Day 488 of self-isolation - 50K


Several days ago we were told by Bojo that the number of new cases per day could reach 50,000. Yesterday, we hit 51870.

So, we're on track for 100,000 per day,  and that's before we remove all mandatory requirements such as masking and social distancing.

We can regard this as the Great British Experiment. What happens when you have the delta variant rampaging through the population, 53% of the population fully vaccinated, and the floodgates are opened?

In a month or two, we'll know the answer, and it will be either a brave gamble that paid off and that other countries can follow, or a horrible example of what happens when a half-baked government loses its mind.
