(Monday) 19 July 2021 - it seemed appropriate to change the image at the top of this log from Lockdown to Danger Ahead. 

Many of the legal restrictions were removed from 11.55 pm on 18 July even though infections with the Delta variant were rising together with increasing hospitalisations and deaths. 68.3% of the UK's adult population had received two doses of vaccine. Under 18s have not been offered any form of vaccination.  It was reported that the vaccination rate had fallen - a fact that was clear from the available government data.
