As always, hospital admissions are the best judge of the volume and impact of the virus spread, and they are also falling. They may be a week behind infection data, but clearly things are moving in the right direction. Especially as those vaccinated are hopefully being taken out of the firing line.
Yep. Time to open the schools, the shops, the cinemas, restaurants and pubs. Let’s ***k it up one last time! Removed

Nobody appears to be suggesting that because the figures are showing a downward trend we should open everything back up.
That mistake was made last time, hopefully downing street is capable of learning from past mistakes...

clearly it is not time for that, but if cases are flat then consideration of more stringent measures is needed. If cases are falling then carrying on as at present is ok.

It's important to know which situation we are in.

That is why the good news about the fall in the number of cases should be delayed or underplayed; significant (even if a minority) number of people are only too keen to "go back to normality" [take control? ouch!] and we have evidence from early December that it is not a good thing. We ought to get cases to a virtual zero before thinking of relaxing.

What do you suspect is the BBCs agenda?
Pretty simple really as the state broadcaster, continue the scaremongering to help enforce the government measures for as long as required.
Scaremongering works. All part of the plan.

Since when was this about infections?

We are “protecting the NHS” so nurses can go back to making Tik Tok dance videos.

I don’t give a stuff how many have the virus, same as I don’t care how many have a cold.

It’s about how many need hospital treatment. Once that drops, life must return to normal.

Don’t allow the snowflakes and lockdown Karen’s to shift the goal posts and imprison everyone.

Stay in, don't mix and follow the rules until you are told otherwise. Simple.

I've already had five lots done this week. We've been far too soft in the UK already but not on my watch. I am respecting the 100,000 and YOU rulebreakers will too, or pay the price.

Nothing on the BBC about the inmates at the former Army Barracks in Kent where there was reputably an outbreak of covid, so the asylum seekers decide to trash it and set some of the accommodation on fire. Pritti Pattel says unacceptable behaviour damage will be paid for by UK taxpayers.
Reported on ITV though.

It's pretty frustrating these numbers are not coming down faster.

We typically like to focus on the serve breaches of lockdown like parties and weddings.

But the issue is large numbers of people mixing households, making small incremental breaches that they feel are justifiable, extending the size of their bubbles and dragging this out longer.
