see Australia locking down again. To many young people (mostly in their 20s) ignoring distancing and not wearing mask so been a increase in infections.

The virus not killing the young, it when they get infected and take it home and infect their parents, grand parents, uncles and aunties .. it is these that are dying because of the younger ones.

They was going to try bring in a law that those who know they infected and still not stay isolated be treated the same if carrying a deadly weapon and be arrested and charged as such.

I think the planet's magnetic poles must have flipped.
Protesters go on the march, peaceful and jutafiably well intended, while distancing and masks are both notable in their absence. The media and Democrats say little other than reflecting upon the need to defund or abolish the police and virtually nothing is said about the hooligans who loot, burn and destroy property both public and private.
Then Trump hosts a rally all quite peaceful and proper, save for the notable absence of distancing and masks, and the media and Democrats suddenly take notice.
New York is #1 in the nation with hospitalizations and deaths. The absence of media and Democrat commentary is notable.
Texas has a marked increase in positive infections while hospitalizations and deaths remain at levels near the bottom of the list. The media and Democrats suddenly take notice.
Here's what everybody failed to notice ... Texas greatly expanded its testing to include more "healthy" citizens. What they identified was the number of asymptomatic people who tested positive.

Respectfully, can we not get into politics here? My perception of American events and media coverage has been quite different than yours, but there’s no need to point fingers and bring vitriol into a hobby community which, at least for me, has become a rare happy refuge from a turbulent world. :)

Looks like one particular city in the UK is being problematic, so they may be put on a 'local' city wide lockdown rather than county or country wide.
