I’ve just read that Chris Whitty has said that England could be sent into another lockdown within weeks as Covid cases are rising fast. Am I imagining it or is this not the same Chris Whitty who stood alongside BJ only last Monday and appeared to endorse lifting restrictions from the 19th? How can anyone have any faith in this government they obviously don’t have a clue what to do next.
I think that we will certainly have to expect something like this.
Cases are at 50k and set to at least double. We were told last year that covid is expected to drop throughout the summer months and rise in winter. The greater the spread, the higher the chance of a new variant.
R is between 1.3-1.5
Deaths lag by at least 3 weeks - 43 yesterday
The young are being seriously affected by covid attacking their major organs and by long covid.
Pfizer supply is slowing down - the vaccine of choice for the young.
But we knew all this didn’t we? We don’t need telling when it is common sense.
Well for your sakes I hope it isn't like ours. No visitors except one in your 'bubble'. Only a 5 km radius allowed for essential shopping/exercise. Shops etc all shut except chemists and supermarkets. Masks indoors and outdoors. Only allowed one other person to exercise/walk with. Lockdown seems to be more often than not round here. They will let you go out to get a vaccination or have a Covid test. Aren't we lucky? Might go just for something to do....
I’m sure it’s because of the school holidays, England and Wales will probably go down over the next few weeks as most break up for the summer today, and Scotland will go back up again soon when the children return at the beginning of August.
