I am struggling to get my head around the fact that we’re still in Covid-19, and in school, children are getting sick with other illnesses from carrying stress over Covid-19. All that is required are masks. Having spoken to parents in my neighbourhood and through social media, it is clear the stress is making their children ill.
Covid-19 for those of us who live with a disability and who are still high risk, are now forced back into our homes, because ALL restrictions have been lifted. You can still catch Covid-19 with or without a jab because the UK is now open and wearing masks isn’t mandatory. I am home and use a KN95 mask when I manage to go out.
I am lucky I have my writing to keep me company, but writing is no consolation for the loss of liberty at the hands of a UK government that is intent on putting politics before people. I hate having to bring politics into my writing, but without the clarity I have anxiety, and I am left with little choice.
Also, the stats are proving that even if you are double jabbed the cases of Covid-19 are rising because precautionary measures have been lifted, but for some the vaccine is a gamble and they’re not comfortable with that.
And whilst with the vaccine you may not get sick to the point of losing your life, you can still get very sick. Scientists haven’t worked out and still don’t know how long we may have to live with the virus if we catch Covid-19.
There is no doubt all precautionary measures once in place, need to stay in place. It is the physical precautionary measures that are continuing to keep us safe. Lifting all measures is the primary reason I am home. I have lost my liberty.
What I am struggling with, is a serving UK Prime Minister taking away my liberties, because all precautionary measures have been lifted that will keep me safe.
