My last few blog post shave felt unremittingly gloomy. So I thought I’d post something upbeat for a change. I have previously pointed out that lifting lockdown measures is unlikely to lead to a full economic recovery whilst a significant Covid risk remains. A large portion of society will (rightly) feel that social interaction and close contact remains unsafe. Moreover, many of the recommended mitigations for household visits are either impossible or extremely uncomfortable. It’s difficult to remain over 1 metre away from people when visiting someone in their home, and most of us feel a degree of discomfort at having to wear a mask around close family members every time we visit them. I can well imagine that such advice will be widely flouted.
