I’m glad I was warned. I could see his feet do a little tap dance as he passed by.

Covid-19 precautions in a Dunnes Stores at the cash registers. Dealing with us, the public, is hard enough in normal times. In Covid times it must be absolutely awful.

Covid19 Supporters Unite

Covid19 Supporters Together

Supporters of SARS-CoV-2 gathered on the Grand Parade yesterday to encourage members of the public to get infected with the virus instead of being vaccinated as it’s “just like the flu” or “the vaccine makes you sick”. There was a good turn out at the event and a spokesperson for the virus said they hoped for a positive bump in numbers in the next two weeks.

Thankfully they’re in the minority as 88.1% of over-18s in Ireland are now vaccinated. The journey to removing all restrictions will start next month, culminating on October 22nd when the only real restrictions will be:

  • Use of EU Digital Covid Certificate for international travel.
  • Wearing of facemasks in medical settings, retail and public transport.

The virus hasn’t gone away. Those that are vaccinated can still catch it but probably won’t get as sick or end up in hospital. I’m still going to be careful until numbers really go down.
