The three most important actors in crisis management, the Prime Minister, the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Health, are working out of quarantine.
More controversially, the final phase of easing the restrictions imposed on England in the fight against the coronavirus could hardly have begun. This Monday should have gone down in history as the “day of liberation,” but the timing is downright bizarre: for the first time since mid-January, the number of new illnesses a day exceeds fifty thousand. Despite one of the most successful vaccination programs in the world, about four thousand are still in need of hospital treatment, the highest number since spring, although fortunately it is far from forty thousand in January. On the eve of the lifting of the restrictions, Neil Ferguson, a professor at Imperial College and one of the government’s senior advisers, worsened the already gloomy mood when he predicted: the numbers could even double to the peak of the current wave. ” The high number of cases is already cautious for the English and the Scots, who are scheduling relief for the same day – except for the thousands of fanatics who, for the first time since 23 March last year, Sunday at midnight opening nightclubs in front of hours in a row stood, of course, the one-meter rule of distance ignoring.
Sajid Javid just put a shovel on him to worry. The health minister, who was appointed just three weeks ago, announced the positive result of his Covid rapid test in a video message posted on the social network on Saturday night.
The politician is past both vaccinations, but a second, more reliable PCR test also confirmed the original diagnosis, forcing the minister and his family into self-isolation for ten days. Fortunately, his symptoms are mild, so he also takes the opportunity to promote the vaccination program, but he was in big trouble having personally met with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Finance Minister Rishi Sunak on Downing Street 10, among others, on Friday. The contact tracking system “pinged” both of them, and the duo ran into the public with full weight when they seemed to escape quarantine for a few hours using a trick. The opposition, some conservative colleagues, and the press also roared, seeing the attempt as further evidence that “different rules apply to the establishment and different to ordinary people.” Therefore, the parties concerned voluntarily withdrew from the option offered by the employees of key institutions triggers a bribe lock with daily quick tests and limited freedom of movement. Luckily for Boris Johnson at his rural residence in Checkers, value catchers catch up until next Monday it stays there as well. The prime minister turned to the English in a video message, standing up for his decision to suspend the tightening of the emergency law. He is convinced that the mitigations will take place “at the right time”, but “since the virus is unfortunately still among us, we experience the extraordinary infectious power of the Delta variant on our own skin, we must be very careful”. Johnson a please, please repeat three times, appealed to the common sense of the people. The prime minister sees the break in public schools starting later this week as an important factor. As he said, if he hadn’t stepped in now, “the opening would have been left for fall or winter, when the virus is in a better position due to the cold weather.” In England, the compulsion to wear a mask has been abolished since Monday, but mayors of big cities in public transport and supermarkets, department store chains and independent convenience stores insist on it in shops. A poll commissioned by YouGov, commissioned by The Times, confirmed what the author of these lines also experienced Monday morning: where there was a prescription before, people now wore the mask voluntarily. According to the survey, by the way, only 31 percent of those surveyed would like to party, and 53 percent would not support the idea. 34 percent would go to the theater right away, 48 percent wouldn’t, and in the same way, only 20 percent of 18-24 year olds would be interested in partying, 53 percent wouldn’t.
In relation to regained freedoms, British newspapers preferred to use the word “chaos”, especially because of another turn in travel policy.
Just 48 hours before the relief, under which the double-vaccinated Britons returning from countries at risk of yellow, they are not forced into ten-day quarantine under the condition of carrying out ex-ante and ex-post Covid tests, the government has introduced the so-called yellow-plus category. This is where France, the number two travel destination in the island nation, came. The decision was based on the fact that there – although the number of new cases is just over a tenth of the British – the Beta variant of South African origin is spreading. France’s red rating has also been raised, but this would lead to mandatory ten-day hotel quarantine, which, in addition to diplomatic relations, would also affect food and medicine supplies and exacerbate labor shortages, especially in public transport and freight transport. The mobile phone virus tracking system has now temporarily withdrawn about half a million workers.
