Government reportedly reviewing Covid exit strategy

Monday, Nov 15, 2021 0

The government has reportedly formulated a Covid exit plan to end self-isolation and testing by next spring.

Dubbed Operation Rampdown, it is part of an extensive review of the current ‘test, trace and isolate’ policy by the Health Security Agency.

The 160-page leaked dossier looks at scrapping self-isolation and ass testing as Covid will be ‘endemic’ for years, health experts say.

These protocols will be rolled back by next April, according to a government source.

The report states "We will no longer be prioritising the previous objectives of breaking chains of transmission at all costs."

This comes as other countries reactivate restrictions such as the Netherlands, because of rising cases.

"It’s totally over in the minds of ministers. But what happens if a new variant arrives and they have just shut down the whole national infrastructure?" the source said.

Meanwhile, the booster rollout is racing ahead with more than two million getting booster shots in the past week.
