Lockdown Lifted in Britain But the Fear Resists

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – The lockdown officially lifted on Saturday (July 4) across Britain after nearly 15 weeks, although people had been casting a blind eye to the restrictions way before this. Call it lockdown fatigue or the Dominic Cummings effect, but after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s chief adviser caused a national uproar six weeks ago by justifying his repeated breaking of restrictions, more people have started to embrace, at best, the spirit, rather than the letter, of the guidelines, and at worst, ignoring them altogether, the Straits Times reported.
