I know it’s super selfish cuz of lockdown and I shouldn’t but I have to go back to uni soon and I want to see him as much as possible before I go back.

I really miss him, it’s a new relationship as well so we haven’t even kissed yet or anything. He invited me to go round to his, I’m not sure if I should, we both currently live with our parents but we are 20.
Meeting outside is hard because it’s so cold. The thought of not seeing him till March makes me so upset

Meeting outside to exercise is probably your only option to see each other in person - either a walk with lots of layers on or a good energetic run should keep you warm enough. Definitely not ideal, but the best option at the minute.

Not that cold outside. This is the UK, not outer Siberia.

This is exactly how covid spreads. Everyone thinks their one excursion will be ok.

Everyone across the country has to make sacrifices.

Wowwww u give bad advice
1) it’s against the law unless ur doing exercise outdoors
2) she’s also putting her parents at risk; she might be fine but her parents will probably have it pretty bad (they must be middle aged if she’s 20 herself)...

Get a coat on and go for a walk, it is only 2C so a few layers, hats and gloves might be in order.

It's really not that cold, put on a coat and meet outside. It's England not Russia. If you do choose to go his then you are incredibly selfish

*not most, a very small minority (Cummings)
Idk if u watch the news but disobeying the rules can only make the situation worse and put even more pressure on the nhs (as someone who works for the nhs, take it from me that it is bad rn and if anything, the news is underplaying the amount of pressure we’re under now)
U might have been lucky so far with the virus but please follow the rules they’re there for a reason. 💛

That’s so ignorant of u to say

The elderly have struggled as well eg facing even more loneliness. They have family.
Their deaths would impact other people.

The way it’s working is that the highest risk people are being vaccinated first (including frontline workers as well as carers bc of who they with).

Please follow the rules and stop being selfish. 💛

young people have families too and they're more likely to spread the virus in their workplace, schools etc. stop acting like there's any logic in our government's decision. nothing adds up

I’m sorry u feel that way, especially bc I’ve acc really enjoyed lockdown (nonetheless I can’t wait till everything gets back to ‘normal’)

I believe schools are closed rn? Correct me if I’m wrong but only children of key workers etc can go in? And everyone has been told to work from home if possible?

Young people are less likely to suffer from the virus but risk increases with age.
To reduce pressure on the nhs, it makes sense to start with those least at risk bc they’re most likely to need intensive care (unfortunately the virus has wreaked havoc despite shielding).
Furthermore, the elderly are (on average) less able to take advantage of the internet, further increasing their isolation from society.

Please follow the rules! 💛

they were open like throughout november. and tons of people can't work from home.
you sound brainwashed af. 'the elderly' are still isolated from society, even after getting the vaccine so we should focus on those who are most likely to spread the virus

I work in the nhs so I have seen firsthand the effects of the virus.
The new strain was identified to be 70% more transmissible in December I believe; it was not prominent before.

The increased transmissibility means that children are now much more likely to spread it (whereas previously this was not the case).
Furthermore, isn’t the fact that we had a period of relaxation an example of young people being prioritised for once?
