From our Swindon Correspondent:
Someone pointed out on Question Time that the number of deaths from Covid-19 in the UK was less than the number of people who drowned last year, so maybe, we’re overreacting.
I feel we may be going through that a lot here. Covid-19 is a serious virus, probably worse than a flu in terms of deaths, That’s been a shock to us, and we struggle to process these things. We have a propensity to apply more caution until we know what’s happening. After a while we adapt to the change.
