If you follow the advice we've all been told about a billion times that shouldn't be happening - it's as simple as that.
I‘m a-symptomatic and go to see my parents for a meal at a restaurant, no face masks, limited social distancing - they catch it.
Which government rules have I broken there?
Depends on who is in who's bubble -https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-52637354
BUT that is very much different than what is happening and hence causing the spread in the areas put in 'lockdown' today - put very simply one household bubble can form part of a mutual bubble with another household - but that's it.
What's happened is that multiple people are visiting friends and relatives from multiple households - and clearly not following the rules (listed below) otherwise they shouldn't be getting infected - it's as simple as that!
1. Keep your distance from people outside your household or support bubble
Whilst recognising this will not always be possible, it is important to be aware that the risk of infection increases the closer you are to another person with the virus, and the amount of time you spend in close contact with them. Therefore, you are unlikely to be infected if you walk past another person in the street.
The government recommends that you keep two metres away from people as a precaution or one metre when you can mitigate the risk by taking other precautions in this list.
2. Avoid being face-to-face with people if they are outside your household or support bubble
You are at higher risk of being directly exposed to respiratory droplets (released by talking or coughing) when you are within two metres of someone and have face-to-face contact with them. You can lower the risk of infection if you stay side-to-side rather than facing someone. The key thing is not to be too close to people outside your household or support bubble. If you must, keep it as brief as possible.https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/staying-safe-outside-your-home/staying-safe-outside-your-home
1.3 What should I still avoid doing?
It remains the case that you should not:
- socialise indoors in groups of more than two households (anyone in your support bubble counts as one household) – this includes when dining out or going to the pub
- socialise outdoors in a group of more than six people from different households; gatherings larger than six should only take place if everyone is from exclusively from two households or support bubbles
- interact socially with anyone outside the group you are attending a place with, even if you see other people you know, for example, in a restaurant, community centre or place of worship
- hold or attend celebrations (such as parties) where it is difficult to maintain social distancing and avoid close social interaction – even if they are organised by businesses and venues that are taking steps to follow COVID-19 Secure guidelines
- stay overnight away from your home with members of more than one other household (your support bubble counts as one household)https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do/coronavirus-outbreak-faqs-what-you-can-and-cant-do
As I keep saying, I know people aren't infecting others deliberately, they just aren't observing the rules for the 'new normal' and they are living and circulating in a community where there is much social interaction.
It's really not hard to understand what's happened and why, if the boot was on the other foot and 'white' people lived with multi-generations in large family groups under one roof and were socially active in their community with everyone else who were doing the similar - then exactly the same would happen!
It's not a question of religion or skin colour per se, it's a question of people in such communities and with so much social interaction and living large family's that include vulnerable people in them simply not following social distancing advise.
I guess it has to be a learning experience for all of us rather than some hidden racist agenda that some seem to be implying.
