Coronavirus second wave graph

Second Wave

So today we are officially in the second wave of the coronavirus. It’s only three months since the end of the first wave. It didn’t take the virus long to bounce back. At the end of August I noticed an upsurge in the numbers, and by the time the children went back to school the trend was already established. It was clear the virus was taking hold in the UK again. I think the summer holidays is to blame for this. People took trips to Europe when the virus was already widespread once more, and then they brought it back to the UK. We are an island, we should have done better than that. Also, young people (between the ages of 16 – 30) relaxed and acted as if there was no such thing as the pandemic. There were many illegal raves and parties. Now the country is seeing the effects of these things. A nationwide lockdown may be needed once again, as a “circuit breaker,” although the Government says it wants to avoid this if at all possible. It also says schools will stay open. Thank God.
