Yes, Boris. Vigilance is ESSENTIAL when combating a virus that has a 14 day period where it is transmissible without symptoms.

Keep Calm And Carry On just won't work this time.

Isn't it interesting how all the would-be authoritarians want to watch this virus burn through society as thoroughly as possible? Trump, Putin, Bolsanaro, Johnson--they have all taken the "Well, crisis over, back to it." position.

It's been herd immunity from the start, only the messaging has changed. First we "prepare to lose loved ones", then it's all about war and the "blitz spirit", now it's "you only have yourselves to blame". The messaging has got more confusing on purpose, make no mistake about that. They want herd immunity as quickly as possible to get the economy back running before Europe does.

Oh, it's quite deliberate. Previously it was red for stop and now it's green for go.
