He didn't imply any of that.
He's just exteralizing his feelings which is important and we are privileged to be part of his support group.
I sympathise with GT and others here directly affected
If it goes on too long, you'll see tourism businesses laying off staff, self-employed operators going bust and all sorts. The self-employed ones get no sick pay etc either if they catch it.
Seems to me that goes on too long is related to the latest restrictions. These restrictions are there to minimise the effects that he stated. Tourism, unemployment, sick days, etc. Those are already unavoidable, but its better to endure short term pain than a much greater long term pain. How I took his post is that goes on too long as a comment against the latest restrictions not about the virus. I think that's a fair comment.
