They don't have to i suppose is the answer.Not a good example though, how can they justify restrictions and asking people to wear them again if that is their attitude. Westminster was jammed that day and not an inch between people.
If and just if,hospitals become under heavy stress,businnesses close,people lose holidays, besides the lot more serious people getting sick and dying,that is a lot in part down to their attitude.

The stats for the South West where I live seem to suggest that by keeping the virus low we only delayed the peak by 6 months. After a summer with hardly any cases, we are up to 1000 per 100,000. Children are the worst spreaders of course but plenty of older people are paying the price by ending up in hospital despite having 2 doses. 6 months is too long between second and third doses it seems. I didn't hear of a single case in our village until a month ago, now I know of 10. It does send totally the wrong message to see MPs crowded together with no masks.

True but that is only part of the story. We had a lot less cases from January to July so there was a lot less natural immunity, particularly among children. I am always a bit sceptical about the new cases. How do they count those who are being tested daily? Do they count as a positive every time they take a test if they are infected?

Since then, Adams has fully endorsed mask-wearing both on and off social media. Speaking to Fox News' "Fox and Friends" in July about the surges in coronavirus cases, he advised viewers to be proactive in helping to prevent viral spread by "wearing a face covering when you go out, washing your hands, trying to watch your distance around other people."

He repeated this again to Fox News' Bret Baier after the hospitalization, both for reasons unrelated to COVID-19, of both his wife and mother in November.

"Wearing a mask is an instrument of freedom. It will actually let my kids go to school, it will protect my mother ... (who) is in the hospital right now. I want people to understand that if cases and hospitalizations continue to go up, not only will it hurt our ability to cure for COVID patients, but if someone is having a baby ... if someone is having a potential stroke like my mother, they may not be able to get a bed," Adams said.
