Pfizer/BioNTech announce that trials of their vaccine are looking very promising. But we will all need to be vigilant in the meantime. It will probably still not be available until early next year. Why could Johnson say this, instead of his relentless hyperbole. There are still many questions about the vaccine but it seems that the current situation will not be permanent. So calm down. A study by King’s College found that only 11% of people who should self isolate are doing so properly.
It is probably too late for the government to appeal for adherence to the rules. Dominic Cummings and Johnson’s dad ensured that the public does not take laws seriously. And is it really true that NHS workers cannot get a test unless they themselves have symptoms? A member of the family/household with symptoms does not count!
