So now not only no travel restrictions in the UK, but for England no restrictions whatever, although some may exist for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This is extremely worrying for some in the UK, including myself, as I am in the autoimmune category and have been isolating since COVID and still am in many respects. While I have had 4 COVID vaccinations and waiting for my 5th within the next month. While my daughter is unable to be vaccinated as she is needle averse and due to her learning disabilities and autism does not have the capacity to understand the importance of being vaccinated.
COVID is still well with us and hospital admissions have started to increase, due mainly, I believe to the belief of many that COVID is no more. While the Government is still providing guidance to everyone to take care, this is, apparently, being ignored by many in the UK, so increasing the risk of COVID being spread and person who are vulnerable being at even more risk.
It is my belief that wearing of face masks should never have become non-mandatory in England and still are in health and social care areas , but many are unaware of this and become extremely agitated when requested to wear face masks in health and social care setting.
Even more worrying is the removal of free Lateral flow tests at the end of March 2022 and so should still be available, but are not over the internet as when making requests you are forever being told that slots are not available.
Also the requirements to have PCR tests when you may have COVID is no more so many could be around with COVID and do not know they have COVID, thereby increasing the risk to infect others.
This Government has abandoned their ‘Duty of Care’, that is, if they ever did have such duty or act as if they have, hence the Party moods which many in Government may have been partaking in which was then illegal, so we are still awaiting the MET investigations and possible convictions.
All of this is causing myself and many others to be extremely worrying, perhaps, even more so than the even the Ukraine situation and the illegal invasion of Ukraine by Russia and their allies. Causing so much destruction, deaths, injuries and displacement of Ukrainians.
This Government is appearing, to be rightly concerned about Ukraine and the Ukrainian population, but not about COVID and the spreading of COVID. So apparently, totally ignoring vulnerable persons in the UK, but that is nothing new for this Government and many previous Governments.
There are warnings that new COVID variants could arise and, apparently there is one already being Deltacron. Then headlines such as the one from the Daily Mail, being ‘Professor Doom strikes again! Chris Whitty says there’s a ‘HIGH CHANCE’ that a Covid variant worse than Omicron will emerge in next two years‘, where the comment Professor Doom implies ridicule and some may not take on the important message from England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty, who has many times made more sense than the Prime Minister Boris Johnson MP, who, is apparently mainly concerned with Parties and not COVID.
I know who I will listen too and it is not the King of Parties.
