With numbers as they are at the moment it would be good to evaluate what measures are still useful and required and which can be binned, at least for now.
It would also be good to have a world beating track and trace system; with Harding gone would it be reasonable that she left after making sure it is running pukka?
The biggest risk of mutations is now not the UK but places where the virus is running amok; a new variant has been identified yet again in Brazil; they are also set to overtake total death numbers from the US.
But what appears to emerge clearly is that vaccinating and allowing those vaccinated to go about their business as pre march 2020 is pretty safe.
