Lord Frost, who resigned form the government over his opposition to COVID restrictions, asserts that ‘Plan B’ measures in the UK can’t be considered “lifted” until rules on face masks are totally eliminated.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce later today that most Plan B restrictions will end next week.
The measures are being lifted after claims from government advisors that Omicron could lead to 6,000 deaths a death without further lockdown restrictions were proven wildly inaccurate.
However, some reports say that while Johnson will do away with COVID passports and work from home advice, he is planning to keep mask mandates in place.
Lord Frost blasted the plans in a tweet earlier today.
It is good news if the Cabinet does decide this morning to lift some "Plan B" restrictions.
But the job isn't done if mask wearing remains in place. The evidence for masks is weak & the many downsides are persistently discounted.
All Plan B measures need lifting *for good*.

“It is good news if the Cabinet does decide this morning to lift some “Plan B” restrictions,” he wrote.
“But the job isn’t done if mask wearing remains in place. The evidence for masks is weak & the many downsides are persistently discounted.”
“All Plan B measures need lifting *for good*.”
All the measures are supposed to legally sunset on January 26, so whether Johnson will be forced to pass a new vote in parliament to keep mask mandates remains to be seen.
The last time the PM had to get approval for restrictions, he faced a humiliating rebellion from scores of Tory MPs, and can expect a similar fate in even greater numbers if he tries to keep mask rules.
The UK government’s own investigation found that the evidence for the efficacy of face masks stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools is “not conclusive.”
According to University of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith, when England dropped face mask mandates back in July and Scotland maintained them, it made “no meaningful difference” to infection rates.
We previously highlighted the comments of UK government SAGE adviser Dr Colin Axon, who dismissed masks as “comfort blankets” that do virtually nothing, noting that the COVID-19 virus particle is up to 5,000 times smaller than the holes in the mask.
“The small sizes are not easily understood but an imperfect analogy would be to imagine marbles fired at builders’ scaffolding, some might hit a pole and rebound, but obviously most will fly through,” Axon said.
As we highlight in the video below, other Conservative MPs are warning Johnson that he would be “mad” to keep mask mandates in place.
