More Corona Cases in London
at The End of Lockdown Than
Before it Started
So what was the point?
8 December, 2020
Health experts tracking the effectiveness of the UK’s latest lockdown say there were more COVID cases in London when the lockdown ended compared to when it started.
Their solution? Another lockdown. Because that makes perfect sense.
England entered a second national lockdown on November 5 before that was lifted and the three tier system reintroduced on December 2.
However, it appears to have had no impact whatsoever.
Less than a week after coming out of lockdown, London may be about to enter another one (tier 3 restrictions are basically the same as a full lockdown) because of a rise in coronavirus cases.
“The capital is now the second worst region in the country, just behind the West Midlands, with more than 15,000 people testing positive in the past week, a rate of 169.6 per 100,000 people, up from 150.9 a month ago,” reports the Telegraph.
Responding to the numbers, Professor Paul Hunter at the University of East Anglia said: “There were more cases at the end of lockdown than at the start in London.”
So what was the point of the lockdown?
Despite the lockdown having achieved nothing but a rise in cases, Hunter advocated for another lockdown, asserting that London should be moved to tier 3.
“He did not offer an explanation why the recent national lockdown had failed to affect the case numbers or why, despite this, subjecting the capital to additional restrictions would be a wise course of action,” reports LockdownSceptics.org.
Meanwhile, just weeks after imposing a 17 day “firebreak” lockdown, the Welsh government is now saying that another lockdown may be needed before Christmas.
Once again, the “answer” to a failed lockdown is yet another lockdown
