NEW ďtier fourĒ restrictions which would close restaurants and non-essential shops could reportedly be introduced if the current rules do not tackle the second wave of coronavirus.

The government is reportedly drawing up fresh plans to add an extra tier of Covid-19 restrictions in England if cases continue to rise.

Re: Coronavirus

Can't help but think English people are setting out to be offended by Scotland. Align as much as possible by keeping Tier 1-3 an it's complicating matters. Someone suggested a colour coded system - this would have been simply dismissed as being different for the sake of it.

As someone in an area more likely to land in Tier 4 than Tier 0 in a hurry I'm not too worried about the numbering system. I suspect by the time we are at Tier 0 there will be a new system anyway!

Re: Coronavirus

BoJo has been taking a different tone on Track and Trace recently so I wonder if this criticism has been authorised by No. 10?
Quote:
A top Tory MP and leading Boris Johnson ally is calling for Dido Harding, the beleaguered boss of NHS Test and Trace, to be axed.

Sir Bernard Jenkin, who chairs the powerful Liaison Committee of senior MPs, says Conservative peer Baroness Harding "should be given a well-earned break", adding that "the immediate priority is to fill the vacuum of leadership in Test and Trace".

His call comes just days after the prime minister and his chief scientific adviser publicly admitted for the first time that the system is not working effectively.

Quote from Tony Parsons: (Sun opinion)
BORIS and his boffins should wheel out a new daily graph that reveals the true cost of their obsession with lockdowns.

Where is the graph that tells us how many cancer sufferers have been unable to access treatment?

Where is the chart that show us how many children have had life-changing surgery postponed?

Where is the diagram that reveals how many of the desperately ill have missed chemotherapy sessions because this Government and its experts have only one thing on their minds?

Letís have the big picture, please ó not just the number of coronavirus cases and deaths, because that is only one part of our nationís suffering.

Letís also count how many beloved mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, husbands and wives have been lost because this Government and its scientific brains see only coronavirus.

Re: Coronavirus

Didn't realise that everything has only affected England.
Year-long waits have still to reach 2008 levels.
Regular seasonal flu has an impact, as does strikes by unions.

Mine has been delayed by just a couple of hours.

May have to cancel because the area is at risk of going into the Level 2 Tier. Don't see how indoor gatherings could be avoided. Not sure how quickly potential Glaucoma can take full effect.
