British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is planning to announce that he will end the United Kingdom’s self-isolating rules after a COVID-19 diagnosis as the country begins to emerge from a wave of Omicron infections.
The Telegraph first reported on Johnson’s plans and said the guidance will remain in place, but those who disregard the rules will not be penalized.
The move comes after England reduced self-isolating guidelines from seven days to five after a negative lateral flow test. The BBC reported that the U.K. reported 109,133 cases on Thursday which marked the lowest figure since late December.
The planned announcement followed the release of data from the U.K. Health Security Agency showed that about two-thirds of positive cases were no longer contagious by the fifth day.
Johnson has been under fire over a leaked video that showed aides last year mocking the previous mandates. (See “COVID WAR CRACKDOWNS AND PROTESTS.”)
Since then, he has faced new calls to resign over allegations of even more parties at 10 Downing Street while the rest of the U.K. was under lockdown.
Johnson apologized last week and admitted that he attended a “bring your own booze” party. (See “ANOTHER COVID FRAUDSTER CAUGHT.”)
Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, accused Johnson of lying about his “industrial-scale partying” during the lockdowns. The BBC reported that six members of Johnson’s Tory party have called for his resignation over the matter.
“I think he broke the law,” Starmer said. “I think he’s as good as admitted that he broke the law.”
TRENDPOST: It is a freak show in front of everyone’s eyes. Those who get caught lying come up with the line that they “apologize.” There is no true apology. The only thing they are sorry about is that they got caught.
Indeed, we have been reporting on how the cartoon character Boris Johnson has, like other politicians we have documented, imposed strict COVID mandates for the citizens as they do what they wish. See “U.K., FU: COVID RULES FOR THEE, BUT NOT FOR ME,” 14 Dec 2021.
TRENDPOST: There are a number of reasons why so many are hesitant to get the COVID Jab. One is that they were rushed along under a project called “Operation Warp Speed.”
Another is the fact that the disease is entirely survivable by most of the people it infects, and those who die from it are suffering from pre-existing comorbidities and/or the elderly, who are suffering from illnesses.
Indeed, as reported by the Associated Press:
“According to data from Johns Hopkins University. That means the case fatality ratio—or the portion of known cases that result in death in the country—is 1.8%. In other words, on average, 98.2% of known COVID-19 patients in the U.S. survive.”
