“Keep Alert”

I really don’t understand how stupid this government is. They’re beginning to ease the lockdown event though we are still seeing fresh cases of the virus. The only justification they are using for this is because the R base count (infection rates) is lower than 1 which means each person with the infection is infecting fewer than 1 other person.

I’m now concerned that this is putting me at risk of infection as I have previously had pretty much totally unencumbered work with nobody nearby – I can actually do my work totally unaccompanied if required (and often do – I hold keys for a number of buildings). Boris is releasing this immediately after a Government sponsored mass gathering (VE Day) which could have increased the infection rate – especially after people were seen doing conga lines, but we don’t have 2 weeks for it to show.
