And the Isle of Man is back into fullockdown, four weeks after the pubs opened again (with everything else)

Contact tracing has today identified one packed music venue on Friday night and a pub the a person who today tested positive was in for 8 hours on Saturday night.

17 cases today and it looks like its going to snowball as there was zero distancing, masks etc.

My phone says I have been in 42 different drink and eating venues in February. 132 total visits.

Probably shows how people are liable to go nuts when able to (we had only been locked down for three weeks since June, and people still went nuts)

Imagine what it's going to be like in Leicester, we'll have been locked down for 14 months by the time the pubs reopen, it's gonna be chaos, I can't wait!

And do you think the lockdown has been well observed in Leicester ?

This is why testing must stop. Else you’re stuck in a continuous loop.

^this, cases don't matter if number ending up in hospital are manageable.

When we open up cases will inevitably rise. If you look at the previous times the young get it first then it spreads through the age groups. But when the young get it very few end up in hospital it's just not a problem.
It only gets bad when it hit the 50+ groups once these have been vaccine it will no longer be a problem.

We can then just forget about cases, it's here to stay it will be circulating in society. Everyone will get it every now and then getting a natural booster jab.

I agree but so many people are still terrified. Mrs BC and I walk on lanes and footpaths and come across people miles from anywhere wearing masks and making a point of passing at least 15 feet or more away from us. Others are too scared to leave home at all.

Project fear has succeeded.

Hilarious.

Business as usual in London. Apart from the shops of course. Parks and such as busy as a summers day last week.

Was out in Newcastle last night. Walked to the Tesco Express and back. Streets full of teens / student age kids loitering in groups of 2-5. Police sitting in their van across the road doing nothing. Bizarre.

They're still jumping off the pavement or diving into driveways around here.

I’ve seen pictures of the very busy London parks. More space available up here in East Anglia.

Not quite as bad as that around here.

However, had to visit the local Co-Op earlier to get some milk and there I was in a queue of 5 outside which was 30-odd feet long because "One person out, one person in" policy. The three women in front, all in their 20's I'd say, were all masked up. All the time in that b@stard light but persistent rain. I'm fking sick to death of all this masking / distancing / frightened of shadows st now.

It's weird with the co-op. We've got about 4 within a 2 mile radius where I live. Most of them seem to just be a relative free for all, but the one in the posher village down the road is 1 in 1 out.

I only shop online, I haven’t been into a non supermarket store now for over a year. When I have had to go to the supermarket (probably 5 times in the last year year) I’ve used Waitrose who are relaxed on no masks. The off licence round the corner when I need beer top ups are happy with no masks too. But Co-Op, I agree they seem to be militant, wouldn’t go near them!

Just don’t wear one. As soon as people stop doing all this crap the sooner it will go away.

Our local Waitrose has a person on the door with spare masks for those who have 'forgotten' them or 'left it in the car'. No one escapes. 100% masking. Shop with confidence in the quinoa aisle.
