Government focusing on impossible target


CONGRATULA­TIONS to Leicester Mercury for highlighti­ng the effects of the local lockdown.

I have felt for some months that the government’s reaction to the pandemic is misplaced. They are fixated on an impossible target in the eradicatio­n of the virus. They are impervious to dissenting views including those of eminent scientists and businessme­n.

They appear to be indifferen­t to the damage caused by their policies, to the economy, to people suffering from non-Covid illnesses and to the general wellbeing of the nation.
