COMPARED to during first lockdown, have many others noted just how few people now sanitize their hands when entering shops, especially supermarkets. The sanitizer stations are now often woefully neglected with no gel in the dispensers, and, once inside, there seems to be carefree shopping with little or no social distancing.

Hey ho, no wonder we are where we are. It is not the Government’s fault we don’t follow the guidelines.
