Christmas lockdown: Britons told to bring masks back to ensure holiday 'is not cancelled'

Dr Bharat Pankhania has urged people to continue to wear their masks so that “Christmas is not cancelled”, saying “we want to save lives”. Dr Pankhania insisted tackling the virus to avoid uncontrolled rises in cases remains a “multi-layered operation” all Britons should take part in. Government advisor Professor Chris Whitty warned that any fresh Christmas lockdown can only be avoided if those who are eligible get their booster vaccinations.


He continued: “Therefore, what you should do is reduce the number of cases.

And if you look at the number of people dead in New Zealand, Australia.

“They’re not comparable countries. On the other hand, look at Germanycomparable country, they have fewer that’s considering the world a bigger population compared to the UK. 

So we haven’t done well.


Dr Pankhania said: He’s absolutely wrong. The wave is already here.

The elephant in the room is Mr. Johnson– he doesn’t want to address is as follows.

None of his demos or his scientific officers are also addressing it, which is this– it is a multi-layered operation to control cases.

It is not only boosters, so you have your boosters.

You have your seasonal influenza, you need to mitigate in schools, you need to immunise in schools.

“It’s not a big deal to wear your masks in a crowded place where transmission occurs.

So when you do all those things then Christmas is not cancelled.”
