Our political leaders and their "experts" are forcing this 2nd closure on us this year, and their reason is the fear that our hospitals will soon be overwhelmed (lack of beds and staff).

This was already the stated reason for the 3-month lockdown that began in March.

For 7 months, they terrorized the population by brandishing the specter of a 2nd wave of covid-19, and in this time frame neither increased the number of beds, nor upgraded / rewarded the nursing staff, nor committed to additional staff.

Why are we paying a heavy price for all this incompetence?

They condemn us to ruin, like so many others, while receiving astronomical salaries, which are in no way impacted by the measures they impose on us.
How long are we going to accept this?
