Covid19 Lockdown protesters:- "selfish and irresponsible"

A dispersal zone in the City Centre and South Liverpool, ahead a protest that has seen 16 people had been arrested. The vast majority of people on Merseyside and within the Liverpool City Region have been abiding by lockdown rules and also huge waves of people have also got tested, order to help curb the spread of Coronavirus. Sadly this has all been put into jeopardy by a few hundred people. We have had unofficially confirmed reports that many who descended on 2 location within the City, despite the rules banning the protest. Those attending the protest marches within the City Centre, in opposition to lockdown, have been called by Merseyside Police as:- "selfish and irresponsible." This has also been wildly repeated by people all over social media, angry that the area's efforts to cut the infection rate have been possibly damaged, as well as the areas reputation. In a statement, Merseyside Police said:- "We continue to thank the vast majority of people who are abiding by the lockdown rules and continuing to say at home to keep us all safe. Unfortunately a small number of selfish and irresponsible individuals have chosen to gather in the City Centre today, putting themselves, their families, the public and our staff at risk from the Global Pandemic. We have, so far, made 16 arrests for public order breaches of Coronavirus regulations. We would like to remind people that there is currently a dispersal zone in Liverpool City Centre and parts of Liverpool. The order, which h was brought in following a gathering last weekend, which was in contravention of Coronavirus legislation, has been authorised in order to protect lives, prevent the spread of Coronavirus and keep people safe. Liverpool is now in the second week of a mass testing scheme in a bid to combat Coronavirus and most people are choosing to do the responsible thing in order to protect themselves, their families and friends."
