It is hard to understand why more than 150 protesters were arrested in London when demonstrators clashed with police over lock down measures.

I know people who still think corona virus is a hoax even though more people have died from the disease than we lost in the blitz.

The spread of misinformation on social media has much to answer for.

Sadly leaders who should know better, have added to the mask stupidity over a contagious genetic virus that at the time of writing no earthly power has control of.

Even with all the scientific proof, Covid deniers, a significant minority, are not convinced that coronavirus is even a real pandemic and these people are less likely to have a vaccination against the disease when vaccines become available.

Of course this will not matter once the majority people get vaccinated and are immune, thankfully this will end the transmission of the virus whether you believe it or not.
