We have the same issue over here in Wales, well all of the UK in fact.
The sooner everyone realises that their behaviour and how they conduct themselves has a direct affect on how long this virus will have such a mass effect on us all, the better.
How many of these people who are of the 'I'm not being told what I can and can't do, where I can and can't go', we're happy enough to accept the furlough payment, yet bitch if there's any talk of job loss, or even their employer closing down. Do they not realise that each time they go to their mates for a night of drinking with a hand full of other mates, they're just prolonging economic recovery?
I had to go shopping yesterday for a couple of bits and in the superstore (Tesco), I saw 4 lads walking around the soft drinks isle. I overheard them talking about getting mixers, then they went down the alcohol isle and picked up half a dozen slabs of cans of beer and some spirits. When I got to the checkout, I was told I couldn't buy two packs of toilet roll, even though I explained one was for my parents as I was shopping for them too and the other for us. Those 4 lads were at the checkout beside me, all 4 went through together, not each paying for some of their drinks so it didn't look like for a party.
It was blatantly obvious, yet nothing was said.
I don't know about other countries, but the UK is far too soft.
Frustrates the hell outta me.
Apologies for the rant 😔
