I regret to report that after the initial surge of compliance, I now see fewer masks on Sydenham Road and on my last trip to Lidl there were 4 unmasked customers. :-(

Complacency has set In

Re: Masks

Unless you are wearing a special medical grade mask, then masks and face coverings do not offer any significant protection to the wearer. They DO significantly reduce the risk that you transmit the virus to others, and thus help break the chain of infection. Maybe, maybe not. But given that there a...

Re: Masks

Hi all, it’s great to know that people are taking mask wearing seriously as 123 people died in England yesterday. The rest of the uk had no deaths so it’s clear something is seriously wrong here. I am still in lockdown nothing this govt has done has given me confidence to change my behaviour.

Re: Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

I obtained the figures for Lewisham from the BBC web site. You simply enter the name of your borough and the stats come up. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51768274 I agree that it has been difficult trying to work out the real figures, as you have ONS, NHS and Public Health England providing often c...

Re: Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

The number of new cases reported in the borough of Lewisham for the week of 29 June - July 5 was just 3. It's a similar story in Bromley and Southwark. Of course, the virus is still around, so we all need to maintain social distancing, wash our hands, and wear face coverings on public transport. Bu...

Re: Lockdown Easement: WHO warn the worst is yet to come

Hey all, well it seems like the 2nd wave will be brutal as nothing has changed since lockdown and masks are not mandatory in public. 148 real people with friends and family died a horrible death yesterday but my neighbours had a massive party. The numbers are going back up but many think it’s over. I

Re: Masks

I foolishly went to collect a parcel on my doorstep without my mask and there were people chitchatting as if there is no pandemic. No mask, no social distancing the lockdown worked so well no believes the risk is real. I hope they’re right and I’m wrong As every scenario in my head says August will ...

Re: Royal Mail to stop Saturday deliveries

It has been announced that Royal Mail are to make 2,000 people redundant. Despite actions earlier this month to dispense with the services of their oft-times absent CEO, the rationalisation plans proceed apace. Regrettably it happens under the cover of the pandemic crisis. Are these redundancies re...

Re: Local public transport and face coverings

I guess that must be it. I wonder why anyone thinks it's over? Wait for the infections to start rising again ... And, two days ago, on a 358, I was the only one out of 7 actually wearing a face covering. I haven't got used to checking for more than simply the number of passengers before I get on a ...

I think this Thursday’s clap may be the last one. I am sure I read it somewhere.

Re: Local public transport and face coverings

I got on a 227 bus earlier today: we ended up with perhaps 15 people on the bus, and maybe only 1/5 of those actually wearing face coverings of any sort. To add insult to injury, they weren't optimally spread out, either, which made social distancing of any sort very difficult. Based on my observat...

Re: Social distancing on the High Road

Hi all, the lockdown worked so well some people think the pandemic is over. The traffic and people outside my home on Friday and yesterday was quite shocking and not one mask. It’s not the flu it’s more like airborne HIV and there is no guarantee of immunity as there are 3 distinct mutations. There...

Re: The 8pm NHS celebration

My wife Mary and I have been out on the High Street each Thursday evening to bang saucepan lids. Last week we noticed that the response was more muted. Far fewer cars sounded their horns and waved. The movement may be running down. The week before last I head bin lids being banged and it was more l...

Re: Masks

If you are buying masks, please have a look on Etsy. There are a lot of home sewers diverting their small businesses from making other textiles to producing masks. Worth supporting, IMO. I have bought several cotton and linen masks from different sellers on Etsy and they’ve all been great. Have at ...

Re: Masks

I ordered some from Amazon to wear. I shop for my 70 year old diabetic mother, so it was important to me to not catch nor pass on anything.. whilst they may not be 100% I feel I am doing all I can. As more people go back to work, the likelyhood of infection rising again seemed viable, so getting so...

Re: Masks

It’s crazy that more people aren’t wearing facial barriers. There are so many more people out and about now- clearly the combination of Johnson’s recent statements and good weather are having an effect. Lots of people clearly breaking rules and hanging out with their mates. All the more reason to w...
