SKY News is reporting this morning that the UK government “will look at” reimposing restrictions if infections continue to rise and case numbers become unacceptable.
The Solicitor General Lucy Frazer told SKY:
“I think the Health Secretary’s been very clear, as has the Prime Minister, that we will see infections rise.
But the reason why the restrictions have been taken away is because of the vaccination programme, which will protect people when those infection rates do rise.
Meanwhile, speaking to a webinar hosted by the Science Museum, England’s Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said that the country isn’t “out of the woods yet” and should approach the easing of restrictions with great caution.
“We are not by any means out of the woods yet on this, we are in much better shape due to the vaccine programme, and drugs and a variety of other things.
But this has got a long way to run in the UK, and it’s got even further to run globally. I don’t think we should underestimate the fact that we could get into trouble again surprisingly fast.”
Perfectly healthy people continue to submit themselves for testing, hence the rise in cases. As the PCR test is worthless (it has been thoroughly discredited), it’s fair to say that the vast majority of people who return a positive test do not have covid or anything else.
I wonder if someone who has been jabbed is even more likely to return a false positive? Just a thought. I’ve no idea.
It really is Hotel California, something which has been said time and again. They will never let us out of this. Only we can stop it. Non-compliance is the only answer, but it needs numbers.
Lucy Frazer says self-isolation is an 'important tool', after more than half a million people were 'pinged' by the NHS track and trace app.
