Birthday News for today, 4 July: Tony Bryer.
Thanks, going well here despite the current situation - dramatic rise
in Victoria's numbers this week followed by drastic action yesterday -
some public housing high rises in total lockdown: surrounded by police
with police on each corridor to stop anyone leaving or entering. And
just when we thought it was all but over. Hopefully yesterday's UK
relaxations won't rebound as a new spike.
Any relaxation is pretty much certain to increase the C-19 take-up
rate, we just hope it won't be a big spike.
Yes, the figures were IMO at least levelling off. Harder to tell when
they're smaller than the peak as variations are more significant, but my
gut feeling is that at least some of them aren't really _falling_ now.

Even without official relaxation of the rules, a lot of people seem to
have reached a limit to their toleration of the Do's and Don'ts.
I think that's a large part of why the rules _have_ been relaxed. TPTB
foresaw rising infractions, unpopular fines, reluctant police, and so
I do worry that Leicester - and other similar that may follow - have an
air of "divide and conquer"; people are happy when someone other than
them gets it in the neck. It's actually justified - but we have to keep
a very close eye on it. ("They came for ...")
