Steep rise makes grim mockery of Johnson’s distancing ‘suggestions’
34 people have died in the UK in the last 24 hours as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The daily trajectory is steepening:
Astonishingly, in spite of the increasing devastation, Johnson is still trying to justify his slowness in closing schools – still only partial even after today’s announcement – by saying that schools are safe because children are less severely affected by the virus.
As if they cannot pick it up at school and pass it on at home to more vulnerable relatives and neighbours.
Johnson’s dithering, his resistance to implementing WHO recommendations and his focus on protecting wealth are lethal – and his claims to be ‘doing the right thing at the right time’ are a sick joke.
