Not especially, but I think the pandemic is at a low enough level to begin living life again, even if it will be different. I know I'll be the first in the pub when they re-open. Really hoping the government hasn't forgot about the biggest health pandemic whilst this is happening, and that's the fact that the biggest cause of death in men aged 25-50 is suicide. That should be thier main focus after this is over in my opinion.
Just out of interest, how did everyone get on with covid, assuming most people had it. My only two symptoms were change/loss of smell/taste. 10 weeks ish later, my taste is starting to come back, but comes and goes. Smell, well I can only smell certain things, thankfully I can't smell bad things which is a blessing. Some of my friends, it took a year for thier taste to come back.
I kindly declined the vaccines, as I'm considered an extremely low risk group, I'd rather mine be used as a booster for those that need it. Plus, the vaccines hide the symptoms, I probably would have passed the virus on to several vulnerable family members as I had no symptoms besides those mentioned above. Unfortunately this has happened to many of my friends who arrogantly thought they were invincible after both jabs. One of which passed it on to both elderly parents and several colleagues too. Luckily they were all ok.
I haven't caught it either yet, or if I did I didn't notice. I picked up both my vaccines as soon as they were available. They are talking about boosters now, but I'm starting to doubt the experts. I know this is a new thing, but in the beginning they were saying one thing and now they are saying something different. I also hate how society / media talks and treats the anti waxxers, like we supposed to blame them if there is an outbrake or if there is a point the doctors want to make. In the beginning they told us that 75% of the population had to be vaccinated, since that didn't work there had to be someone to blame.
Yea we are getting a hard a time, like you say, people are desperate to blame someone, they blame us. It was a double jabbed person that passed the virus to me, I don't feel hate towards them, that's just how it goes. Alot more of my friends/people I know got covid after the jabs, although that coincides with lifted restrictions. Only 28% of those in hospital with covid are unvaccinated so it's not quite the miracle cure they were hoping for. I'd encourage anyone to get it if they want it, but I'd also ask people to respect the freewill and lifestyle choices of others.
That's all Care Home staff required to be vaccinated now, in the UK, or they cannot work in the industry. Frontline NHS staff in England will soon be the same.
Austria is looking at bringing in Lockdown for non-vaccinated members of the population.

It disgusts me to think it's turned to blackmail, especially on our heros that have risked their lives to save others throughout the pandemic. People in that industry are tested daily regardless of vaccination status.
On the plus side, house prices are set to increase further in Wales as those loosing jobs are forced to move over the border into a country that has more respect for personal choice.
