The problem with their restrictions is that there are so many holes in them that they can't possibly effective. I agree that there is still another week's worth of risk, my preference in how to handle this would be more along the lines of:Someone with Covid who caught it at a restaurant was picked up during the snap lockdown, which means in this instance the 3 day lockdown probably prevented a larger outbreak. Why complain about rapidly easing restrictions that will have the effect of making people more cautious just in case we missed someone? This illness still has a 14 day incubation period right?
Pretty sure the government is relying on enough people doing the right thing that in the unlikely event we have missed someone Covid positive spread will be more limited than if there were no restrictions, so if you want to set a bad example for everyone go for it but don't pretend it's righteous.
- No crowd at the football for this week, it is impossible to safeguard given all the interactions people will have on the way to and from the game
- Open restaurants/bars etc, but table service only and 4m2 to keep people spaced out. No dancing.
- Keep nightclubs closed (unless they can pivot to table service food/drinks).
- Work from home where you can
- Ditch masks - they are a pisstake and we didn't need them first time around. Sure, if everyone had the proper P95 grade (or whatever they are), then they would protect us, but these ill fitting cloth things don't do squat.
