It Feels Like a Crisis is Coming

France has declared a state of emergency and issued curfews for several of its cities. Northern Ireland has closed schools and many close-contact services such as hairdressers and beauticians, and introduced tight new hospitality rules that come into place the day after tomorrow. There’s a lot of debate here in the UK about whether our Government is doing the right thing by not announcing a national lockdown for a short period of time – a circuit breaker – to try to bring the virus under control, although many argue that it’s now too late for that to work even if it were imposed tomorrow. I have no idea what is best. I rely on my own research and what the experts and Government advise. I wonder whether schools will not go back after half term?

      Yes. I think after the first wave we had the idea that a vaccine wouldn’t be too far off, and that we had the virus under control. But it’s all come back again, so soon, and seems to be worse than ever. I wish I could stay safely indoors and shield myself but the kids have to go to school and I have to go out and do the shopping etc. Most of us are acting as if nothing’s wrong at all. It’s so strange with such an invisible enemy.
