The UK faces an unquestionably difficult winter and must summon discipline, resolve and a spirit of togetherness to get through the coronavirus pandemic. There have been too many breaches of the rules, which are leading to a surge in coronavirus infections, resulting in new restrictions to try to peg things back. The country is walking a fine line - some are unhappy at the prospect of restrictions continuing for another six months, while some scientists question whether the new measures go far enough. The public is tiring of the battle against coronavirus. With hospital admissions and deaths still low, there's a window of opportunity before more difficult action has to be taken. However, it's likely that infections will continue to rise and those choices will become more unavoidable. At that point, it will come down to how far further restrictions are imposed towards another full lockdown. It is, therefore, down to each and every one of us to stick together and continue to help each other over the coming weeks and months. It's a tough ask but a necessary one if we are to remain positive and get through the Autumn and Winter months. We all have to keep to the rules and guidelines we have been asked to abide by.
There's only so many films anyone can watch on Netflix - there's only so much sport you can watch in your own home - there comes a time when the best of us tire from cooking every day, we all love to have a meal out where someone else does the cooking and washing up. Unfortunately, we have to face reality and accept that's how it's going to be for the next six months or so. So, be kind, be understanding and helpful to each other and your friends, neighbours and members of your community.
REMEMBER - WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER and WITH BRITISH BULLDOG SPIRIT WE CAN GET THROUGH IT TOGETHER.
