I have previously e-mailed the Isle of Wight Council regarding keeping Island residents safe and monitoring visitors simply pouring off a Red Funnel boat, seen whilst waiting for the bus.

Other passengers also commented on the influx.

I had a reply, saying the situation was being monitored.

But, now, when cases are rising elsewhere,we should either have all ports taking temperature scans or somehow legally get the visitors stopped.

Yes.tourism is important, but at what risk?

It is a parallel to the film, Jaws. Yes,we know there is a great white shark, but you can still swim as we need the money.

I worked in medicine for 42 years and our hospital only has 477 beds.

Let the doubters visit a Covid ward and witness exhausted staff trying to save lives.
