From Hans Bromwich, Cowes:

Brilliant news there are promising vaccines on the horizon for Covid-19...but will we now simply slip back to business as usual mode?

If there are any positives from this pandemic, then perhaps it is in the ability to shown us how fragile our existence is.

We ignore this wake up call at our peril.

The stupidity of pairing back everything to skeletal levels in our NHS has cost us dearly both financially and in preventable deaths.

The irony is that this penny pinching, resulting in a criminal lack of preparedness, has cost us well in excess of what it would have cost to have funded our NHS adequately.
