According to a frontline specialist in the fight against Covid-19, the virus’s third wave will not be like the first two.
Dr. Richard Cree, an intensive care expert at Middlesbrough’s James Cook University Hospital, said he would like the government to postpone the so-called Freedom Day on June 21.
He did admit, though, that the Prime Minister is under a lot of pressure to keep to the road map for loosening limitations.

He added the unit now has only one critical care Covid 19 patient, a 30-year-old man who has not been vaccinated and is being treated in a new isolation cubicle.

He claims that this will save a large number of elderly people from being extremely ill and dying.
However, he still expects to see severely ill patients who haven’t been vaccinated because they couldn’t, didn’t want to, or the vaccine didn’t work as effectively as intended.
“Ultimately, the choice to abolish all constraints is a political one,” Dr. Cree wrote.
“To be honest, it’s a difficult judgment to make, and your decision will be based on your personal goals and whether you’ve been vaccinated twice.
“After the past 14 months, thank you very much, I would prefer a quieter period at work, and therefore I believe that waiting a little longer is the prudent thing to do.
“However, I totally appreciate Boris (Johnson’s) desire to keep to his original schedule.
“We’ll find out what he decides on Monday, but whatever decision he makes,. (This is a brief piece.)
