Yesterday, in the UK alone, COVID-19 took the lives equivalent to TEN Hillsborough disasters.
In the last 48 hours, the death toll from COVID-19 has been higher than the number of souls who perished on the Titanic disaster.
Around the world, 90,100 people have died after contracting COVID-19. And that number is rising. Daily.
And yet, some sections of the mainstream media keep asking when the lockdown is going to end.
But it was the lack of lockdown in the first place that has led to many of the deaths which we see in hospitals around the country.
Everyone is getting bored with the lockdown.
But we aren’t being told to stay indoors because we are expecting some crappy weather. We are being told to stay indoors, to HELP SAVE PEOPLES LIVES.
We are being told to stay indoors, to help save the NHS. Medical staff are working 16-hour shifts treating people who would do anything they could to swap places with the individuals who are moaning about having to stay indoors with their families.
Would you rather stay indoors, or would you rather be in a bed in intensive care, fighting for your life?
It really is that simple. The virus is still out there. It is always looking for hosts. It wants you to go outside because it needs you to continue its rampage of death.
It cannot kill more people without your help.
The only way of stopping COVID-19 is to prevent its transmission from person to person.
If you want more people to die, then head outside and mingle with your family and friends.
If you want COVID-19 to stop its murderous campaign, then the message is clear: stay indoors and stop inviting your family and friends round to your house.
COVID-19 has an incubation period that can last up to 14-days. And then it can take up to 14 days for the virus to destroy your lungs and end your life.
That is why we are still in lockdown.
And the longer people ignore the rules, the longer the lockdown will last. This ladies and gentlemen is your chance to save lives…By merely staying indoors and NOT inviting your friends and family over.
If you find yourself starting to lose the willpower needed to stay indoors, then just read some of the tragic stories which are being shared in a group that has thousands of NHS workers in it: Emergency Services News | Community.
After you have read some of the stories which are being shared in this public group, maybe then you will realise that what you are being asked to do pales in insignificance when compared to what NHS staff in intensive care units are having to do daily.
Right now, people who are in intensive care are fighting for every single breath, not knowing if it will be their last.
And you are being asked to stay in YOUR home.
NHS Staff have to live in huts so as not to infect their families.
And yet we seem not to be able to stay in our houses/flats as a mark of respect to the men and women who do not get the luxury of staying indoors with their loved ones.
I guarantee you that every single person who died on their own in a hospital bed surrounded by doctors and nurses in full PPE would have done anything to swap places with you.
And instead of asking “when will the lockdown end” why not instead ask “when will the deaths end” because the answer to the latter, is in the former.
Stay indoors. Save lives. Save the NHS.
