I hope my viewpoint doesn't offend anyone - it is not intended to and I am very conscious that others do not share my opinion when I am out and about.

Most of us on here Rachel84 are happy to have debate and hear from different points of view as long as everyone remains courteous - you’re certainly entitled to your opinion.

My concerns with further relaxation of restrictions are that in some places (such as Cornwall where I live), NHS services and hospitals are struggling already. They always do in the summer here as our numbers of people increase massively during the tourist season, so even a relatively modest increase in hospitalisations due to Covid will put those services under serious strain.

I also think that if wearing a face covering genuinely does protect those around you, and to some degree yourself, that should continue to be mandatory indoors in public areas for the time being. It seems to me that it’s an easy way to reduce transmission. I would suggest that people working in retail etc could stop wearing them as it must be unpleasant to have to wear them all day, but people using the shop (or other place) should continue to wear them.

They couldn't control the spread of the Delta variant here and as  a result the infection rates are rising by over 50% per week. Our President is addressing the Country this evening to outline his plans in what could be a crucial week to prevent a 4th wave.

A controversial wedding party on Corsica, which had 300 guests and no social barriers, resulted in 50 testing positive; a good example of what could happen if things are further relaxed.

The crowd scenes in London and Rome last night have shocked our medical experts and we all wait to see the results of that behaviour.

We have over 200 cases related to one single dance party, where everyone was supposed to be tested or vaccinated. 
And this wasn’t the only one. Some people got false negative test results, some just cheated with the QR code and used someone else’s.

Increase of cases has risen over 200% last week with some student cities reaching into the 300’s.

All I can say from the Netherlands: don’t relax any rules! It’s not worth it!

Well Boris said he is going ahead and relaxing everything on the 19th. Nightclubs to open, no limits on numbers at gatherings, face coverings no longer a legal requirement….

They just said on the news that France is going to bring in compulsory vaccination for healthcare workers - good move in my opinion

Please don't think you are invincible, just better protected. 3% of people in hospital here have had both jabs. 97% have had one or none.

Cases in France are doubling every week, but it's the young now who are hospitalised as the oldies are generally fully vaccinated. You can't do much here without a health passport for good reason. We still don't feel safe as only 50% have the double dose and despite that they can still be carrying it.
