed as being in recession, the worst of the G7 nations This is despite the Tory government trying to avoid shutting the country down and having the worst death toll in Europe.

Official death toll is 41,423, which ignores thousands of deaths above the seasonally adjusted average. Still highest in Europe.

Then all the government seems interested in doing is lining their own pockets and giving huge amounts of government money in fraudulent deals to their friends.

I've stopped worrying now my son is at nursery, there's little we can do to change things at this point and no one cares about mask wearing/distancing, etc.

We're still wearing the masks as obligated but can't help but think lockdown #2 or a lockdown lite variant might be around the corner.
