Journalist and commentator Nina Myskow lashed out at the decision by the Government to abandon mandatory face masks. While speaking on Jeremy Vine Ms Myskow argued it was lunacy to remove so many coronavirus restrictions while cases continue to rise. While noting that deaths have gone down considerably, she argued that as cases reach the hundred thousands, hospitalisations and deaths will follow.

Ms Myskow said: “With the cases rising, if we get to 100,000 daily cases as they are talking about then proportionality hospitalisation will increase.

“You keep saying it doesn’t end in deaths so it is all okay, it is not okay.

“This will overwhelm the NHS.

“The scientists have been saying this is not going well, be careful, this is a terrible risk.

“Everybody is saying you have got to be careful.

“It is a complete gamble and a risk and I think it is complete lunacy.”

Boris Johnson has been warned against the unlocking of the country on July 19 due to the ongoing battle with covid.

Dr Nagpaul told LBC: “A July 19 reopening is dangerous.

“It is dangerous because it is showing that the soaring cases in Covid are actually at the moment translating to the increases in hospitalisation.

“They have reduced but they are increasing significantly.

“This is including an increased number of people suffering with long-Covid.

“It really does not make sense.

“There is no comparison with any other nation in the world of deciding to remove all restrictions at a time of soaring rates.”

The Government has insisted they will give clear guidance on face masks and will still work to manage the spread of coronavirus.

Junior Health Minister Edward Argar told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “When we move to step 4 we will see the falling away of legal obligations and legal restrictions towards personal and corporate responsibility, based on clear and strong guidance, and people will make their own judgments.”

Boris Johnson is going to address the nation at 5pm on Monday and is expected to still recommend that face masks be worn indoors and in crowded spaces despite it no longer being a legal requirement.
