Clare raises a number of issues of concern, such as the risk of a summer 4th wave in COVID cases, and the lack of consideration given to associated deaths, hospitalisation and the impacts of Long COVID, particularly neuro-psychological impacts.
Clare outlines what still should be done to break the COVID chains of transmission in an elimination and minimisation strategy – resourcing public health system to chase the virus, mitigation and ventilation measures in schools and other indoor locations, supporting isolation for those in overcrowded living, or low income or vulnerable, a comprehensive Mandatory Hotel Quarantine.
Clare also discusses the behavioural psychology that appears to be underpinning the Government response such as Optimism Bias, Temporal Dislocation, and the need to listen to the science.
A fascinating insight.
