There is no excuse for this kind of behaviour

I just watched this on the BBC news. And people wonder why this virus is increasing like it is. The footage shows crowds chanting in Nottingham city centre last night, ahead of the city going into tier three restrictions. Absolutely crazy behaviour that puts the public & police at risk.

Sadly too many people are too selfish or stupid.

Re: There is no excuse for this kind of behaviour

A SAGE scientist has said that the infection of C!9 is now progressing faster than the worst case scenarios allowed for. A 2 week "circuit breaker" national lockdown will now not be enough to put the brakes on the virus & we need a longer national lock down if any sort of festive season is to be salvaged. I fear that there is now a real danger that the NHS could be over run this winter. The worst scenario that the SAGE scientist referred to factors in a further 85000 deaths before the spring.

Re: There is no excuse for this kind of behaviour

My area is due to enter Tier 3 at 0.01 on Monday, I imagine that there will be many out celebrating in large groups right up until the last minute, overloading the emergency services at a time when we need to do all we can to protect them, and ourselves.

After two months and several attempts to get a Flu Jab, no stocks a week before one appointment, no stocks an hour after booking another, got a text this morning advising that some appointments were available at my local practice, by the time I powered up my computer and found the list of appointments, just ONE was left, crack of dawn tomorrow morning, here's hoping that it goes smoothly, and actually goes ahead!

Far to many COVIDIOTS out there in STUPID land, because they cannot see it they ignore it, if it was a guy with an AK7 they would rush indoors and saty there. -Angry.png-

My wife just went out to do the weekly shopping. They have got queues all around Tesco. People are panic buying again. So looks like that announcement has caused mass panic.

I am getting a bit sick of the way people behave in all aspects of this virus but that might be signs of me getting somewhat depressed with it all. It just seems to go on and on. Sick of the daily sob stories they add to the end of news items too. Sick of all the charity adverts using the virus to get more money out of everyone. Sick of all the repeats. Sick of the attitude of young people who don't seem to give a hoot. Sick, sick, sick of it -Angry.png-

I don't watch the tv news any more, too much depressing news articles on it, too many "Look at our young people acting like they are immune, and #### the older generation" attitudes. As for the adverts for charities as well, my goodness, £3 for cats, £3 for mutts, £3 for WWF, £3 for Save the Tiger, £3 for Save the Snow Leopard, £3 for Save the Panda, £3 for Save the Whales and then, of course, there are all the human support charities, how much money do they think people have to give away in a time of a Global Pandemic! And they want your money EVERY month.

Re: There is no excuse for this kind of behaviour

My concern if/when it's announced that schools will remain open, is that the parents will just use the school drop off/collection is a bit of a get together, which will end up in arguments and extra measures being put into place.

Some parents will end up keeping kids off school I think as well, regardless of whether they get fined or not.

Edit: Also why was some sort of lockdown put into place on top of this half term break!?

Tier 3 not now happening, rather a National Lockdown for at least a month from Thursday. Must call at the butchers on Monday and grab my usual 10 pack of Chicken breasts to put me on for the next ten weeks of Sunday lunches.

Local council leaders are showing more sense than central Government, in that they are advising that people should act as it Tier 3/National Lockdown is already active and stay home, keep distances and wear masks in shops, as well as washing hands even more regularly.
