Shadow Education Secretary: 'A circuit breaker would reverse infection'

Shadow Education Secretary Kate Green has called for a two to three week circuit breaker in a bid to reverse infection rates.

She told Sophy Ridge: “A circuit breaker for two to three weeks would mean we would be able to halt and reverse the spread of infection right across the country.

“We could use that time to boost our lab capacity, put proper tracing processes in place and then we would have that breathing space which would buy us time to stop the real danger that our NHS faces – that hospitals are going to be filling up far too quickly over the next few weeks.”

    The problem is, the stupid corrupt people are given the mic, and the smart people with perspective are sidelined and censored.

    'A circuit breaker would reverse infection' – this statement is true.
    'A circuit breaker would reverse infection but infection will come back shortly after a circuit breaker' – this statement is also true.
