Terrible news, my condolences.Sad to report that my friend's wife who was on a ventilator in a London hospital, died yesterday from Covid.
Sixth person I know personally who had died from it, and I know a few more who are friends and relatives of friends.
I do not know the statistical implications of that, with context that I love in London, a large fairly crowded city, but in my opinion, with one exception, none of these people were likely to die this year.
I acknowledge the damaging social and economic effects of lockdown, but currently think that full lockdown should only lifted when all medically vulnerable people, plus all adults over 45, have had two jabs and then a month for the second jab's effects to fully take effect.
Outdoor socialising in very small groups is an acceptable level of risk, but with masks on for now.
If theatres, galleries etc are to re-open, then have limited capacities, and all customers to be temperature tested and wear masks.
But there is a risk in going, and if someone is any way vulnerable then wait until fully vaccinated.
