A lot of people have no idea how they are going to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads for their family
People are scared stiff but having to use public transport to get to their hourly paid job(s)
A lot of people are waking up depressed, with spouses and children in tears and despair every day
A lot of new parents are suffering with crushing post natal depression and child development has been massively compromised
Long term relationships and marriages have terminally broken down
Challenged children and teenagers are spiralling down behind peers in education and development
These are all people I know personally. Labelling everyone who is trying to navigate this mess as some of kind of hedonistic selfish ‘you will kill people’ type is IMHO hugely wrong. Moreover, it will prove fatally ineffective in actually tackling things.
