Boris is right a second lockdown could cripple UK economy.

Anthony Costello (ex who expert) has sensationally claimed that there’re 38k cases of covid infections taking place daily in UK, and there have been claims about lack of testing too. It is due to these claims that Chief Medical Officer for England Chris Whitty is pushing for a 2 week strict lockdown, but Boris is resisting this and like it or not I feel that he’s taking the correct decision at this stage. While I understand that covid effects are dangerous, but UK’s economy currently is fragile, and shutting it now could completely cripple whatever is left of their economy, hence I support Boris call that UK should not do a fresh lockdown.

But it's fine for the Cumbrics (Manchester and Yorkshire) to have to go through a month of a lockdown?.

Nimby (not in my back yard) culture has returned then apparently....

So their intent was just to cripple the North... Nice!

Phasing in and out of lockdown might be possible for reducing spread. A month of people socialising like normal followed by a 2 week lockdown (or even people socialising like normal and isolating for 3 days afterwards)...

UK has got around 38K covid-19 cases on regular basis. With this Boris coming up with the statement of lockdown crippling the economy is true. Already governments suffer a lot to recover from the economic downfall. In my country we've got more than 80k covid-19 cases regularly. Our Prime Minister is clear on his decision, there is no more lockdown anymore. Upon this I don't find the statement of Boris a big thing.

I bet after the second lockdown (if implemented), there will be the third, fourth, and so on. Lockdown doesn't work except the military strictly disallows people to get out or get shot on sight. And after all the hassle and obvious massive economic problems, it takes only one zombie to infect the people.

I think Boris's decision wasn't mainly motivated by the economy, but just common sense and for liberty reason.

80k is big there is a need for lockdown if it happens regularly, the econmony can soon to survive but the lives of the people mlatters at these Time, but if the people will not still follow any protocols or observed their self and surroundings to keep them safe then better not do it and prioritize recovering the economy.
Boris may come up to the idea of lockdown to flatten or atleast lower the number of people infected but it will only be useless if it will not be implemented stricter that before or make it more stricter so the virus will not spread fast.

I can tell you that if testing is romped up these expert will still tell you that we need another lock down. Most of these so called expert have never experience limelight like this before and they are enjoying it because people are talk their opinion serious, once this is over they are forgotten. Boris should resist this and wait for vaccine or herd immunity take over

There are two reasons Johnson is taking steps to lean more towards the economy than on health. This is due to his overconfidence in the discovery of the vaccine and in fact, Johnson is a supporter of herd immunity. Not much different from Trump, who initially considered that a pandemic is a natural selection, in the end it is the strong who can survive. According to Johnson, freedom creates happiness which eventually becomes antibodies to fight the virus. Learning from China, Taiwan, Vietnam, New Zealand, the keys to handling a pandemic are experience, leadership, management & technology.

Crippling the economy is different and Saving people is another.

-lockdown is essential!!
-the jobs have to be shifted virtually
-jobs needs to be created in a bigger number now
-the wages have to be above a certain minimum
-people should be provided with less interest rates
-EMI and such things should be halted for a while
-It is needed to do more tests
-Vaccination will take a while thus I do believe we are in here for like 2 years

Lock down is essential but complete lockdown is very unnecessary , what we need is adaptive lockdown.

In the US, I'd say don't even bother. It won't work. Half the country will ignore all the rules, enforcement will be nonexistent just like the first time around, and the economy will be bludgeoned to death for little to no benefit.

But in the UK, maybe? It worked the first time around, didn't it?

Spain and France look even worse than the UK:

...although death rates are better this time around. If we do see another round of lockdowns, it'll shake the markets hard. It would be a great catalyst for a selloff in stock markets, and therefore also in BTC.

The new lockdown will only worsen the economy of the city or state...
Not only that, of course, the new Lockdown will also only turn citizens against the government because there is no certainty that the Lockdown is effective. Boris made the right decision.
