Downing Street has denied it has set any “acceptable level” of Covid deaths but one adviser, who has been close to the UK Government since coronavirus struck 18 months ago, told inews that Prime Minister Boris Johnson had privately accepted that there would be at least a further 30,000 deaths in the UK over the next year, and that the Prime Minister would “only consider imposing further restrictions if that figure looked like it could rise above 50,000”. report


Perhaps someone should go and wake Boris Johnson up, because the UK is already nearing 40,000 deaths a year and the figure is rising. It’s summer, and the kids are still off school. You can probably work out the rest…
