If Germany are feeling the effects within days of relaxing their lockdown despite having around a quarter of the number of deaths, just imagine how much worse it's going to be here. People have been partying over the bank holiday weekend, parks have been full and even the restrictions are supermarkets are not being enforced as strongly as they were before.
