Here’s A Detailed Scientific Thread On The Short Term COVID Outlook In England

It’s not looking good.

Obviously everyone is absolutely fuming that the government has pushed back the freedom day that was set for next Monday 21st June and screwed up everyone’s summer plans because of the Delta/Indian variant and hospital admissions going up, but what does this mean for the future?

Well, I’m not a medical professional with any knowledge of how Coronavirus is developing, but Professor Christina Pagel does have these qualifications and has laid out how she sees the situation developing over the next few weeks and let me tell you, it’s not looking good. I’m not even gonna attempt to paraphrase this so just read the below and see what you think:

Damn. That really does seem like we might have a couple of OK months in the summer again and then be subject to another extended lockdown again when the autumn rolls round which seems kind of unbelievable at this point given what the government has said all year. It’s especially worse when Pagel makes it very clear that the fact that the government didn’t bother securing the borders meant that the Indian variant managed to take a stranglehold on this country.

Whether or not that’s true is anyone’s guess – I tend to listen to scientists and not doubt them, but there’s obviously a lot of people out there who think that this is just a form of government control or don’t believe in any of it – but it looks like it isn’t going away any time soon. Will it ever end? Depressing.
