On Reporting Scotland and the BBC Scotland website tonight:
The Scottish government has said there will be “ongoing need” for face coverings when all other restrictions are lifted on 9 August.
It said that while measures are “under review” people could still be expected to wear masks on public transport and in shops.
In England, however, wearing masks is soon expected to become a “personal responsibility”.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-57713127
Reporting Scotland went beyond the website report to find a medic who would say that this might be confusing. I suppose if you don’t know which country you are in, you’re confused by a lot of things.
How often have we seen this kind of thing, favouring the Tory English approach which has caused almost twice as many cases and 40% more deaths than in Scotland? I won’t ask whose side they are on. That’s clear and it’s not ours.
In the very last of 22 paragraphs in the full website report:
“But I’m quite a bit happier with the Scottish approach to eventually release everything in August only.”Dr Christine Tait-Burkard, from the University of Edinburgh
And, a link to the BMA calling for the continued use of face masks: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-57703959
Oh well, that’ll be the balance they’re known for unlike those propagandists at RT?
