Son avertissement est venu après que Boris Johnson et Matt Hancock ont ​​exhorté les gens à s’en tenir aux mesures de distanciation sociale et à résister à la tentation de profiter des prévisions de soleil pour des pans du Royaume-Uni samedi et dimanche.

Asked what would happen if people flouted the social distancing rules this weekend, Professor Ferguson told BBC Radio 4: “This brings us to a slightly more pessimistic scenario.

“We still think things will stabilize but we will be at fairly high levels of infection for weeks and weeks rather than seeing a fairly rapid decline like the type seen in China. “

He said he “hoped” that some of the intense social distancing measures could be replaced by quick access to testing and contact tracing in a few weeks – once the number of cases is lower.

“We want to move to a situation where, at least by the end of May, we will be able to substitute less intensive measures, more based on technology and tests, for the complete locking that we currently have,” he explained. .

Elle survient après qu’un modéliste pandémique a informé le gouvernement que les mesures de verrouillage n’étaient qu’un « espace réservé » et que la Grande-Bretagne s’était « peinte dans un coin » sans stratégie de sortie claire de la crise de Covid-19.

Le professeur Graham Medley a déclaré au Times: « Cette maladie est si méchante que nous avons dû la supprimer complètement. Then we sort of painted ourselves in a corner, because then the question will be, what do we do now?

« Nous aurons fait trois semaines de ce verrouillage, donc il y a une grosse décision à venir le 13 avril. In general terms will we continue to harm children to protect the vulnerable, or not? “

Professor Medley added: “If we continue with locking, it saves us more time, we can think about it more, but it doesn’t solve anything, it’s a placeholder. “

Vendredi, l’infirmière en chef de l’Angleterre, Ruth May, a exhorté les gens à penser à deux infirmières décédées après avoir contracté un coronavirus et à « rester à la maison pour elles ».

Areema Nasreen and Aimee O’Rourke, both mothers of three, died alongside two medical assistants, it was announced Friday.

Mme May, s’exprimant lors de la conférence de presse quotidienne de Downing Street, a déclaré: « Ce week-end va être très chaud et il sera très tentant de sortir et de profiter de ces rayons d’été.

“But please, I ask you to remember Aimée and Areema. Please stay home for them. “

She added, “I fear there will be no more and I want to honor them today and recognize their service. “

Meanwhile:

– Le ministère de la Santé a confirmé que 684 personnes supplémentaires sont décédées à l’hôpital après avoir été testées positives pour le coronavirus, ce qui porte le nombre total de décès au Royaume-Uni à 3605 à 17 heures jeudi.

– Boris Johnson, qui reste dans l’isolement à l’intérieur de Downing Street alors que ses symptômes de coronavirus persistent, a déclaré qu’il « se sentait mieux ».

– La Reine prononcera dimanche un discours à la nation sur la crise des coronavirus.

– Le premier hôpital de campagne d’urgence du gouvernement pour traiter les patients atteints de coronavirus a ouvert ses portes dans le centre ExCel de l’est de Londres.

M. Johnson a exhorté les gens à ne pas enfreindre les règles de distanciation sociale alors que le temps se réchauffe, même s’ils devenaient « un peu fous ».

Dans une vidéo sur les réseaux sociaux, il a déclaré: « Je pense que beaucoup de gens commenceront à penser que tout cela dure depuis assez longtemps et préfèreraient sortir, surtout si vous avez des enfants dans le ménage, tout le monde peut devenir un peu fou, et il peut y avoir juste une tentation de sortir, de sortir et de commencer à enfreindre les règlements.

“I just urge you not to do this. Please follow the advice now. “
