It is late (for me) and I am watching the news wondering how we get the unconvinced to understand that it is important that we restrict our movement and give up gathering in groups if we are going to get through this experience safely.
I have already told my nephew's story: they wanted to go sking in France - I assume they had seen the reports about Covid19. But they went, flew to Geneva to find the slopes closed. And hung around with their friends for the Saturday, to have fun, before being jostled in Geneva airport and flying home. Both now have Covid19 symptoms.
Now I'm seeing a nurse who has got home but can't find food after working for 2 days on back to back shifts looking after CV patients. My daughters are both frontline staff, risking their lives while selfish punters, happy to panic buy because everyone else is and go to the pub, contiue in their own sweet way. Because - they say - they're alright, they are young. Except that is changing and young patients are also dying - because there are too many patients needing beds for what is available.
Is this self-preservation? Or just denial? Or sheer stupidity? Or does money talk that loudly?
Sorry - rant over ...
