Per spiderplant's post below, like many things, it's looking less and less like Project Fear.

Someone's math is wrong somewhere (not your's Seph)

“If you have a virus with an R0 of 6 or 7, then the herd immunity point is somewhere in the region of 85%”, explained Martin Hibberd, Professor of Emerging Infectious Diseases at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Quote:
Fully jabbed travellers returning to England and Wales from France will still have to quarantine from Monday.

From 19 July, adults who have been double jabbed in the UK arriving from amber list countries will not need to isolate for 10 days.

But the government said the easing would not apply to France due to "persistent" cases of the Beta variant, first identified in South Africa.

There are concerns vaccines may not work as well against the Beta variant.
Sigh! Frankly I think confusion is all we can look forward to for months. It would be nice if everyone was singing from the same song sheet.I am going nowhere for some time.
