Then yesterday we jump to complaining about people without symptoms (will peopld with symptoms be up for a walk) getting out for a walk and potentially brushing past each other. If you walk along grafton street or college green you will walk past people within a few feet. Same thing in the aisle of your supermarket.
Are people just pushing for a complete lockdown at this stage. How much of this is driven by twitter experts rather than scientific evidence I wonder.
First person sneezes on their hand . Sure it's grand I'm out in the open. Climbs over a gate or fence or hand rail.
Next ten people touch that getting over same obstacles.
Ten people infected.
It's really not rocket science all this 15 minutes company stuff is nonsense I've no idea how that came about but all it takes is someone to be talking to you with a bit of a spitty sentence and you have your eyes open to get hit with this thing.
People are clueless. Simple as that.
