The Evening News asked prominent local figures for help to encourage everyone to carry on acting to keep COVID at bay. This is what I said:
“We are on the cusp of a second wave because this government has failed abjectly to communicate reliably and consistently. Globally, Downing Street has been uniquely dysfunctional in its handling of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s because we can’t rely on them that we are going to have to do as much as we can to keep ourselves safe.
This lethal disease is still very much with us. The best chance we have of defeating it is by still diligently doing the fundamentals that prevent transmission and infection. So please keep social distancing, washing your hands, masking up and stick to the rule of six.”
