No amount of shutting your eyes and wishing naughty Mr Covid will go away is going to change the situation.

No amount of stamping your feet and being a pathetic whiney bitch is going to bring lockdowns back or zero COVID.

NEW: All remaining Covid-19 restrictions in the Isle of Man will be removed at 00:01am on Friday 1st April. 

 

This will include removing the travel declaration and landing form on arrival.

Its great news. All we need now is for the remaining EU countries to follow suit.

They’re keeping the landing forms so will still need the checkers!

We are only jurisdiction in CTA with them!

They're not keeping the landing forms, everything is going.

And EasyJet are removing the face mask requirement from Saturday too.

Alf Cannan was actually quite measured on the radio when he said that this doesn’t mean that people need to stop taking precautions just that people should do things they’re comfortable with. Julie Edge made some sensible comments about how illnesses in schools should be managed going forward too. The alarmists are having a real field day today. Are some people really that scared of being put back in full control of their own lives? 

There's been reports that schools are being laid low with norovirus and it's not all down to covid. 

Perhaps the teachers need some basic hygiene lessons?

Norovirus has been around a few years. Its endemic and can be nasty. We don't wear masks or make people fill in landing cards for it. I'm not sure what @Roger Mexicois going on about or suggesting

They're the same people who need Public Health to remind them to drink water and wear sun cream when we have a heat wave. 

It's a wonder they manage to dress themselves or wipe their own arse independently.

They are perfectly content to be in full control of their lives. Their concern is that the infect everyone mob are now unsupervised.

You see this is the real problem I’ve had from the start with COVID-19. People like you believing that everyone else is so stupid that they’re a danger to society. There are places you can go in the world if you genuinely think like that. Russia, China, or maybe North Korea? They’re all great at beating down individuality and stealing peoples human rights on the grounds that they are a threat to the system. That sort of mindset is largely incompatible with living in a Western free market democracy. If you can’t live without your comfort blanket it’s time for you to go back indoors.

Funny I assume you must drink drive, speed continually and do anything you want then as those are controlled in a free market democracy. Your repeated attempts to belittle by use of terms such as comfort blanket and nappy wearers are a waste of time. Although given the preponderance of disabled people in the vulnerable group the latter sounds very much like targeted harassment.

The infect everyone mob are not as much of a concern now due to vaccination. It's now or never.

Funny - I just assumed you live in a lead lined basement in a triple-layered hazmat suit. I understand your disappointment at people being handed their lives back. But you need to suck it up. 

Funny I assumed you were a sensible pleasant person.

Think of the savings.  We could ban pregnancy tests and close the Jane!   Cure cancer by not looking for it!  It's the future of medicine.

There are currently ten people ill with Covid in Nobles, most of whom have been vaccinated and boosted, so heaven's know how bad it would have been without our good vaccination coverage.  There are nearly 2000 with the disease, about half of whom will have symptoms. 

No amount of shutting your eyes and wishing naughty Mr Covid will go away is going to change the situation, nor that it will almost certainly happen again with new variants as it has happened in the past.  We can only tell that situations change if we monitor them, stopping testing will prevent that.

Commenters and politicians spout rhetoric about 'living with the virus' and then seem to think that it means ignoring it.  That's not how you deal with an endemic disease.  People don't throw away their anti-malarials and mosquito netting because they've got bored with them.

'Living with the virus' means dealing with it via the health service when it becomes a concern for the individual involved. Like any illness. We live with influenza, norovirus etc... We deal with it as and when needed, otherwise we go about our lives. 

I'll ignore your ridiculous malaria analogy.

Extremely poor analogies Roger. I know you’re being facetious, but pregnancy and cancer are not good comparators. 
 

Malaria however is better. Vaccination not yet widely available (nature of the disease makes it such) but precautions are available, as you describe. People in sub-Saharan Africa live with it, we can go there and take the risk, mitigated by pills, nets, and repellent spray.  As with covid - vaccination is our main precaution and that’s done. Covid is now, thanks to vaccination, a bit like flu in terms of mortality, and probably not as bad in terms of symptoms for the majority. It is time we stopped testing everyone (unless actually ill and possibly needing hospital treatment) all the time and just got on with it as we were in October 2019 with flu around, but before covid had been thought of.

As I said I understand how upset you must be to see the end of all the restrictions and the scaremongering. It must be really frightening for you to be facing the prospect of not seeing people wearing masks going about their daily business. But you’re going to have to get used to it. Just like we have had to get used to your incessant fear mongering and general panic spreading nonsense over the last 2 years. 

I'm not upset. I don't think restrictions should be necessary. It should be normal behaviour to avoid giving other people any infectious disease.

I rarely use MF so I've hardly been spreading panic - not least because I'm not panicking.

The condescension doesn't work any better than your attempts to belittle. It's just failed bullying.
