Freedom Day could return us all to house arrest because it's based on the wrong data, says London Medical Laboratory

The London Medical Laboratory says the PM's decision to end lockdown rules is based on the wrong tests. It warns we must measure antibody levels, not just the number of jabs given. Businesses should not just rely on the new certification plan.
PUTNEY, U.K. - July 13, 2021 - PRLog -- Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's announcement confirming the end of compulsory Covid-19 restrictions next Monday, the coronavirus antibody testing expert London Medical Laboratory (LML) is warning the changes will increase the spread of Covid-19. It warns that, far from removing the shackles on society, the measures could result in the return of restrictions and even new lockdowns, because the decision is based on the wrong measurements.

The Government's planned end to legal Covid-19 regulations on mask-wearing in stores and on public transport, together with return to offices, is misguided, warns LML. This is because it's based on data such as the number of people who have been vaccinated, rather than the level of antibodies they have developed.

Dr. Quinton Fivelman, PhD, the Chief Scientific Officer at London Medical Laboratory, has just authored the White Paper 'Has your vaccine worked? Are you immune to Covid-19?'. He warns, 'The Prime Minister's announcement today was notably more cautious in tone than previous statements but, nonetheless, the plans for a return to normality could lead to exactly the opposite – the return of stiffer measures and even new lockdowns.

'The ending of legal requirements on mask-wearing and social distancing, replaced with the hope people will exercise personal judgement, cannot work if Brits do not have the full facts.'

Says Dr. Fivelman: ' The PM revealed a plan for businesses to introduce certification in high risk settings. That should not just mean checking Covid passports, but requiring accurate antibody level tests. Not everyone who has been vaccinated goes on to develop antibodies. We need a clearer idea of the actual level of antibodies individuals have before rolling back the final Covid-19 restrictions.

Explains Dr. Fivelman: 'New "second generation" tests have now been introduced that use a finger-prick blood sample that people can take at home. The new tests confirm whether an individual's immune system has developed IgG antibodies. By providing a quantitative measure of the body's response, they reveal how the immune system has responded to vaccination.'
