'No Evidence' Of Covid-19 Second Wave In UK, Says Top Oxford Scientist
There is “no evidence” of a second wave of coronavirus and the government cannot afford a “harsh” second lockdown, a top scientist has said. Professor Carl Heneghan, director for the centre of evidence-based medicine at Oxford University, called for Boris Johnson to take a “a slower, analytical approach” ahead of a “long winter” beset by Covid-19 and other flu-like infections. It comes after the prime minister warned a second wave “is coming” on Friday, as he hinted further restrictions were likely to follow this week. On Friday, the “R” rate of the virus jumped to between 1.1 and 1.4, with the number of daily infections reaching more than 4,000 on Friday. But Heneghan told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge on Sunday: “There’s no evidence right now of what’s called a second wave.”Asked if Johnson was wrong to claim there was, he added it was was “complicated” science for ministers, saying: “This is a seasonal effect now, if it becomes worse and it impacts on disease, then yes, that’s the point when we have restrictive measures, but that time is not now.”He went on to caution that the country must swerve “harsh measures” immediately to curb the spread of Covid-19, adding: “What we have to do now is slow down, this is a long winter.”He said: “What we’re seeing is that the virus is operating in a seasonal way.“As we’ve gone back to schools, actually what’s happened now is we’ve seen about a 60% increase in consultations for all the acute respiratory infections and that’s what’s driving the problems in the Test and Trace programme.“All the young children who have coughs and colds and these infections, one is called rhinovirus.“As we look at the data, Covid is operating in a similar seasonal way, and mirroring those respiratory infections, so what we have to do now is slow down, this is a long winter.“We can’t afford to go now with harsh measures … the impact on the economy here is going to be significant.”  Health secretary Matt Hancock, meanwhile, said there was a danger the infection rate could “shoot through the roof” if people did not follow the new “rule of six” on social gatherings.Further national lockdown is possible if people do not follow rules, says Health Secretary Matt Hancock#Marr#Covid_19https://t.co/DhwF19ofUVpic.twitter.com/oGnMPWlUez— BBC Politics (@BBCPolitics) September 20, 2020It also follows ministers announcing a new £10,000 fine for those who fail to self-isolate. Speaking to Sky News, Hancock said: “I am very worried about this second wave. “We have seen in other countries around Europe how it can absolutely shoot through the roof.”Adding he was “very worried”, he hinted a second national lockdown was possible. “The nation faces a tipping point.”He added: “We have a choice. Either everybody follows the rules – the rule of six and the need to self-isolate if you have a positive test or if you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace – or we will have to take more measures.”The health secretary also said it is still possible there could be a coronavirus vaccine before the end of the year.“There is still hope that we will get one of the vaccines over the line this year. The Oxford vaccine is still at the front of the queue. More likely is next year, and probably the early part of next year,” he told BBC1’s The Andrew Marr Show.“We have got the cavalry coming over the next few months – the vaccine, the mass testing and the improvements in treatments – but we have got to all follow the rules between now and then to keep people safe.”Labour leader Keir Starmer has said he will support the government should it impose a second lockdown, but blamed the government’s failure to get a grip of testing for the recent spike in cases. Related...

Faith Healer review – bittersweet showbiz memories are full of magic
Old Vic, LondonMichael Sheen, Indira Varma and David Threlwall are a spellbinding trinity for Brian Friel’s powerful monologuesThe Old Vic’s livestream of Faith Healer – with the divine cast of Michael Sheen, Indira Varma and David Threlfall – begins by revealing rows of unfilled seats. What does it mean to stage a play in an empty theatre, no matter how many are watching on Zoom? Director Matthew Warchus frequently accentuates the emptiness to bring out elements of Brian Friel’s four monologues, shared by three characters who colour in or contradict each other’s stories.The desolate auditorium reflects the times itinerant faith healer Frank (Sheen) sweeps out village halls and waits for the arrival of his audience who, as his partner Grace (Varma) remembers, would frequently number fewer than half a dozen. The absence adds poignancy to the bittersweet showbiz recollections of Frank’s manager, Teddy (Threlfall), whose theatrical flourishes reveal a craving for an audience or at least a bit of company. Perhaps you’ve heard of his previous act, Rob Roy, the bagpipe-blowing whippet? There is silence from the stalls. Continue reading...

The rise of fashion rental
Owning clothes is so last year. Rental platforms have been the industry’s 2020 success storyCast your mind back to this time last year, pre-pandemic, when a £39.99 polka-dot dress from Zara was the only viral fashion phenomenon getting all the headlines. In retrospect, it’s fair to say that its arrival, and swift departure from the shop floor, was probably when must-have-but-will-probably-wear-once culture reached its divisive peak; lauded by fast fashion conglomerates, lambasted by the eco-conscious.Was it really necessary for everyone to own the same dress, asked the critics. What pleasure lies in wearing exactly the same thing as at least three other women in the office? Why don’t people just buy it and, you know, share it? Continue reading...

Patti Smith: 'I feel the unrest of the world in the pit of my stomach'
The rock star and poet on solitude, her lifelong friend Sam Shepard, and writing her latest memoirPatti Smith, rock star, poet, visual artist and writer, won the 2010 National book award with her memoir Just Kids. The Year of the Monkey, her moving postscript – about loss, serendipity, friendship and hope – is out now in paperback (Bloomsbury).Did you plan The Year of the Monkey or did it almost write itself?Truthfully, I had no goal. It was the end of 2015. I’d had concerts at the Fillmore in San Francisco and was supposed to go on a trip with my good friend Sandy Pearlman. But he had an accident and was in a coma and I was without a plan. I don’t drive, so decided to linger to be in his proximity and, being alone, started keeping a journal. I find writing a journal is like having an imaginary friend. Continue reading...
