This Morning published this video item, entitled “New Covid-19 Rules: Will Blanket Restrictions Work? | This Morning” – below is their description.
Yesterday Prime Minister Boris Johnson implemented new restrictions across England aimed at controlling the virus, saying that it’s ‘simply not an option to lock up the elderly and vulnerable’. However, 32 of the UK’s leading scientists have written to the government to oppose its policy of blanket restriction, instead supporting shielding for the elderly and vulnerable until there’s either a vaccine or the virus subsides. We’re joined by two authors of the letter, Professor Sunetra Gupta and Professor Karol Sikora to hear about their reaction to the latest developments.
