One thing is clear, the government is very concerned about a resurgence of coronavirus in the united kingdom
A week is a very long time in a coronavirus pandemic – a well known fact the government has learned all too shateringly. Avoiding an one-week delay in order to lockdown in March would possibly have halved the death cost, it has previously emerged.
Which goes some way to explain exactly why there have been not one but two screeching U-turns this week – on visit Spain and lockdown measures intended for 4. 6 million people within northern England – both introduced late into the evening and enforced within hours. The ensuing damage and anger have been palpable, and everything point to one thing: that the government is extremely, very worried about a resurgence from the virus on UK soil.
