    Indeed - will this ever end?

    I hope to God that Nottingham doesn't get so bad that the city will be next for lockdown.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    The truth is the the young people don’t care about is older ones .. .. it may hit home when they start losing their parents and grandparents but even then they will be in denial and blame everyone else apart from themselves ..

    I feel sorry for the real old folk who fought or suffered during the war to give these very same youngsters a better life ..

    They must feel so very , very disappointed

    I asked the first assistant we saw about all the non mask wearers he said they will only conform if they get fined ... I asked another assistant ten minutes later who said ‘ it’s up to the police to make them comply” ...

    What is wrong with this damn country !!

    The latest stats show that the vast majority of the new cases are under 30 though ..

    They are simply not being responsible

    Sadly I think it will take an armed forces intervention to make the younger generation tow the line for the sake of everyone else

    I feel ( and surveys/ stats show ) that it’s the under 30’s who are ‘driving’ this new frightening new wave ..


    A spike in young people getting COVID-19 will result in more older people being admitted to hospital with the virus, scientists have warned.

    Dr Adam Kucharski, infectious disease epidemiologist at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said it could be just a few weeks until the UK sees an increase in older people being admitted to hospital after the spike in young people testing positive.

    He told Sky News: "We've seen lots of changes in behaviours recently, more people are gathering now and in younger groups especially, more people are happy to gather."


    Over the summer, cases have risen faster in younger groups than any other, with cases tripling in the 20-29 age group at the end of August compared to the first week of July - when it reached its lowest point.


    England's deputy chief medical officer, Jonathan Van-Tam, has warned there has been a marked rise in cases in the 17-21 age group and urged people to "re-engage and realise that this is a continuing threat to us".

    The latest Public Health England (PHE) data found the 20-29 age group now has the highest coronavirus infection rate, with 28 people infected per 100,000 people in England in the week ending 30 August.
