COVID INFECTIONS NOT RISING AS WORST-CASE SCENARIO PROJECTED

Coronavirus infections are not following a predicted pattern which would see a nightmare scenario.

Last week, Sir Patrick Vallance and Professor Chris Whitty painted a bleak picture with cases doubling every seven days – but new analysis has revealed new infections of coronavirus are not rising quite as quickly as the experts feared.

The worrying possibility was presented using data from September 15, with 3,105 cases reported.

And while in the following days the country has seen the highest rise in new infections in months with cases tipping over 6,000, we have not yet started to see the scale of a rise experts worried about.

LET UNIVERSITY STUDENTS GO HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, LABOUR URGES GOVERNMENT

University students must be allowed to return home to their families at Christmas, Labour has said, amid fears that coronavirus outbreaks could keep young people in halls when term ends.

Thousands of students are currently confined to their rooms following a surge in cases at institutions including Glasgow, Manchester Metropolitan and Edinburgh Napier.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock last week declined to rule out asking students to stay on campus over Christmas, after Government scientific adviser Sir Mark Walport said the measure may be needed to stop the virus spreading to older relatives.

Shadow education secretary Kate Green has written to her opposite number Gavin Williamson, urging him to “promise” students that such restrictions will not be imposed.

She said it would be “deeply unfair to see students forced to remain in their student accommodation” and asked Mr Williamson to “work with universities to ensure every student has access to testing to allow a safe journey home” for Christmas.

PM DITCHED SECOND LOCKDOWN TO SAVE SUNAK

The Prime Minister ditched plans for a second national lockdown over fears the Chancellor would quit.

After a crucial summit Mr Sunak sought a one-to-one meeting with the PM and make it clear he “wouldn’t wear it”.

A senior MP said: “There were fears he would find it difficult to carry on if he was ignored.

“It was all down to the Chancellor that we avoided delivering a hammer blow to the economy and took a more balanced approach instead. Rishi saved the day.”

TOP SCIENTISTS CONSIDERED PLAN FOR EVERYONE OVER 45 TO SHIELD

However, the idea was eventually advised against as it was considered unlikely to be successful – but it is still being kept under review.

It follows a similar plan to potentially target over-50s with another lockdown.

Mr Entwisle, who’s also an EasyJet captain, reportedly made the comment after a meeting with the airline’s chief financial officer, Andrew Findlay.

During the presentation to Balpa members, Mr Entwisle added: “I think the easiest way to put it is that the company is hanging by a thread.

“If we don’t have a good summer next summer and make a considerable amount of money, we really are going to be out of a job.”
