Replying To KillingFields:  "Sorry but your sense of logic needs readjusting. The payments are being made because people cannot work, they cannot work because of COVID and the lockdown, hence if we keep going into lockdowns we keep needing to make the payments. We need to learn to live with it and have people at work - its a crazy idea but it has to happen and if that is to happen. Now your an expert on everything so I assume you have a ready made answer for how we are going to live with this virus going forward or are you one of those people who think we can eradicate it altogether ?

Many of the people on the payments will be getting the payments even if we dont keep going back into lockdown as there jobs were lost and will not be coming back simply because we are out of lockdown.
You have to minimise risk. And you seem to know how we are doing it all wrong so why dont you provide an answer as to how we should be living with it."
So, let me see
I have said we cannot keep locking down the country as a way of living with the virus. I believe everyone needs to wear masks and we need to repurpose our healthcare systems and perhaps build covid specific treatment centers as a way of preventing this virus from causing even more damage. We need to ensure that people working in high risk areas are regularly tested and supported if they are out of work if they have the virus. We need to change our labor laws such that support is given to people who are directly affected by positive cases not everyone in the country. If a viable vaccine is produced, then it should be free and anyone who does not take it will not get financial support if they get the virus. That's just a few but end the lockdowns. There is no one answer but the question needs to be addressed and it not being at the moment.
So tell me since you are on here criticizing everyone who says that we have to change the way we are doing this, tell me how the country continues to pay for all the payments and how people who need to get medical care other then covid are going to get it, or is your solution to hide indoors forever. Your logic is that because some jobs will be lost as a result of covid and how we have responded to it - lockdowns, that we should stay in lockdowns as its not worth coming out of them. Brilliant idea."

I never said or implied that indefinite lockdowns are the solution. You have to continue the payments because you cant just have people go back to normal as that spreads covid far more and puts far more pressure on the healthcare system.
