Are people becoming complacent now?

Postby Once a blue always a blue44 » Thu May 21, 2020 12:48 pm

We’ve heard stories the whole way along about the minority not adhering to lockdown rules but I’ve seen quite a few people who are obviously not from the same household mixing with others or workmen etc. Fair enough people need work done but there is no social distancing and they are standing very close to each other chatting away. My personal view is that this is very dangerous and it’s way too early to start doing this yet.

There’s a big difference between necessary and unnecessary risks and A work person chatting to someone up close isn’t what I would class necessary. Yes work needs to get done and sometimes it’s impossible to keep distance.

Yes, of course, there are a lot of thickos about they have kept the virus going up until now.

Fingers crossed though a lot of the thickos will have now had it, so we may have built up some thicko herd immunity, if the sensible percentage keep being careful, we just may be able to keep the virus at bay :thumbup:

I wonder if that site Manager would feel the same if he was on a ventilator fighting for his life in 2 weeks time??

Agree if was on ward but this is in refreshment areas like concourse in uhw? Staff from different areas meeting up for coffee in groups Morriston hospital even worse! Yes all work at hospital but social distancing is social distancing no matter where you are or who you are? Or what's point of banging on about it.... :roll:

I can also say the same is happening at Llandough hospital, nurses and doctors all eating together,walking corridors with no distance at all between them,and visitors and patients in the cafe areas.I too was under the impression of one rule for everybody, but even the police don't bother! Giving Joe public the impression of "well they ain't doing it,why should I? " in cardiff,we simply don't have the wide pavements,so you either jump into the road,or look daft trying to squeeze past each other. :old: :bluebird:

Lot of it outside is more people out less space it's that simple! How can businesses like pubs cafe shops ect survive economically with couple of people at a time allowed in? Mass job losses as businesses will fold rather rapidly once gvmnt help stops.

In the glorious sunshine of Britain’s most popular beaches, lockdown no longer seemed to exist.

As temperatures hit 25 degrees on the sunny Bank Holiday Monday, British people packed picnics and traveled in their droves to beauty spots in order to enjoy the weather with their families.

The crowds have been hit with stinging criticism for putting the health of the country at risk - but revelers have pointed out that if the Prime Minister’s most senior advisor can break the rules, they can too.

In Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council warned the seaside resort was approaching "maximum capacity", as some traveled from as far as Liverpool to the beach.

Police urge 'common sense' over lido gathering

Police were called to a lido in London and beachgoers warned not to overcrowd the seafront as sunseekers in England sought to make the most of the bank holiday weather.

Metropolitan Police officers were called to Ruislip Lido in north London to reports of a large group gathering there.

The Government has urged people to continue to follow social distancing guidelines.

"Please use common sense when it comes to social distancing," the Met's Hillingdon branch tweeted.

Elsewhere, crowds flocked to beaches and parks around the country to enjoy more good weather, a week after the Government relaxed guidance to allow people to visit beauty spots in England.

Hundreds were seen on Bournemouth beach, where the local council had warned people to "think twice" before heading to the seafront after nearby car parks were filled.
