The UK's short-term strategy is to drive down cases as much as possible to prevent hospitals being overwhelmed - when you run out of intensive care beds then deaths spike. Once cases are suppressed, it may allow some measures to be lifted for a while - until cases rise and another round of restrictions are needed. When this might be is uncertain.

The UK's chief scientific advisor, Sir Patrick Vallance, said "putting absolute timelines on things is not possible".

Doing this could, unintentionally, lead to herd immunity as more and more people were infected.

"So eventually, if we continued this for two-plus years, maybe a sufficient fraction of the country at that point might have been infected to give some degree of community protection." whats going on in your city?

That only helps if people are responsible. Otherwise the virus breaks out again and an entire community will find itself being locked for two or three weeks.

It's so confusing for me some people act as if the pandemic were some sort of joke.
