Whatever happened to living WITH covid. I don’t believe that people wouldn’t change their behaviour once it gets past a tipping point.
The lockdown issue is it doesn’t work. No one has changed behaviour from level 2 to 4 as people have lost confidence (and rightly so ) in the measures. Also Nphet obvious have no faith in the level 3/4 as they have abandoned there own plan.
This lockdown will be followed by multiple lockdowns. 6 weeks up to Christmas is non-sensical as any relaxation will result in guess what - Christmas parties/celebrations.
The problem with the Level 1-5 issue is there is no enforcement or possibility of enforcement. Anyone who wants to have a party or go too a party or dinner party, can and will. The household spread I believe is the main source of infections. this will not change until things get worse.
What is actually needed is a way of enforcing isolation for those with covid. If you get covid now you can pretty much travel anywhere without sanction.
Ive changed my habits by not meeting my parents which unfortunately will extend well past Christmas. This rather than level 1 to 50 will at least have some impacts.
The collapse of the economy has some pretty serious social and health impacts long term.
