The statistics are optimistic, yet the Tories remain ever pessimistic. On the 7th of December 2020, the first UK Pfizer vaccine was injected. Over four months later, in April, the government announced that they had successfully offered a vaccine to all nine of the most vulnerable groups of the UK. The government also claims that we are at hurd immunity, which is a concept the government previously denied as existing, with at least 73.4% of UK citizens having Covid anti-bodies. So, this means that not only should those who are at risk of becoming hospitalised or dead are protected, but the disease should also be dying out. In London, infection rates are down to 20 per 100,000 and yet the so-called road map to freedom has only just started. It will be yet another month before restaurants can open indoors and the nonsensical, yet nicely even, rule of six will be lifted outdoors. Most pubs are still closed until they can offer indoor seating in May, because they will simply fail to make a profit. Socially distancing patrons in ash-stained smoking areas during the miserable great British spring is not exactly the soundest business model.
