When the public say the covid situation is getting worse they are not
just counting new cases or deaths.
They are looking at jobs lost, queues at food banks, businesses
closed, mask wearing, fear of going near other people, no recovery to
what life used to be like, etc. Many people are struggling to survive
in this new environment. No wonder they're getting depressed.
