“We need to get numbers right down” – A Star Reader’s letter about overseas holidays in 2021
Sue shares her thoughts on the prospects of Brits going on holiday this year, and also emphasises where our collective focus really should be right now.
Quite frankly, considering the large numbers of people who have lost their jobs and/or businesses during the last year and are now unemployed, it seems both insensitive and selfish to be so concerned with wanting to get abroad as soon as we can.
And although we’re having an effective vaccine rollout, there are no guarantees that what happened last summer when restrictions were eased too quickly, that we won’t find ourselves with yet another surge in cases to contend with.
We need to get numbers right down - zero tolerance as Independent Sage advised last summer and have the majority of the population vaccinated before holidays and travel is allowed. Let’s hope the Government has finally learned its lessons, but I doubt it looking at the delay in border controls.
