From 15 June, bus and train commuters in England could be refused travel if they fail to comply with the measures - or face a fine.
But according to the BMA, this...Utter nonsense, because there is 'some evidence of a benefit, but it remains fairly weak'..?
...should be extended to all areas where social distancing is not possible.Oh.
BMA council chair Dr Chaand Nagpaul also questioned why the introduction of these measures has been delayed - adding that the risk posed by coronavirus would be "much less" if the public starts wearing face coverings immediately.Do you think we've all forgotten that when this started the medical establishment were advocating that there was no evidence of any benefit to it?
Announcing the plans, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps had said "we need to ensure every precaution is taken" as England relaxes the lockdown further, and passenger numbers start to increase once again.
The government says face coverings are "marginally beneficial as a precautionary measure".And that's a reason to change our entire way of life and render CCTV on public transport useless?
