Another dog walk. Got talking to an old pal.
Him: You're not still banging on about Covid are you?
Me: Well yes because it's being brushed under the carpet & just ignoring it puts everyone at continued risk.
Him: It's over. Live your life.
Me: My daughter is very vulnerable.
Him: How do you know it will be anything more than just a cold for her. She's vaccinated isn't she?
Me: She is but she has many conditions that we are struggling to even get looked at. Another problem on top could be very serious.
Him: Why are you struggling to get seen.

Most people have taken back what they can to urgently return to normal at the expense of those who can have nothing back at all. They are unaware of how this short-term reward to themselves will be our long term undoing.
There is no actual plan other than to ignore it.

I'm concerned as we head into winter that most people are unaware/insufficiently informed of how Covid is transmitted, the dangers it poses or how to protect themselves.
Here are some things everyone should know.
A basic overview for you, your friends or family members.
In the absence of any proper public health messaging, here are 4 categories of things folk ought to know about Covid but often don't.
