It is such a multi faceted problem, I don't agree with the statement "I'm ashamed to be part of the human race" taking that rationale to it's logical conclusion we would be ashamed of everything bad mankind has ever done from Hitler through to Mao on one extreme, right through to some people's foolishness in flouting the social distancing guidelines at the other end of the spectrum of reprehensible behaviour. We can only be responsible for ourselves, and in an ideal world there would be a collective approach as to the dangers we are facing. All over the world, it seem there is a section of the human race that are determined to do what they want without considering how their cavalier behaviour will affect the rest of society.
On a personal level, we've cancelled everything two holidays abroad and a few small breaks in Britain, we are living quietly, only going to food shops and pharmacies, where we wear our masks, local walks, avoiding others, even walking into the road when those coming towards us (mostly young) don't drop into single file, getting most things delivered and sticking to a 30 or so mile radius when we do stray from home. My husband does play golf twice a week where strict social distancing applies, we've had lunch outside once on a terrace with a good deal of space between tables. Have met up with a some family, mainly in the garden, occasionally in the house, who we know haven't been mixing with all and sundry. What more can you do as an individual. Although I think it's a lot easier to be like this when you are part of an older demographic and naturally tend towards caution and perhaps as we age are blessed with a greater dose of stoicism.
I look at the heaving beaches on the south coast with a certain trepidation, I also think about how it must be to be a local and have half the country emptied into your locality, although as far as Bournemouth and Brighton are concerned, they always look like that whenever we are blessed with hot weather. It doesn't help that the lines are continually blurred and we are constantly getting mixed messages, although of course the nature of how the virus is manifesting is constantly changing.
We can't just look to those who have upped sticks determined to flood the south west though, and if you were cooped up with your kids in a flat, maybe pitching up somewhere near the coast is a last resort to save your sanity. I wouldn't do it, but then I'm not a parent of youngsters.
There are many demographics that feed the potential dangers. As well as the desperate holiday makers, or maybe not so desperate, I have seen this week-end pictures of people spilling out of pubs and gardens all over the place, a black quasi para military group out pounding the pavements of Brixton, those celebrating Eid, on going battles the police are having with illegal ravers. Then of course there are the sweatshops of Leicester, can we blame those women who no doubt need the money they earn to put food on the table, I wouldn't, but I would blame the factory owners though who break the law not only by not paying them the legal minimum wage but by also by not ensuring their working environment is safe.
I think it is being considered one of the measure that may potentially be enforced, is to expect those over 50, which is most of us on this site I imagine, to just not go out at all. In other words all of us who have been doing our best to be careful will have to pay a heavy price for those who haven't.
