BBC: "Masks and social distancing 'could last years'"

😩

It was never going to end soon. This is the telling quote:

Mary Ramsay, the head of immunisation at Public Health England, said basic measures could be in place until other countries successfully roll out jabs.

Dr Ramsay said restrictions such as face coverings in crowded places and social distancing had become accepted by many and still allowed the economy to function.

She said "people have got used to those lower-level restrictions now, and people can live with them, and the economy can still go on with those less severe restrictions in place".

"So I think certainly for a few years, at least until other parts of the world are as well vaccinated as we are, and the numbers have come down everywhere, that is when we may be able to go very gradually back to a more normal situation," she added.

So people have "got used" to these restrictions, and can be 'expected to live with them'.

Sir Patrick Vallance, the chief scientific adviser, has also said face masks could be needed in certain situations if the number of infections rises in the winter, but that it was possible people will naturally behave in a way that promotes social distancing.

"Naturally behave" = people have been 'conditioned'.

And another question, why should people living in the UK be forced to endure these measures until people in Kenya, Peru or Bhutan get their jabs?

Why do people living in a rural coastal village in Cornwall who have been vaccinated need to keep wearing masks and washing their hands, just because people in New Caledonia or Tibet haven't been vaccinated yet?
