Will they, won’t they?

Tier 3 or 4. Will it be Tier 5?

Will they vaccinate ALL nurses, doctors, teachers and keyworkers or not?

Will they introduce testing at airports for international flights or not? Will they cancel international travel?

Will they act in a manner that inspires trust or mistrust?

Will they act in their own best interest or in the interest for the whole population?

Will we get through this?

These are just some of the questions that keep me awake and scared, keeping me on edge and fearing for my families health and safety. I’m sure you’re the same, you have similar fears about the current crisis, about your own health and that of your loved ones. It’s not the questions that really bother me or even the answers, it’s the constant pressure of not knowing if or when the decisions will follow sense and the science – with the continued rise in cases and deaths to previously unseen levels, why is it taking so long to do what everyone can see is the right thing. When governments around the world, with fewer cases and deaths, are doing what we’re calling for, why is the UK so slow to respond?

THIS is the stress parents, carers, workers, children, etc. are living with daily – the uncertainty of if or when a change will come and will it be enough to prevent our loved ones from dying unnecessarily?

We will emerge from this, even if we don’t know when and don’t know in what state. Or even how many of us will be left. Take care of yourself and those around you.
