I think I am totally confused.
1. As I understand it the lockdown was largely put in place in order to prevent a sudden and unsubstainable load on the NHS and particularly the Intensive Care beds and care. This has been pretty successful.
2. CV19 is NOT going away - and the chances of any vaccine at any time is small. No vaccine has ever been found against any Coronavirus - and diseases like AIDS, even after nearly three decades of work, no preventative vaccine has been found.
3. Winter months are likely to be most dangerous - particularly for those people who may require hospital care - as beds are ALWAYS in short supply then.
So - obviously, there must be an increase in those infected WHENEVER we start to come out of our homes and move around and meet up with other people. We can choose to stay indoors for longer - if we can afford to do so. We can keep children at home for longer - we can just continue to have shopping delivered to us forever. BUT, SURELY WHENEVER WE COME OUT WE ARE GOING TO BE AT RISK OF GETTING THIS VIRUS.
I am confused - please correct any of this which is wrong - but it seems to me that all we are doing by staying at home at present is delaying when we are likely to contract this disease - and in a few months time, it could be more difficult, than at present, for any who are seriously ill with it to be treated.
