Easing the UK COVID-19 lockdown

At MEN R US, it's an ongoing battle getting to grips with COVID-19  as lock-down eases. Some of the guidance and/ or instructions are unclear and conflicting, with politicians and public health officials seemingly at odds, more often than not. So, we continue to social distance when/ wherever we can, wear masks when out and about, and work from home. Not everybody can and we are fortunate we can do this.

What also matters to us is:

  • the COVID-19 reproduction or 'R' number
  • the progress and take-up of COVID-19 tracker apps
  • the progress of the COVID-19 testing programme (for all)
  • the development and distribution of an effective vaccine
  • the supply and distribution of functioning Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

As for the rest: we need a lie-down!*
