PETITION: END THE COVID-19 LOCKDOWN NOW

April 10, 2020 9 comments

IMG_5609In the eyes of the Media, speaking up against the continuation of the COVID-19 Lockdown is far from being a popular choice. But it has to be done.

NOTHING THE GOVERNMENT CAN DO IS GOING TO STOP PEOPLE DYING FROM CORONAVIRUS until there is a tried, tested and working Vaccine that has been given to EVERYONE.

This is not going to happen in 3 weeks or even 3 months. If we are lucky, a Vaccine MIGHT be ready for production in 6 Months. Estimates suggest it’s likely that a Vaccine will NOT be ready for use for 18 Months.

18 Months is too long for the Country to be held at a standstill during a full Lockdown.

We already know that:

  • Job Losses
  • Lay offs
  • Businesses closures
  • Debt
  • Depression
  • Mental Health Issues
  • Domestic Violence
  • Abuse & Safeguarding Issues
  • Bankruptcies
  • Administrations
  • Suicides

– are ALL rising as a direct result of the UK being in Lockdown.

This so far hidden crisis being played out behind closed doors in people’s kitchens and lounges across the Country today will very soon break out into the open.

It’s going to hurt ALL of us. And its going to hurt all of us a lot more as a Country than Coronavirus ever could.

The Government needs to prioritise the effects of COVID-19 on Everyone. Not just those who are critically ill or at risk of losing their life to this horrid illness.

It is vital that the Government ensures that those left alive are left with lives to live.

The only way this growing crisis can be stopped and the damage limited to the minimum that it can be is to begin to END THE LOCKDOWN NOW.

There are better alternatives to the approach that the Government is taking. It is essential that they immediately stop allowing Medical and Scientific Advisors to lead the Government Response to this National Crisis by considering it only to be a medical one.

Please SIGN and then SHARE the Petition to END THE LOCKDOWN NOW on Change.org  so that we can make our Politicians aware that its time to respond to the COVID-19 Crisis by making choices that are helpful for EVERYONE and not just some.
