Tories have reduced coronavirus alert level from 4 to 3 and claim continued downward infection trends in spite of rising number of outbreaks
As national news reports a ‘mystery’ third coronavirus outbreak in a meat production plant – Cleckheaton in Yorkshire now added to Anglesey and Wrexham – locals say that Doncaster hospital in South Yorkshire has seen a huge spike in COVID-19 admissions.
At the other end of the country, Epsom Primary School has been forced to close its doors after a new outbreak of the virus – and in between, infection rates are rising rapidly.
Yet the government tells the nation daily that the incidence of the virus is reducing and the Tories have just reduced the alert level from four to three – after weeks of implementing level two and level one lockdown changes anyway.
At the same time, US states that lifted lockdown early for economic reasons have seen rocketing rates of infection.
Is the Tory government misleading the people about the real state of the UK pandemic?
