A LOCKDOWN TOO FAR

Recommended Posts

Is a lockdown the only tool in the authorities toolbox? It appears so because there are warnings of increased curbs if the number of cases does not decrease. Unfortunately, the number of cases both in the general population, and prison population have actually increased since the current restrictions were implemented. This is pretty much a case of bolting the stable door after the horse has gone. We have to accept that Covid is unlikely to go away, containment is clearly not working, and vaccines being the optimum solution. Recent reports in the US show that a very high percentage (high 90s) of new Covid cases are unvaccinated. The importance  of getting people vaccinated cannot be overstated, therefore, the efforts to procure effective vaccines needs to be intensified. Currently, to some degree, we seem to be reliant on donations and handouts. Transparency on vaccine procurement is so important, not least to reassure people that help is on way, and when the help is coming.

Of course the title could have been a take on that famous movie "A Bridge too Far" which also ended in a tactical disaster.
