1/1 A thread offering some reflections on the #SydneyOutbreak of #COVID19 #DeltaVariant and ending the #SydneyLockdown from a #socialmarketing perspective.

First, behaviour is driven by more than individual psychology & trying to motivate people to do ‘the right thing’.
2/14 The socio-cultural & structural environment also shape people’s behaviour 🙄 Yet, this receives less attention in policy & health behaviour change efforts. This is where a Strategic Social Marketing can come in. au.sagepub.com/en-gb/oce/stra…
3/14 Social marketing uses #marketing & #SocialSciences principles to encourage health #behaviourchange. And it has been used before to tackle pandemics 🤔 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…

I agree with you @jeffreyatucker that this correlation “of those who tested positive, it was found that 18.3 per cent had visited a supermarket” should not be interpreted as a causal relationship. However, I look at this from another perspective.

I mention this in an article I wrote in May.
« The two-meters social distancing rule is very utopian. It is certainly impossible to implement in #supermarkets- the main source of contagion even under the strictest lockdown conditions.»

My point is even if we #lockdown people, not allow them to work or do ‘unnecessary’ shopping or ‘unnecessary’ physical exercise, we still need to let them eat; unless, the plan of course is blatant mass genocide.

Previously (read first ), I mentioned the setup & history of a plan for a #GreatFoodTransformation of diets worldwide away from #meat, which is linked to the World Economic Forum's #GreatReset

Let's now look at how fast things are moving already
Thread 👇 Image
As a reminder: the #EATLancet Commission behind this plan advocates "hard policy interventions", because the public would otherwise reject its ideas. Also, social engineering is being deployed by its partner (WRI), based on the following strategies... Image
I already mentioned that this plan has considerable leverage over the new #EU food policy framework (the #GreenDeal) - setting the stage for the interventions favoured by #EAT & #WRI Image

Even though #Thailand government has reassured people there's enough food stockpile in nation & urges all not to panic buy as #supermarkets remain open, people forming long lines at #Bangkok #grocery store buying up essentials like #rice #oil #eggs #sugar #COVID19 #coronavirus
March 22 to April 12, #Thailand #Bangkok will shut more venues like #malls #salons #beauty clinics this means thousands more employees now will have no work for some 3 weeks. Not sure how firms/businesses are going to deal with this greater economic impact #Covid_19 #coronavirus

THIS picture of an elderly man in an Epsom supermarket this week mol.im/a/8126263 via @MailOnline....

Professionally and personally I find it harrowing.
You find yourself creating a narrative ...

I don't know this man. I don't know his situation. But I recognise the posture. It's defeated.
As if staring at the list will generate some semblance of order as to what item to look for next. Which is likely to be a futile search in 🇬🇧 #supermarkets at the moment 2/
The #Supermarkets #panicbuying may have you feeling clever as you hoover up newly refilled stock to brag about later🙄
But next time, spare a thought for that elderly person. Perhaps someone with early #dementia whose routine of a little shop is now a nightmare + NO DINNER 3/

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

#BBCNews #Skynews #Itvnews #Channel4News #ThisMorning #TheresaMay #UKGov #LBC
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.
