I don't think many took much notice of the last lock down mate - folk round here took a few precautions to be on the safe side but, the majority didn't go all in for the narrative. Most of us did the bare minimum to avoid the grasses and a fine.
I held back (thankfully) because of how quick the vaccines had been rushed out - the missus had 2 jabs because of her asthma, I had none. She had covid last December and it was like a mild cold. We we're still getting our jollies pretty regular but, I never caught it.
I reckon I'll take the same attitude wether it's Monkey pox
