So many people really not getting this. It's one thing to disregard your own personal safety, but this is about everyone's personal safety and not proliferating it further not just to the elderly and vulnerable, but to literally everyone - the disease is indiscriminate on who it effects and how badly it effects them.
Most of those people yesterday either don't give a flying monkeys, think they're immune as they're young and/or healthy or even worse think it's a 'common flu' or worse still don't even believe this thing is real. That's one thing to risk your own health and life, but this is about everyone's safety. So many selfish people on this planet and this pandemic is really highlighting it.
All that said though, as was pointed out to me yesterday, thankfully whilst there was a lot of people at both those scenes yesterday, which will undoubtedly push the R rate up and potentially cause a new upwards trend of cases in the coming weeks, the vast majority of us are actually taking this with at least some seriousness.
I have never seen so many people gathered at this area before. It is an absolutely stunning area of coastline and these idiots totally spoiled it last night. Thankfully I was on the other side of the river estuary where very few people go.
It would seem that tensions of our current 'release' back into society cannot be adhered to by some.
