Matt Hancock dismisses looser lockdown rules, as debate begins in the House of Commons

Published on October 13, 2020 by

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has spoken against calls for an immediate resumption of ‘life as normal’ for everyone except those who are ‘vulnerable’.

The so-called Great Barrington declaration, signed by leading experts from the universities of Oxford, Nottingham, Edinburgh, Exeter, Cambridge, Sussex and York, suggests herd immunity as a way forward.

Critics say the declaration ignores the growing evidence on ‘long COVID’, where otherwise healthy individuals who contract the virus are left with debilitating long-term symptoms, sometimes for months after a mild infection.
