Be prepared to meet Covid by Christmas was the stern message from epidemiologist Michael Baker yesterday.

That is the new reality, but it's a massive change of mindset.

Clinical psychologist Jacqui Maguire told Heather du Plessis-Allan that people are fatigued with Covid.

"You have to think about what it's like to be agile, to shift mindset, to shift strategy on entire brains, and I think it's going to take time."

Maguire argues those over lockdown and double-vaccinated will adapt quickly, but those that are more vulnerable in terms of financial stability and health will be more anxious.
