From a personal perspective I certainly hope lockdown ends on 21st June as I have tickets for the Goodwood Festival of Speed in early July, however the Government has the figures on the latest Covid numbers but it’s looking less optimistic than it was.
Not long ago vast numbers of football fans went to Portugal to watch a football match and I believe on the way out and on entry to Portugal they had to show a negative Covid test but from what I could see from news items of the fans behaviour, there wasn’t a great deal of social distancing from these predominantly fairly young and one must assume unvaccinated people.
I believe that on their return a similar test was required and should it prove positive they would have to isolate themselves for a period of time, a similar system was in place for travellers to India before that too became a red, no go destination.
Now it seems to me that as everything is now computerised, including one’s passport details, that the government must have a fairly good idea of who went where and who came back with Covid and I imagine there is a good chance they know who is not obeying the rules and self isolating.
Logic would seem to dictate that there was a rise in cases of Covid from people returning from India and Portugal as they are both now red no go countries.
So to sum up, if we don’t have an end to the lockdown on 21st June it will be because of the selfish people who went to India and Portugal and caught Covid and perhaps helped to spread it upon their return.
Now I’m not saying I’m a vindictive man but we know who you are and where you live, well the Government does and all it takes is one whistle blower to make public the list, on the other hand perhaps we will get our freedom and all you people on the list will breath a sigh of relief and be able to sleep soundly in your beds. Let’s hope so!
