COVID-19: Masks and hand-washing 'should stay' after restrictions are lifted

by News Update

Epidemiologist Prof Tim Spector warns that masks and hand-washing are likely to be needed once COVID restrictions are eased.

He told Sophy Ridge many Asian countries used masks in the winter, and it would be wise for the UK to continue the practice.

The Kings College academic said measures such as shops continuing to provide hand gel to shoppers would also likely continue.

This guy should not be given air time if your not prepared to listen to people equally as qualified but does not share his views

No trouble with the feed until he starts calling out the fear mongering. Is everyone sure there isn't a conspiracy here…..?

The bloke obviously has something missing in his life. Anyone who wants to keep praying at the feet of Satan Bill carry on but leave the rest of us out of it. Lucifer is clearly alive.

PS Bill Gates and the uk based Pirbright institute have actually patented the Corona virus in the states!! Four years ago!

“Since the 1st of January cases have been falling”. Before the lockdown? Interesting

Masks work, it's why I haven't caught covid & I've worked all the way through this pandemic.

Omg sky news cut off tim spector today. They cut him off when he was about to say 'fear mongering' or something.

Why is it the media always has a one sided propaganda, hysteria opinion??

Paul Mills February 14, 2021 - 7:47 PM

Hand washing? Like people should be doing regularly, pandemic or not…

No Mercy February 14, 2021 - 7:48 PM

Isn't it funny how he uses symptoms of prolonged mask wearing as covid symptoms. We have suffered with headaches, chest pains, fatigue etc just because we've been forced to wear a mask for 13 hours a day in a work environment.

Oh look the annual flu season is dying down from October to March as normal what a surprise….We also get a spike in summer because of the rapid weather change.

Mental Unicorn February 14, 2021 - 7:56 PM

People need to re design facemasks with coolers built in im sick of my glasses steaming up and neery falling down stairs and not seeing where I'm going with my hands full of shopping sick of it !!!!!!

Masks and hand washing are easy. It's the f'ing lockdow I'm fed up with

M M February 14, 2021 - 7:56 PM

Pamela Sergeant February 14, 2021 - 8:02 PM

I won't be wearing a mask anymore!

E C February 14, 2021 - 8:04 PM

One question I would like answered would be if we are using the pcr test which as been proven to throw up 93% false positive as spoken by Boris Johnston and Dominic raab in the news what is the real number of infection if the test is so inaccurate 🤔

When this guy at the end started talking about the reasons why he does not watch the Downing Street briefings Sky deliberately cut him off, because they did not like his answer. So sad that Sky has turned into a Great Reset propaganda machine.

This is a sickness of the soul. These are Demonic forces masking themselves as human beings.
The path is clear!
