Can we have a clear explanation of the present situation. Cases are high in many areas, including here, Bristol and Cornwall. But deaths and hospitalisations are ???? obviously lowered, but low enough? I want a statement that says “Whilst Covid is not defeated we are in a situation to manage it it. Those over 60 and those with other conditions should continue to exercise maximum care. The vaccine is not a total shield against the virus or more importantly the variants. Therefore mask wearing and social distancing should be maintained in confined areas like shops. People, especially the young should be aware of the risks of close encounters with others in places like night clubs, and the risk of passing it on to vulnerable people. But the virus has not disappeared, and we all need to accept its existence in our day to day lives”.
