    I'm not sure it was really worth it since I think it is just prolonging the epidemic, making it take longer for the same number of people to catch it, maybe it will end up with more people catching it than there would have been.

    If people had been left to die in large numbers, the government knows that media would have torn them to bits, so they had to act.

    Of course it was worth it, otherwise many of them would lose their lives. Death or unemployment. 

    Your choice.

    You can always get a new job.

    You can't get a new life if you catch and die of china virus

    As opposed to what?   Catching Covid, passing it on, dying from from it, or watching a loved one die from it?  Depends what price you put on a life.

    The alternative would have been the NHS being totally overwhelmed by the far greater number of cases and far more people, including NHS workers, dying from the disease. So yes, it was worth it.

    If selfish bastards persist in thinking the more relaxed rules are unnecessary or don't apply to them the sacrifice of those who have restricted their liberty for the public good or have lost their jobs will be undermined.
