On the day that Boris Johnson warned that a supposed 'third wave' in Europe would inevitably affect the UK, reported Covid deaths dropped to their lowest daily total here since September. Seventeen deaths represent 0.00002 per cent of our population. Only a SAGE agent could still refer to this as a deadly pandemic.
Hospital admissions also continue to plummet, while new cases have flattened - despite a huge ramping up of testing following the reopening of schools. The latest dashboard can be seen below or click here for more information.
With all at risk groups now vaccinated in the UK, how can our PM speak of a third wave? Do the vaccines work or don't they? If they work then a third wave is not possible - if they don't work then we've all been lied to, again.
End the lockdown. Now.
