UK could face second lockdown ‘within months’ as outbreaks occur across the nation

Closed: the indecent haste with which Boris Johnson has been rushing England out of lockdown has already created Covid-19 infection spikes in several cities, and in schools across that country.

The UK faces a second wave of Covid-19 in as little as a few weeks, according to a professor of global public health.

Devi Sridhar, who acts as the public health adviser for Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon, warned of “constant outbreaks” as lockdown restrictions ease across the country.

She tweeted: “I know that everyone wants the economy to go full steam ahead in the UK. But I fear we will be in another lockdown within months, if not weeks…

“Eliminate the virus over the summer then open up safely. Otherwise enter winter and flu season in a dangerous halfway house.”

Here’s the proof of her words:

Three new coronavirus hotspots named in list of top 10 worst-hit areastrumpeted the Mirror on July 9:

The information from Public Health England shows that the number of infections is on the rise in Blackburn, Bedford and Peterborough.

Leicester continues to have the highest number of Covid-19 infections in the UK, and Health Secretary Matt Hancock was forced to admit that this has been largely fuelled by outbreaks in schools.

So it should come as no surprise to learn that Covid-19 in schools is at its highest level in six weeks – since they were reopened at the beginning of June:

The graph, by the way, shows the number of schools affected. The number of infections is likely to be significantly higher.

So there it is.

Perhaps you don’t think there’s any reason to worry. After all, both the Tory government and the Labour opposition are keen to tell you that it’s all under control and there is no cause for worry.

As the Covid-19 unnecessary death toll in the UK inches closer to 70,000, just have a think about whether you believe that before you head off to the pub.

    I do wish you would put ‘Labour’ in quotes, Mike. ‘Opposition’ too, come to that, at least in some if not many respects…
