British scientists have warned that the UK is not ready to lift the coronavirus health restrictions planned for July 19. Critics of the so-called “Free Day”, including Dr. Stephen Griffin, say that cases of delta mutants are too expensive to combat.
Stephen Griffin: So what’s frustrating here is that these great vaccines are there, but they’re actually being used as a fallback to allow the government to almost repeat last year’s mistakes. That is, they have unlocked badly twice now, and we are now looking at it again a third time. And I understand the economic implications of restrictions-of course we do. But its worst version is that it has extreme restrictions, unlocking and then back again. This is exactly what we did.
Currently, there are many studies showing that the country that did its best in this pandemic is the one that controls viral infections. And there is a direct correlation between controlling the virus and organizing your economy. And the idea of allowing this virus to pass through our population faster than vaccination can catch up with this of herd immunity due to infections that do not actually function properly and will harm people. I’m getting closer to my idea. So, frankly, I think it’s completely irresponsible.
