Hopeful exit strategy or next delay? A secret document was leaked in Great Britain according to which a final dismantling of the Covid measures should take place there from March 2022.
As the “Daily Mail“ reported that the British government has developed a comprehensive plan to phase out the anti-Covid measures under the name “Operation Rampdown”.
Its implementation is to start from March 2022, when the current Covid regulations expire. It will probably be officially presented before the end of the year. The 160-page, actually still secret document is based on the insight that that the virus will become endemic, that is, it will repeatedly occur in certain places and / or in certain groups of people. Mutations are also rated as a “very real risk”. It is also the official admission that Corona will remain for an indefinite period of time.
“Operation Rampdown” provides, among other things, that the compulsion to self-isolate for ten days is lifted in the event of an infection. In addition, the £ 37 billion program to identify infected people is said to be cut significantly and instead the fight against Covid should be focused on regional outbreaks and particularly vulnerable facilities. Free Covid tests are to be abolished and private companies are to be given the option of paid tests instead.
Already in January of this year had one Survey by the science magazine “Nature” among 119 immunologists, epidemiologists and virologists from 23 countries, that 89 percent of the specialists surveyed expected the Covid virus to be endemic.
In Austria and the Federal Republic meanwhile, where fascism is currently becoming more endemic, one can only dream of so much scientific objectivity and political readiness for pragmatism and confidence. In Germany, an end to the Covid restrictions had previously been promised in March 2022 – In the meantime, a “re-sharpening” has given oneself the option of an extension for a further three months. It remains to be seen whether Britain will stick to its plans for Operation Rampdown.
