I wouldn't be surprised if masks and another booster/vaccination are on the cards from October through to Easter in Scotland regardless whether there is any COVID variant doing the rounds or not.

Little woried they will even try and bring back restrictions later this year.

Given compliance with mask wearing largely evaporated up here before the mandate was finally lifted I'd be surprised if that happened tbh.

I don't know about anywhere else but in Inverness it did a little bit but the majority of people I saw in town wore them in enclosed spaces like indoors or in a taxi right up until it was lifted. it roughly varied between 90% and 80% compliance. Places like dentists and opticians still ask you to wear a mask upon entering.

We've nearly all been posting similar comments since it was lifted in England and Wales to share the comparison. I remember someone posting something about being on on a train crossing from Scotland to England and one of the staff over the speaker announced we have crossed the border and are now in England and mentioned that you can now take your masks off. Which the majority did. It was if COVID-19 stopped at the border.

The MSM might go into scaremongering mode more like, but really the SG if they care so much about people's health and well being they should be focusing on that especially mental health instead of thinking of their own personal legacies in pushing for IR2.

The amount of damage done, last week it was about keeping families apart including with the care homes where it has been said that many elderly gave up on life because their families stopped coming to see them and they were shut in their rooms and didn't understand why.

Best of luck to any clown government that even considers a return to pointless restrictions* at some point in future, let alone actually goes through with reintroducing them, during this latest economic crisis - the major cause of which is erm... two years of covid hysteria.

*sorry, 'protections' 🥴

I personally just can't see it for this reason, even up here. No doubt there will be some mewling and pondering in the media, perhaps even some tinkering in the countries with more of a psycho record, but it's really just not a good look anymore. It's definitely a reminder that there needs to be pushback as we enter this coming winter.

All governments should now be in no doubt about the long term price of years of restrictions over things like covid.

Job losses.

Almost impossible to get staff back into the office again.

Endless calls for strikes.

Rampant inflation.

Interest rates starting to increase rapidly.

Hundreds of thousands now left the workplace permanently.

Countless shops closed.

Town centres decimated.

Public services on its knees as staff take almost any excuse not to get back to normal.

I said before it would take about a decade to recover from all of this and I'm more convinced by the day that I have under-estimated.

Between Brexit, over-reacting on covid and the war in Ukraine, those 3 entirely man-made problems have left us in the shit with Sturgeon and Boris in charge of fixing things. Doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

Yup. All three are key reasons, though I believe Brexit is the most minor of them when you consider what is happening on the continent as well. Not that it makes me loathe Brexit any less. The response to covid in 2020 and 2021, to then be clobbered by the war in Ukraine in 2022, is simply a nightmare mix.

Like I said, seeing the carnage that will be ongoing in Ukraine on the tele as many folk toil to make ends meet is simply not a good look for any oddballs even considering fucking around with people's lives again, having been back to normal since around Easter time.

The Germans have already looked weak over the Ukraine crisis, but not to worry, they're contemplating making punters wear pointless masks to try and stop some old people from passing away in winter, and also to stop some younger folk from getting the sniffles. 🥴 It's like unavoidable facts of the human experience such as death from natural causes and minor illness during winter is morally unacceptable now because of ole rona! 🥴

I know someone who works with Test and Protect and they are barely working at all at the moment but they have been told they will be full time again in Sept so this might not be far off the truth.

Would agree about Brexit.

The problem with all of this is that when governments across the continent don't get their shit together (and they seem incapable of doing so), voters will start to gravitate towards extreme left and right wing politicians - neither of whom would do the country any good whatsoever.

Looks like that's exactly what is happening in France for example and other countries are seeing this too. Austria, Scandinavia, the US (with Trump) and Germany leap to mind immediately.

T&P is utterly pointless without free testing.

Both would be a colossal waste of money.

More folk in hospital with covid than this time last year and another large wave beginning.

The vaccines haven’t got us to herd immunity as we were told they would

Indeed, it looks to me like the vaccines have fucked the immune systems of the population. 
 

Lockdowns and vaccines have been a disaster, killing millions

Fairly sure there's only about eight folk in ICU across the whole of Scotland with ole covid. Absolutely risible.

Is every punter that goes into hospital still tested? Surely not? If so, this will only continue to skew the admissions figures, the vast majority of which have been incidental ever since shanicron arrived on the scene.

Herd immunity went out the window when it was obvious that there was little retained long term immunity. It was pointed out pre vaccine that it might not ever happen.
It's got nothing to do with the vaccine.

The dismantled all the test center's at the end of may did they not? there'll probably be a bit of surveillance next winter but i can't see a return to any widespread interference in life. i also don't think the gerrys will go ahead with their winter mask rule

We can probably do without various NHS gobshites like Jillian Evans mouthing off every time there’s a rise in cases, which we’ve seen is absolutely to be expected and in line with all of the epidemiological waves we’ve seen so far.
