Lockdowns did much harm, but it was care home workers who should have isolated


Most people in England and throughout Western Europe who died of Covid-19 did so because care home workers are badly paid and have two jobs so cannot isolate. Immigrants undercutting British workers and pushing down wages are part of the reason.

When Eastern European girls rushed home to mum and dad, due to fears about the virus and lockdowns, this left care homes dangerously short staffed, while residents like everyone else panicked.

On the other hand Austria where I just stayed a week did a good thing by closing her borders. Closing borders makes good sense. I don't think lockdowns did.
