The news about how Covid is spreading again is worrying and obviously (to me) we need to think carefully about how we act in order to control the spread. However, recently I have observed behaviour that makes me question what makes people tick. A local newspaper reported a story of a hairdresser who has a poster saying Covid free zone. No masks allowed as it doesn't exist. Yesterday I noticed a very lively pub with loud music. Lots of people were gathered in the outdoor area singing, dancing, standing, hugging and talking loudly as if they didn't have a care in the world. Today, in the supermarket, I saw a lady greet a man she clearly hadn't seen for a while with a big hug. These people were not youngsters- probably in their 50s. It made me think, do people really not understand the social distancing message or do they think that no one is going to tell them what to do? If this is typical then there is no chance of controlling this virus at manageable levels is there?
