Where I live people have been out washing cars in the road, kids playing football and treating the crisis as a holiday?

Update:

Shouldn't the government and Police be more concerned about this than a little old lady going shopping, or walking her dog?.

    You can wash your car without infecting others. You can walk the dog a short way  too. You can shop for essentials. If the kids are siblings in the same family playing in their bubble that's OK. Today someone verbally attacked and swore repeatedly at a mother, father and their three teenage boys for walking as adults in a group too close to each other and was calling them the C word but they were a family walking in their "bubble."

    That is good. Those can help us to better manage our emotion in such a pandemic situation.

    Don't worry too much. For the survived, they will have better immunity for the coming pandemic.

    The "crisis" should be treated as a holiday. The government is shutting down the country over a cold, it's a joke.

      Donnie the virus spreads 20 times faster than the flu it spreads so very very quickly that hospital systems could be overwhelmed by people unable to treat them if this isn't stamped out by lockdowns.

    You can wash your car without infecting others. You can walk the dog quite legitimately too. You can shop for essentials. (Playing football is unwise unless they are siblings from the same household.) The Government is more bothered about mass gatherings. It is about achieving an outcome rather than people getting officious to no real purpose - and that is to avoid the cases that need hospitalisation from exceeding the extended capacity of the NHS.

    That’s British arrogance for you. As for police doing more, what police? They’ve been cut. They have little resources to deal with dangerous criminals let alone anything else.
