Yesterday, the British Parliament published a report on the government’s handling of the health crisis. Since this summer, the country has eliminated nearly all barrier gestures such as turning away and wearing masks.

The UK has recorded nearly 138,000 deaths

The report’s authors point to one of the biggest public health failures in the country’s history: gross errors and a certain capacity in the face of the development of Covid-19, having recorded nearly 138,000 deaths.

Finally, some measures appear to have been adopted without scientific basis, such as banning outdoor sports activities for children.
