The U.K. is still at coronavirus alert level 4, meaning transmission is high or rising exponentially, but the country — which has been in lockdown since late March — eased some of its lockdown restrictions on Monday.

Britain's government is putting the country at risk of a second wave of Covid-19 by rushing out of lockdown, a leading scientist has warned.

that social distancing must remain in place at this level, with "gradual relaxing of restrictions and social distancing measures" not supposed to happen until the country moves down into alert level 3.— eased some of its lockdown restrictions on Monday, with people in England allowed to meet outside in socially-distanced groups of up to six and primary schools able to resume classes. Non-essential shops in England are being allowed to reopen from June 15.

While he noted that daily deaths from Covid-19 had fallen from almost 1,200 at the peak of the country's epidemic to around 200, he warned that the government's premature scaling back of its mitigation measures could lead to a resurgence of the virus.

Navsteva Blame arrogant Dominic Cummings 😷

I don't care and I will not be shamed into lock down ever again after witnessing the media blatant bias this weekend

If they open now when it is no safer than when the lockdown started, doesn’t that mean the lockdown was a waste of time and should have just social distanced? It would be better if they just said: “we can’t afford the lockdown anymore so we are going to gamble”

I guess the silver lining to the whole thing is we will find out in 14 days if the rona was a hype job/clickbait or not. If there’s fuck tons of dead radical leftists we will know it was real... if not... Can we at least reopen the gym. Shit
