It will not saddo,if my wife is right and what I posted months ago.She is a biologist tbf not a virologist but what she stated was that non of the Corona family provide long term immunity after infection,that is proven fact.The second point was the movement of people,she stated that is the only transmition method and the only method to suppress the virus i.e stop the movement of people,almost impossible but without confinement there will be no end without a vaccine.

Even worse,if the virus mutates then even a vaccine will only slow it without no movement.

I have never mentioned herd immunity as a resolution, most people don't know what it means. Its a pharmaceutical company terminology which for many years they claim (rightly or wrongly) that they need to get a certain percentage of the population immunised to create 'herd immunity'. The final point you made has always been obvious to me, if there is no gained immunity whats the point of waiting for a vaccine?? All a vaccine does is give you immunity. My point has always been that the money we are wasting on lockdowns etc, should be used to financially support the vulnerable through things like social services that have been neglected for years. My other point has been that this is no more harmful than flu and the figures bare me out. Every year flu kills tens of thousands and this may well do as well. What I am certainly not interested in is people like the OP having an agenda for attention seeking at any cost.

A reasonable response Lara but what should they actually do with child molesting,covid spreaders in your opinion? After all one child molester infected with the virus may pass it to one child,that child may then pass it on to other adults e.g parents and teachers?

Then the reverse,a covid free molester contracting from an innocent child and then passing it to his perverted inner circle and the innocent child doing similar to parents,friends and family et al?

What about Law Enforcement doing what they should be doing instead of threatening and arresting all those culpible?

From the Racing Post

Prime minister Boris Johnson last night announced a second national lockdown for England from Thursday until December 2, including the closure of all betting shops, but racing will be allowed to continue.

Oliver Dowden, the minister with responsibility for sport, confirmed that travel to a place of work will be permitted if it is not possible to work from home, which will include elite sport played behind closed doors.

Last night the BHA issued a statement on the announcement: "The horseracing industry has worked hard to maintain the safety of our participants and the communities in which we live and work. We have done all we can to play our part and will continue to do so under the new restrictions.
