The Scientific advisory committee to the UK govt,SAGE has come out with the confirmation that the rate of transmissibility of this mutant virus is between 40-80%.
The report says with all the current restrictions plus closing down of schools,colleges and universities will not be able to control the spread.
A strongly worded statement,” this pandemic is out of control”.
The report strictly advises UK nationals not to travel to other countries and vice versa and that the destination countries use widespread testing to screen anybody travelling out.
The document comes as a shocker but that is the reality that has to be faced.
Containing this mutant is not going to be easy at all unless mass vaccinations of 2 Million doses per day happens.
UK has gone for another full national lockdown from tonight,repeating the times of March 2019.
