The Christmas migration from London’s COVID-19 leads to mass migration

The weekend saw wild scenes of mass migration in London, before the start of the Christmas lockdown and travel ban, fueled by the new, more infectious transformation of Covid-19.

Within hours of Prime Minister Boris Johnson announcing a new top-level lockdown for the capital and surrounding areas – many disruptors said effectively “canceled Christmas” – thousands landed on the streets and train stations were filled.

Witnesses told the Sun that he was leaving London as a “battlefield,” while journalist Harriet Klugsten compared his viralized video to those fleeing Saigon at the end of the Vietnam War at London’s St. Pan Cross station.

“The last train from Saigon,” Klugston wrote With his video Viewed more than 3.1 million times by Sunday morning, “guaranteed maximum damage.”

“As expected, the train is cremated … everyone has a suitcase,” she announced from the train, adding that the social distance would not be “possible” because of how many people were on board.

She admitted that she – like everyone else on the train – had “made a very stupid and irresponsible decision to travel.”

But the last-minute announcement of the lockdown created a “very predictable stampede of people running out of the crowd before the midnight deadline.”

“This has also created crowds of people who are at increased risk of spreading the virus on trains.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock on Sunday slammed the “obviously completely irresponsible behavior” of people rushing to travel before the start of the midnight lockdown.

“People should open their bags if they are full,” he told Sky News.

Hancock insisted the government was forced to take “quick and decisive” action because the new mutation in the coronavirus was “out of control.”

Stress, which accounts for more than 60% of new infections reported in London – seems to be transmitted more than previous types, making it “more important than ever” to control it.

“This is a deadly disease, we need to control it, and this new variant has made it more difficult,” he told Sky.
