SIR - There are many heated debates now on media outlets about the roadmap out of coronavirus restrictions in the UK, mainly linked to the variants.

I'm getting tired of these people who take the moral high ground by saying we've had 127,000 Covid-19 deaths in the UK and they've lost one of their relatives as if they're the only ones that have. Someone should quote to them the number of other deaths there are attributed to conditions such as dementia and cancer. As well as the millions of people worldwide that die from air pollution every year while these paragons of public health virtue mostly get around by driving cars.

Deaths worldwide caused by air pollution related illnesses dwarfed the number of Covid-19 deaths in 2020 and can be caught simply being anywhere outside and affect the young more.

We've got the vaccines and we can't live with restrictions for ever, it is morally unacceptable. As a society we have to live with many other mass death cults that people are oddly happy to live with while often contributing to them. It is these that put a strain on our NHS hospitals all the time.
