I agree, but objective risk assessment hasn't been a feature of policy in this or any other area, for example the current guidance on meeting people outdoors is not based on any objective evidence at all . The principle is "An abundance of caution". Whether that is wise or foolish is not for this forum!Absolute farce that yet again totally fails to recognise the real risks that exist.
I really do not understand the logic or science that is being used here to continue the unnecessary isolation. There are certain facts that need to be considered, some of them uncomfortable.
Residents in care home are usually at the end of their lives.
They crave contact with friends and families.
They are vaccinated and have been for time for the vaccine to be effective
The risk, even if they caught Covid is now low
They are probably at more risk from the non vaccinated care staff... 30%or more... Than the overwhelmingly vaccinated older visitors.
I ask... What is the risk...
Where is the problem
I would argue that in previous years they would be more at risk from Norovirus or flu.
This imprisonment should end and let a more logical real risk assessment be introduced
