SA, I agree with ET. I know of someone who, during the Spring restrictions, was hounded by a police helicopter for sunbathing on a hilltop half a mile from the nearest other person.
The ideal situation would be if we were a population sufficiently educated to spontaneously behave appropriately during a pandemic, with authorities trustworthy enough to apply appropriate discretion with the small amount of residual enforcement that would be needed.
Instead we have “news” media that promotes doubt about the seriousness of our predicament and every defensive measure available to us. Even the BBC gave air time to S Guptra’s highly marginal and now thoroughly disproven perspective that a second wave was impossible. How many lives has that editorial decision cost?
