We won't be mixing, and, like so many others this means not seeing loved ones we normally would at this time (Some of those we wont have seen for a year). However, in order to keep them, us and others safe, we've decided it's better to stay put and not mix in close, confined spaces no matter how hard it is. Some people just don't get it, I'm afraid, but whatever the Government advises, some will interpret things to suit their own agenda, and do their own thing believing the virus couldn't possibly target them and theirs, only other people... ?
I totally agree with you. We’re in a similar position.
My neighbour’s daughter is a nurse on the coronary care unit of a big London hospital. She has tested positive for Covid as have all the nurses on the ward and all the patients unfortunately. Now these are staff used to using PPE and understand how cross infections can occur. It was a Covid free ward but they still used basic PPE. However the virus has still spread despite them being tested twice weekly. So sitting 2m apart and opening windows may help for 30 mins but it isn’t going to stop infection over a Christmas Day.
It’s people that travel not the virus.
I’m imagining how that hospital ward is going to be staffed- will some of the patients die from Covid as they are all vulnerable and how many others waiting for urgent treatment will be postponed.
We all need to think of the inevitable toll on the NHS when there is a spike in infection after Christmas. The vaccine is on its way we just need to hold firm for a while longer to see our families.
