From The Sun.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/13319956/coro...m_source=pushly

EASTER Monday has been pencilled in for the lifting of strict Covid tiers, The Sun can reveal.

Boris Johnson hopes coronavirus cases will have tailed off by April 5.

The news dashes hopes that new vaccines will lead to a swifter end to the crisis — and it will further enrage Tory MPs already threatening mutiny when tough measures are voted on next week.

It will also reignite calls for more financial support for crippled pubs and restaurants.

But the PM is determined to put the NHS first — and believes he will have to wait until after Covid’s winter peak in February and March to ease his grip.


A senior government source told The Sun: “Boris will not countenance hospitals overflowing like they did in Italy.

“Nor can we get to the stage where we have to cancel operations and treatments. In all likelihood, the tiers have to stay.”

Yesterday, Mr Johnson tried to reassure people their areas could be moved into lower tiers if and when infection rates fall.

So there you have it folks. The vaccine won't mean we're suddenly back to normal. Not that any of us here thought it would.

It doesn’t help when the press publish such utter rubbish or, to go back to your earlier posts, news channels give airtime to people who are misinformed.

That's if you're believing the numbers. I'm starting to become seriously sceptical of them now. How can there be 600+ deaths every day this week? We're nearly a month through a full lockdown and it's not as if people most vulnerable weren't being super cautious before that anyway. I definitely think the numbers are being inflated just to justify the measures. People are challenging the government decisions but are afraid to challenge the numbers as they take them as pure facts.


They are probably downplaying them if anything as anyone that dies after day 28 isn’t recorded. When most get to day 21 before they either recover or deteriorate

The vaccine was never going to be an instant solution. You need to inoculate 10s of millions of people and most vaccinations you need 2 doses a few weeks apart. It'd take a few months or so until a high enough amount of people are vaccinated to start getting herd immunity or at least for those most at risk to be vacciated.

Which is what we have all been told and makes total sense. Let's hope we have a warm April!
