There’s been a lot of talk in the last few weeks about different nations’ Covid-19 exit plans.
Singapore intends to no longer report case numbers once vaccinations reach a certain level, and Abu Dhabi will ban the unvaxxed from shopping centres. Even Australia, finally, has a basic outline of the way forward.

Essentially, the UK will hope for the best.
