I have been saying since the UK originally locked down, that it was never going to be 3 weeks, it was more likely it was going to be extended for at least another 3 and there is no way Monkey was going to go back to school till at least after the May Half term and that certainly looks like what is happening.
They announced today they were extended for at least 3 more weeks, without a deadline in sight.
I think people are now starting to panic a wee bit about how they are going to cope financially, if the business they worked for is going to survive or what they are now going to do.
The thing is I don’t think the Government can give a date as to when this is going to end (BBC I am looking at you with your first question being when is it going to end) I get its going to be tough for so many people and very uncertain, but this approach seems to be working a whole of a lot better than the herd immunity suggestion they originally came up with.
I know its easy for me to say, this is going to all work out, but the thing is, its such an unusual time, the government are going to have to step in to continue to help those people who are struggling because they are unable to work because the business they worked for 3 weeks ago is no longer operating.
I am not sure of the answer, but there does need to have something in place for this unusual time.
