What do you think about the similar “new” travel restriction in U.K.? Too little, too much, or like Goldilocks, or just right? Testing is good, but would that be sufficient right now? https://youtu.be/8tiK-Vi5fls
Without a vaccine or cure, the world is going to have to continue dealing with this virus. I think all we're doing is prolonging the inevitable. We are going to have to deal with this. Unfortunately, this is like playing Russian roulette. Is wearing masks and shields and social distancing forever?
Government now seem to be focusing more on control than true medical protection. Here in Thailand, people ignore scanning and signing in, which I understand and see as a major hassle if done long term and what's the point of engaging in an honor system if people aren't honorable?
Testing is great, but if there's no vaccine or cure, what's the reasoning behind doing so? The percentage of those being tested is extremely small in most countries, so for sure there are large numbers of infected people walking around.
Obviously the vulnerable need to be cautious in their interactions with others. How about all the places with large populations who have next to no cases? Should they remain locked down? Is it necessary? And what's worse, a medical issue such as this virus or an unemployment crisis where people are unable to feed their families without the support of the government?
