Its all about balance isn't it? One way or another people are going to die. The way its been handled at the moment means that the problem is being shifted into the future. If you think the NHS is underfunded now, wait to see what happens post Covid. There will be much less money to invest in the NHS, fewer new drugs and treatments and less research. As a result, people will die. People are already dying as a result of lockdown - suicide rates are on the rise and that's before the latest lockdown was announced. That too is only going to get worse in a month's time when the furlough scheme ends and whole swathes of people are made redundant.
Then there's the long term effect of this year. My kids and grandkids are going to be paying off the debt incurred, which currently amounts to £60,000 per tax payer for the next 20 to 30 years. It's them and their generation I feel really sorry for, their health, wealth and happiness blighted for years to come.
