Zero Covid?

The COVID Diaries – 125 1st August

Professor Susan Mitchie, a member of the Independent Sage group if scientific experts, has said that indoor venues like pubs and gyms should shut in an effort to reach “zero Covid”.

The call came after Chris Whitty, chief medical officer, warned that England was now “near the limit” of the restrictions which can be relaxed without losing control of the virus, telling a Downing Street press conference: “If we wish to do more things in the future, we may have to do less of some other things.”

And another member of Sage, the government’s official group of scientific advisers, said pubs and other leisure venues may have to close in order to allow children to return safely to school in September.
