Scientists warn of “second epidemic wave” of Covid-19 pandemic

Scientists warn of “second epidemic wave” of Covid-19 pandemic

The number of people using parks in and around Camden has risen since Boris Johnson revealed his conditional plan last week.

Boris Johnson’s plan was received badly by many people, who found the new rules confusing and unclear.

24 people were admitted to London hospitals with Covid-19 yesterday. Scientists have said that there is likely to be hundreds of cases that did not need hospital treatment.

“I am extremely worried about the media message that London could be Coronavirus free in days,” said Prof Matt Keeling, from the University of Warwick.

He added: “If people think London is Coronavirus-free that could be dangerous, and could lead to complacency, undermining all the struggles and sacrifices that everyone has made so far. A relaxation of vigilance could easily see a second epidemic wave.”

I visited my local park to see whether members of the public were practising the rules of the new conditional plan whilst enjoying the current heat wave.
