Ahh, finally, just announced as a serious possibility by The Sunday Times. The government may be moving, at last, in the right direction, it is trailed as a"nuclear option", but is just a logical strategy, arguably to my mind, the only logical strategy. Everyone over 50 would be given a personal risk rating to Covid and those with a high risk advised to stay at home and everyone else encouraged to just get on with life. I have been saying this right from the start (and criticised for it by many I have to say), but the government realise they cannot keep locking down the country, it's not practical or desirable. Any second rise in the numbers (and I predict it won't ever go as high as it was anyway) should be combated this way, not by any reversion to social distancing and lockdowns. In fact they should junk the face coverings as well in my view, back to normal for the majority should be the mantra. What is interesting is on the radio just now it was surprising how many of these over cautious "experts" were implying this was always going to happen, or words to that effect, talk about jumping on the bandwagon, they never said that before ! Maybe if they'd done this at the start society and the economy might not be in quite as bad a position as we are. Of relevance on a business forum, the problem is for many employers is that they may be put in an awkward position regarding their staff, which is why who pays these vulnerable people (and who decides they are) should to down to the government, not employers.
