I know that government leaders everywhere are doing the best they can, and I know there are conflicting demands being presented to them. Reduce pandemic deaths or keep small businesses from going bankrupt... is it possible to do both at the same time?
And then there are people who don’t believe in the disease... others who don’t believe in the vaccine... and still others who don’t believe they will get it, so go wherever they want, gather in too-large groups and end up spreading it.
There was an example in Ontario 2 weeks ago... an indoor birthday party with 22 people invited. So far there have been 13 new cases of Covid from that one party, including children age 3 and 5 years (gee... I guess they didn’t believe children could get Covid).
We NEED to go into lockdown. The Premier is stalling... there have been over 2200 new cases of Covid every day for a week, and deaths in Ontario are now over 4200. We have to do something to slow down the spread of this disease until enough people have been vaccinated... maybe by June?... that we can go back to a relatively normal life.
Thanks for reading,
