New Covid slogan as government throws up hands, face and space
The government must drop the Hands, Face, Space slogan and replace it with a new mantra designed to lift the lockdown, according to reports.
Boris Johnson used short slogans throughout the Covid campaign to convey key messages.
The movement started with the launch of the first lockdown when the Prime Minister told everyone: ‘Stay home, protect the NHS, save lives’.
On May 10 of last year, the message went from Stay Home to “Stay Alert, Control the Virus, Save Lives”
It was later replaced with Hands, Face, Space – reminding people to wash their hands regularly, cover their faces in public, and endure social distancing.
But the rules on masks and distancing in England were removed when the lockdown was last lifted on July 19.
The Times reports that ministers are set to urge people to “go on living” this summer as the “hands, face, space” slogan is dropped.
It comes as positive Covid cases continue to skyrocket with 46,558 new infections recorded on Tuesday, with tens of thousands of cases seen every day this month.
The numbers are the highest since January, when the nation was put on lockdown.
