That the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 3) and (All Tiers) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 (S.I., 2021, No. 8), dated 5 January 2021, a copy of which was laid before this House on 5 January, be approved.
“Initial analysis suggests that this variant is growing faster than the existing variants.”-[Official Report, 14 December 2020; Vol. 686, c. 23.]
“The lesson…you have to learn about this virus…is that it’s important to get ahead of it in terms of actions”.
“It is highly unlikely that measures with stringency and adherence in line with the measures in England in November…would be sufficient to maintain R below 1 in the presence of the new variant.”
“The virus will always get you if you don’t move quickly”.
“I am tired as an NHS employee, I am tired of working beyond my contracted hours because there aren’t enough staff in work. I am tired of covering for colleagues who are shielding or pregnant and cannot have direct patient contact. I am tired of not having enough equipment to do my job because it is stuck in the supply chain. I am tired of having to tell bereaved women that their whole families cannot visit due to social distancing, I am very tired.”
“England entered the pandemic with its public services in a depleted state and its tax and benefit system regeared to the disadvantage of lower income groups… The levels of social, environmental and economic inequality in society are damaging health and wellbeing.”
“Look after your physical wellbeing: Your physical health has a big impact on how you are feeling emotionally and mentally”,
“So much heartache could have been saved if they had made this decision in a timely manner.”
“the Government has jeopardised public health.”
“The government has been completely disinterested in building onshore manufacturing capacity for any of the life-sciences products”.
