London – Freedom day started in Great Britain on Monday, where almost all restrictions imposed to contain the spread of the coronavirus have been lifted, including respect for social distancing and the obligation to wear a mask indoors. With experts inviting you to wear a mask anyway and the fear that up to 200,000 cases a day could be registered, Britain enters this new phase with Health Minister Matt Hancock positive for Covid-19 and Prime Minister Boris Johnson forced to self-isolate by close contact with an infected person.
Hence Johnson’s appeal to be “cautious”. On social media there was no shortage of sarcastic posts from doctors of the national health service. A doctor tweeted about a big midnight ICU party to celebrate the end of Covid-19 thanks to Freedom Day. accompanied by a photo of him in the hospital, ready to welcome new infected. Someone else, also on social media, spoke of a ” criminal ” initiative. And there are those who speak of the day of “ surrender ” instead of freedom.
Meanwhile, the country has registered 48.161 Covid-19 cases and 25 deaths in the last 24 hours, according to data from the official bulletin, figures slightly down compared to the 54,674 infections and 41 deaths announced yesterday, while exactly a week ago, the figure was 31,772 infections and 26 deaths.
