I cannot believe after the horrible year we have just endured, we have started another national lockdown on 6th January, 2021.
Highlights of the day:-
The PM Boris Johnson said 1.3 million people across the UK had already been vaccinated for Covid, and that the government would provide daily progress updates from Monday 11th January.
About 1.1 million people in England had Covid-19 between 27 December and 2 January, the ONS [office of national statistics] estimated.
A record 60,916 people have tested positive for the virus in the past 24 hours, with 830 further deaths involving Covid.
Chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty said there would still be some restrictions in place next winter. [we are already talking about next Christmas]
Lockdown3 is about staying in again, no contact, the only travellers are key workers, we can only go out to shop for food and/or medicine for yourself or a vulnerable person. Exercise has special rules too [Outdoor exercise such as walking or running can be done with your household or bubble, or with just one person from another household. Exercise should be limited to once a day and you should stay in your local area.]
Finally all schools to shut after all the work involved in trying to keep them going. Sad Day.
