At current levels of some 45,000 – 50,000 daily Covid cases, many of our friends, neighbours and fellow citizens could die from Covid or be seriously ill and require hospital treatment.

We may not be able to economically afford to enter another lockdown, but would it be too much of a sacrifice to wear face masks, observe social distancing and work from home where possible to save lives?

Our government uses the rhetoric “learning to live with Covid”; in reality, we are simply learning to die with Covid.
