i understand that !the 2km limit applies specifically, and only, to exercise. it's not a limit on how far you can travel to buy food. there is no stated limit on how far you need to travel to buy essentials.
my issue is that no one has explained why 2 km was chosen.
compared to going into a supermarket to do my shopping,
someone going for a walk alone more the 2 km from their
home is an almost irrelevant risk.
very easy to avoid people when out walking at the moment
even in cities.
lone people who go out aren't a problem surely ?
unless this was a statement of intent to show how serious things
are going to get in the next month(s) ?
if so then go for a stricter shutdown now, not next week.
Gary has probably answered this above. being straight with
people (or me anyway) tends to get great results.
i appreciate a lot of folks are suffering hugely, cooped up in cramped
conditions and getting out briefly is a huge relief.
(hey, maybe they don't want separated couples shagging or
something else i know nothing about)
