Blog: UK coronavirus live: cases slightly down on previous week; Brexit talks paused after EU official tests positive – The Guardian

I’m incredibly anxious. I think until we see community transmission rates much further down, I think it’s really difficult to say we should be doing this [opening up significantly for Christmas].

It’s a date in the month. I know it’s culturally important, but so are other dates in other people’s calendars …

If Covid cases become hospital admissions, and then sadly go on to be deaths, we will regret a Christmas season that’s given Granny Covid for Christmas, as opposed to let’s work our way, step by step, through a rational, controlled plan to come out the other side of this, when we’ve got a vaccine, into spring and we can actually start having a much more normal society.
