If the government restrictions stayed in place?

So until May 2022.

I wouldn't be happy because I miss working but if it was needed then I'd do it.

If it stops myself or my family from dying, yes.

OneOfTheGrundys Wed 13-May-20 12:06:02

Simple answer? Yes. As long as I could continue working.

No way

No, absolutely not

If it stops needless deaths, then yes.

Absolutely not. For that length of time I think that the vulnerable and elderly should be protected, but everyone else (under 65, no significant underlying conditions) would have to work and live.

Where do people draw the line? 3 years? 5 years? 10 years? Forever?

No. It's not going to happen.

BlossomCat Wed 13-May-20 12:08:18

No. Currently furloughed, and my depression is creeping back. Life is all a bit pointless at the moment.

Levatrice Wed 13-May-20 12:08:51

Won’t happen

AlecTrevelyan006 Wed 13-May-20 12:09:15

It’s a no from me

Baaaahhhhh Wed 13-May-20 12:10:59

No. I wouldn't be prepared to sacrifice the younger generation for the old. Sorry, that's just how I feel. Actually, it is also how my elderly relatives feel as well.

No chance. And there’d be no money to pay for the NHS if we did that. More people would die of non covid related illnesses

Utterlydespairing Wed 13-May-20 12:12:32

What about the deaths from lockdown? There will be far more and we need the economy up and running

LilaGrace Wed 13-May-20 12:12:51

No. Definitely not.

Utterlydespairing Wed 13-May-20 12:13:06

And how would we pay for the NHS?

LajesticVantrashell Wed 13-May-20 12:13:07

No. But it's a moot point anyway because it's not going to happen.

OnlyFoolsnMothers Wed 13-May-20 12:13:37

No! There’s little point in living to be locked inside for 2 years- won’t happen though

LisaSimpsonsbff Wed 13-May-20 12:14:22

Absolutely not. I think the effect on my DS, and his whole generation, would be appalling and lifelong. He'd go from 20 months to nearly four - and in theory about to start school - without playing with another child or seeing anyone other than us, and the damage from that would be irreparable.

It's not going to happen, though!
