    The number of coronavirus cases is creeping up and hit a four month high of 2,988 new cases yesterday with a similar number recorded on Monday. To a large extent it can be explained: lockdown measures have eased, more people are socialising and going back to work, while some children went back to school in June. As all schools open again this month and students return to universities, the number of cases is likely to increase further. There is also some credence to the argument that the UK is testing more people, so if you test more, it stands to reason you find more virus. The new daily cases are obviously far fewer than the number of cases being reported at the height of the pandemic but that’s not to say it’s not a problem or that we don’t need to worry about it. In fact, the government are “concerned” about it. It’s not a crisis yet I’m told, but it is concerning. There are a number of reasons for this.
