But I am worried for my Mum (85) and for kids I know of locally who have underlying conditions such as asthma. And others treating this casually and not minding whether they are carrying it from one household to another is a threat to them. It is a threat to those who are weaker.
In my work I often come close to the old and the vulnerable, and in recent weeks I have been doing my best to keep them at a distance, even when they seem not to care, because I am a threat to them. Somehow we have to protect these people until a vaccine is available.
Has anyone noticed when in a supermarket it seems to be mostly the old who are not obeying the SD guidelines?
There does seem to be a problem with some (not all) very old people being unaware of how close they get to others.
I seem to be encountering pairs of people in supermarkets and on narrow lanes who don't seem realise that the aisle/lane isn't much more than a couple of metres wide but is tens if not hundreds of metres long. When I approach them they each move to the opposite side for me to pass between them.
