Getting their excuses in early… May 3, 2021

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Some telling framing going on here – this in an Irish Times piece on the ‘reopening’ taking place now and into the medium term with respect to the pandemic.

The mood in Government on how the coming weeks will play out was last night described as “nervous”.

One senior source said “we’re placing faith” in Nphet, which has “been on the cautious side of right on most things”.

And if numbers spike up? Well, presumably Nphet will have to take the heat. 

In his letter, chief medical officer Dr Tony Holohan also warned people are “gradually pushing the boundaries” of public health measures, with compliance at its lowest level since last summer “with a particularly steep fall in recent weeks”.

The problem is that there appears to be an effect of some becoming less cautious in advance of restrictions being lifted, and once they are lifted they become less compliant with the remaining restrictions. 

It’s going to be a bumpy ride for the next number of months.
