We take into account a multitude of factors, a multitude of factors, when it comes to making decisions about what restrictions need to stay, what restrictions can go, what restrictions can be modified and changed.
Which look at many, many factors. The other side of that coin is of course when you look at the modelling that is underpinned and been refreshed and renewed there were more than 1,000 inputs went into that modelling so we are looking at all the different factors that are important and as I’ve said many types as well, these restrictions will be in place for so long as they serve a proportionate – or deliver a proportionate benefit if terms of the protection of public health and the protection of life and the maintenance of this virus at very, very low levels. We have all come so far.
There’s just this little bit more to go before we can, we hope, take a big step. But that step has to be a safe one. Otherwise everything we have given, everything we have sacrificed willed count for precisely nothing.
So we’re just not going to do it that way. You can’t short cut this thing. You can’t cheat this thing. You have to defeat it properly and then get the numbers low, you can keep them low, you can open up.
There will still be rules, there will be some rules, it is not normal we are going back to, it is Covid normal and I wish it were another way but that is not the nature of this virus.
Proof positive is to look at other par of the world, Asia, North America, Europe, they are not recording nine cases a day, some are recording 9,000, 10,000, 15,000 a day and they are coming into the winter where there is pretty substantial evidence to suggest that this virus is at its peak in some respects when you get that cold, cold weather. We aim to be in a very different place but we have to stay the course in order to get there.
