Lol no

Chemenger Sat 04-Apr-20 18:31:56

No, no signs of that being a possibility

BoswellsBollocks Sat 04-Apr-20 18:31:59

No chance.

Not a chance

No chance. We’re likely to peak in many areas in the next two weeks (certainly that’s being predicted in my area).

not a chance imo

At least another 3 weeks after this first 3 week period.

Why does he think that?
What are your thoughts, OP?
Which restrictions does he think will be lifted?
If they end lock down next week, there will be a huge increase in new infections, just as we’re reaching the peak of Corona patients being admitted to hospital, IMHO.

Is he on glue?! No. No. No.

Absolutely not.

It's being reviewed after a 3 week period, not ended.

The virus hasn't peaked here yet so it's more likely the restrictions will be increased if deaths keep rising rather than ended.

LuckyLuckyWoman Sat 04-Apr-20 18:35:04

following on from this, when do you think the government will announce the extension?

ThanosSavedMe Sat 04-Apr-20 18:35:15

Well if the powers that be decide to go back to the original plan of thousands dying then yes but I think they decided that wasn’t a good plan. So no

WaktiWapnasi Sat 04-Apr-20 18:36:05

Nopity nope. Not a hope.

I personally think we have another 8 weeks of this at least and I don't think schools will be back until at least the autumn term

@LuckyLuckyWoman I’m not sure! Possibly Sunday? I’m sure my DP is the only person that thinks it will end next week!

Yes. In practical terms anyway.
Officially, it will probably get extended. But so many people have interpreted the lockdown as a 3 week period that it will become even more difficult to enforce.

MrsJakeLovell Sat 04-Apr-20 18:38:28

Absolutely not - just spoke with someone who has had to clear our their place of work as it is being changed to a field hospital and they were told they would be out for at least 6 months...

Chrisinthemorning Sat 04-Apr-20 18:38:35

No. Peak starts next week and will last 6-8 weeks. Lockdown will end when we start going down the other side of the curve.
