  1. The UK Government lies about everything . What we have here is the rapid spread of the Indian variant . Which has evolved her into something more deadly . The UK lies about the death rate, deliberately distorts the figures by putting deaths down to other causes and never publishes recovery rates . We still do not know whether the Indian made vaccine is effective . In Germany it appears to have failed efficacity tests. The UK under the Johnson style of Government does not enforce covid health standards and has ineffective testing . However the NSO R figures suggest the pandemic has restarted.
