We all need to do our bit. If people want to walk outside, and government advice based on the latest scientific knowledge is exercising outside if you maintain a 2 metre distance is a reason to leave your home then itís a choice each person makes. That walk might be the difference between them staying calm or losing it with those they are going back to. Seems reasonable to me. Tarafitness was in PR park and people were maintaining a distance which wasnít the case last weekend.
There is more chance of picking up the virus, than the food youíve gone for on Sainsburys from my last visit, admittedly before the latest restrictions were announced. The same cannot be said for those who gather when government advice is no gatherings of more than two or who travel on the tube on non essential travel which are banned. Yes itís serious but we have to be led by government and health advice at the time.
I*Rate Advice and information, for me, needs to be official so I can make an informed choice, maybe not always the right one but thatís democracy. Iíve seen twice now that Southwark has the second highest number of cases in the UK but not where the information is coming from. Iíd expect figures to be higher here than say Westminster - there are more residents. Not to say itís not a worry but could there be media sensationalism at play? The number may be high but whatís that out of. Maybe the number is high but as a percentage of the population say the number might be much lower. Iíve just checked the .gov.uk cases and Southwark is 4th on the list behind Hampshire, Lambeth and Birmingham for number of cases but the percentage of the population is the sam in Lambeth and Southwark.
The BBC cases in your area, based on Public Health England data,shows Southwark 181 cases (0.06%), Lambeth 188 cases (also 0.06%)
