I concur with all the letter writers who are asking “have we learned nothing from the previous lockdowns?”. We are battling a pandemic that has the potential to kill millions of people across the globe. To date we have done a fantastic job despite the incessant carping from various people and organisations. Of course there have been mistakes and always will be but I wonder how much better we would have done if everybody had followed the advice of the health professionals. Wear a mask properly, use the QR codes etc even if it you don’t think you should. Remember – if the Covid gets you, you’re a lot time looking at the lid (of the coffin).
