I like Prof Van-Tam. He's a highly qualified, no nonsense, epidemiologist, and is one of the three Deputy Chief Medical officers for England; currently advising the government on Covid-19.
What he doesn't know about the present pandemic, isn't worth knowing. Talking of the proposed relaxation of the UK's current restrictions, he said......
"Don't wreck this now, it's too early to relax".
He is, of course, absolutely right. If the virus continues to spread it is only because far too many people continue to behave in an irresponsible manner. Always listen to those who know what they're talking about. Van-Tam does!
This frustration doesn't end here. Mr Ken Marsh, who is the Chairman of the UK's Metropolitan Police Federation recently said "Police don't want to police this. We have had enough of this. It's not policeable. It's not manageable". They can no longer cope with the amount of people hell-bent on spreading the virus. They prefer to catch burglars.
And on the subject of vaccines, I've just heard this morning that France will start giving the British Astra-Zeneca jab. Just be grateful you don't have Macron in charge of your country. What a plonker!
