The infection rate is only going to go up. And up. And up. Why don't we lock down now, instead of waiting until things are worse? We are going to have to lock down anyway. What is the advantage of waiting? That just means it will be worse before we do lock down, worse during lock down, and take longer to get back to a manageable level of infection before we lift lock down. And don't say "education". Attendance in my school is down to 80% already, and we are a school which has not yet had to close a bubble.
