"It does suggest that these symptoms are of shorter duration than they are of Delta. The court heard she had called to say she was unable to attend as her mother was "extremely ill".49 GMT Boris Johnson has pulled out of a planned visit to a vaccination clinic after a family member tested positive for coronavirus. She was "living off" about £30,000 in savings, with the judge asking about any evidence Redfern was receiving funds from an "outside source"." Any move would be "imminent" The Sun also reported, with a source saying: “A decision is imminent and the mood music is very much towards cutting self-isolation and allowing more people back to work.

Swansea council's prosecutor Lee Reynolds said Redfern had said she received about £55,000 from an online "crowdfunder". But he has pulled out, despite official guidance no longer requiring vaccinated contacts of coronavirus cases to self-isolate. "It suggests that "If people are testing negative with lateral flow tests at the end of those five days because the whole period of that infection and getting over it appears to be faster. He added the "aims" were to pay for legal costs, challenge fines and loss of business, as well five other "charitable" aims, including "taking her kids on holiday to celebrate getting her freedom back". 'Potential consequences' The court heard Redfern had been unable to secure legal representation, with Mr Reynolds saying the local authority has had "no correspondence" from her. The court heard one of Redfern's reasons for appealing for the fine to be reduced was that she had two children. If the isolation period was slashed to five days with negative test results this would rise to about eight per cent. But Judge Thomas warned the court had the power to increase the fine if the appeal was unsuccessful. "We will certainly look at all MACA requests.

He added Redfern's suspended sentence could also be increased, though he added that this is "far less likely than an increase in the fine". Adjourning the case for a week, he said: "Nothing I have said is an indication of the way this case is going to go but she needs to be aware of the potential consequences.” Only last week ministers were wary of making any change that potentially worsened the epidemic and the need to bring in further restrictions."
