The Prime Minister has already faced a widespread backlash against the policy of closing bars and restaurants in the worst-affected areas, which is expected to be confirmed on Monday.
Representatives In the “red wall” circles He said that this policy would put large numbers of bars and restaurants out of work, while the elected mayors, who had regular discussions with ministers, said he had “lost the dressing room.”
While ministers were quick to justify this policy, 149 lawmakers from all parties in the North and Midlands were called for a “scientific briefing” on the latest data.
But they claimed they were offered “no-nonsense” characters who are too selective to “retrospectively” prove the need for lockdown.
The briefing, provided by Minister of Health Edward Argar and Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer, included a Cabinet Office document labeled “Sensitive Official” and which included a table of unpublished data marked “Early Analysis.”
It claimed that 29.8 percent of coronavirus exposures occurred in bars and restaurants, with only 2.6 percent of infections occurring in people’s homes.
However, official testing and tracking numbers released by the NHS showed that 75.3 percent of the transfers occurred at home, with only 5.5 percent occurring in bars, restaurants and churches.
And the Ministry of Health admitted that the numbers presented to the deputies “do not provide us with any conclusive conclusions about the location of the virus.”
A spokesperson explained this discrepancy by saying that contact tracing identified 75 percent of people who had contacts at home, but this “enhanced” tracing indicated that the place of infection was likely to be hosted.
The data for the bars was based on only 98 cases in which two or more infected people reported being in the same place, with no evidence that this is where they contracted the virus.
