Three scientists advised the British government that the "Coffid-19" disease is still spreading very quickly in the country, so as not to lift the restrictions of public isolation, and one of them described the decision as political.
Britain will begin to reduce isolation measures gradually from tomorrow, as it will allow the gathering of no more than six people in open spaces while maintaining a distance of two meters, at least, between each person and another, and primary schools will open their doors for some classes.
The government said that it hoped that the application of a new system, by which it would require those in contact with confirmed cases to isolate themselves, would contain the virus and assist the country in returning to its activities.
But director of the Wellcome Trust for Research and a member of the emergency scientific advisory group, Jeremy Ferrer, said he agreed with his colleague John Edmonds that "(Covid-19) is spreading so rapidly that it is not possible to raise public isolation in England."
He wrote on Twitter, “The application (check .. track .. isolate) should be fully effective and able to deal with any increase immediately and quickly, and infection rates must be lower. And he should be reliable. ”
Ferrer said that the new system that Britain's National Health Services Authority had recently implemented should test and track the spread of Corona "at full capacity" before the measures were eased, Bloomberg News reported.
Edmonds, who works at the London School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine and a member of the advisory group, said yesterday, "We are taking a risk here" using a screening and tracking system that has not been tested and described the decision as political.
Edmunds said that, based on the current figures, England is expected to witness between 40 and 80 cases of HIV infection every day, even without a second wave of Corona outbreak.
Professor Peter Hurby, Chairman of the Advisory Group on New and Emerging Respiratory Hazards, also warned that it was too early to lift public isolation procedures in Britain, given that the examination and tracking system is not yet fully operational.
He told BBC Radio: "We cannot go back to a situation where we are witnessing the numbers of injuries and deaths that we have seen before."
"As you know (this system) is not yet fully operational, and here is the risk," he said.
On Thursday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a further easing of Corona's restrictions, and said that the criteria set by the government in this regard had been met.
According to the Office for National Statistics, the rate of new HIV infections in the country is 54,000 per week.
More than 48,000 people died as a result of infection with "Covid-19" in Britain, making it among the most affected countries in the world.
A survey conducted by the National Statistics Office revealed that there are an estimated 54,000 new cases of the disease a week in Britain.
Britain begins to reduce the isolation measures gradually from tomorrow.
Allow no more than six people to gather in open spaces, while maintaining a distance of two meters between each person.
