I don’t think that sending more vaccine & medics is really the answer. I thought it was the lack of bottled oxygen that was the issue...Let’s face it, the Indians living in this country aren’t exactly embracing having the vaccine so I imagine it’s the same problem in India. I can imagine the outcry here if we sent a large proportion of our vaccine supply to another nation who are actually producing it for themselves. The problem in India regarding this is corruption, poor living conditions & *iss poor planning. Charity begins at home until this is sorted too.Maybe send enough vaccine for medics and the older people rather than preventing travel. That way the variants can be reduced. The sooner the World reduces Covid the better chance humanity has. National protectionism , blocking travel is short term solutionism. Big thinking required. Nationalistic triumphalism over vaccines is as useful as fishing for bream with half a mackerel
Same next to takeaway shops from day 1 of covid crisisHaving returned to the gym after the lockdown (Puregym) unfortunately we are only advised to wear a mask while entering and walking about, the majority of people do, the main offenders not wearing masks are all Asian (very fit and healthy) and its the same people who refused to wear one before the last lockdown, I did email Puregym as they asked for a review on my feelings on returning to the gym, I did not name anyone or race asking nicely why was this not a rule similar to shops, buses etc, they replied saying my review could not be published due to "reasons included in the review" these people walk from machine to machine without cleaning equipment, stand and talk to each other so it makes me wonder how they act at home and when they go out as it certainly wont help stop the transmission.
No holidays abroad for me this year even though next sat i have my 2nd injection. I do miss going away but i think its to early .Holidays abroad from the 17th May ??
What's your opinions on this should it get passed?
Myself personally, I think they're rushing into it to satisfy the tourism industry. We've got this far so why not continue for a while to see how things go and get far enough ahead of the virus for it to no longer be a serious threat to public health.
We were meant to be on an Adriatic and Mediterranean cruise this summer for my good lady's 60th. However that was cancelled early last year. I think I will give it a few years before we look at one again.Staying in the U.K. this year. Greek Islands next May all being well.
