THE most sensible thing the Govt has done throughout this whole fiasco!
I never thought i'd see the day when i actually agree with something the Tories say!!!!!
Is it? How would you know?
The basic problem is that you and me have no way of knowing how the virus spreads. We only assume the gov does but tbh I suspect even that's not true and they're just making it up as they go along.
One thing that does seem to happen is that when there's an infection in an enclosed space it runs fairly rampantly through all those people in that space - which suggests that if you're going to allow folk to be close to each other then you should expect fairly decent transmission.
So in terms of "sensible" there's simply no way of knowing - unless you're a supporter of simply letting it run rampant through the population.
The government has been inept in its response from day one, but then we deliberately voted in inept politicians so in that respect the problem is entirely ours.
