….it is very likely we’ll get to above a thousand hospitalizations today. It could be a quite a lot higher than that, and there will be deaths, of course, associated with that. I think it’s laid out very clearly in the papers as to what the risks are associated with that. Opening up into an increasing wave, as predicted, will lead to a further increase. I think that’s very clear.
