It will go back up tomorrow, but hopefully not as much as previous weeks. Lockdown was effectively over as soon as Johnson defended Cummings, and the protests have put paid to any chance of it being reinstated. Maybe we have to move on from it now, anyway. Only vulnerable groups and their families will take any heed of rules now. Maybe more face coverings used. With any luck we won't see any significant spikes in infection rates, and we can get back to some kind of normal. Hope so, anyway, as I'm sick of the whole thing.
Infection rates have shown a very consistent pattern in falling away. There's no evidence that the official easing has caused a pick up of infections, or indeed willful breaking of lock down. In fact new infections in the community in England are very low, comparatively. Will be sub 300 a day this week.
