Sometimes it is about personal responsibility and sometimes it is about clear rules and regulations in place to protect people from their own worst instincts.Just_a_fan wrote: ↑Fri Jan 08, 2021 2:46 pmI think the big problem is the asymptomatic cases. People who have it and feel the effects don't go out and about because they know they've got it and feel bad - just like you do with other illnesses. Those that have it and don't have any symptoms go out and about and potentially spread it.
I'd suggest the countries that have done better have different policies in place for the latter because as far as I can tell most humans around the world are very similar with respect to the former.
I remember early last year in England when many other counties had compulsory masks and England had vague guidelines not strongly recommending them. Then England did a U-turn in the course of 2 days and suddenly everyone managed to wear masks which they obviously already had purchased and were just not wearing for whatever reason (lack of personal responsibility? Shame?). They seemed to require bojo to give them gave them a little persuasion or permission or guidance? To me that's an interesting example of human behaviour.
