Stay Alert... Control the Virus... Save Lives?

THE longstanding official UK guidance to:- "stay at home, save lives, protect the NHS" will be amended to:- "stay alert, control the virus, save lives." Now according to Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, the UK's Government guidance is now:-

Stay at home as much as possible.

Work at home if you can.

Limit contact with other people.

Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)

Wash your hands regularly.

Given the critical point we are at in tackling the virus, many are questioning what many say is an "absurdity silly" new slogan for the next phase in the UK's fight against Coronavirus. The new slogan has already led to more people flouting the Government's Covid-19 lockdown rules, with people flocking to the seaside on Bank Holiday Saturday. Also, Scotland's 1st Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she will refuse to switch from "stay home" slogan immediately to the new slogan as a result.

Boris Johnson's new message is meant to make us all remember to:- "be alert to the continuing danger of Coronavirus," but it has left the public very confused... Sadly, the battle might have been won so far, but in reality the war is far from being over.

Businesses already have said that this has already been widely ridicule and pointed out that it doesn't say what should happen if you are in a shielded category or if you are a single parent with a child or children, yet expected to go back to work. May are not classed as key workers, so will not be able to get school places and can't get help with child care.

Responding to Prime Minister Boris Johnson's address on the road map for reopening society, Cllr James Jamieson, Chairman of the Local Government Association, said:- "It is encouraging that we are now moving into the next phase of tackling this virus and we look forward to seeing more details on the Government's plan. During this pandemic, Councils' role as leaders of place has been more important than ever before. They will continue to lead their communities through this crisis as we adapt to this new way of life, working day and night to protect the most vulnerable, help local businesses, keep important services running and support national efforts to defeat this disease. The scale of the economic, environmental and community challenges that we will face cannot be under estimated. Communities will need to keep sticking together through this crisis and follow the Government's plan and social distancing rules to ensure people are not put at risk unnecessarily."
