"Freedom Friday" or Waiting for the Second Wave?

The PM is talking “open for business” and “back to normal."

NSW is easing COVID-19 restrictions.

The news is reporting “Freedom Friday."

The caveat from the Premier is to think and act as if you and everyone else has the virus. Yet people out there are largely acting as if there is no further threat. Barely a mask in sight. Physical distancing a fading memory.

If someone thinks they have COVID19...

Firstly, they shouldn’t be going out. Certainly not taking public transport. And certainly not without a mask.

It just doesn’t make sense.

My medical colleagues are genuinely anxious about the prospect the second wave if and when it comes, which seems inevitable.
