A HARLOW Paralympian and disability rights campaigner has questioned the government’s decision to allow vulnerable people advised to stay home since the coronavirus lockdown to be able to go outdoors again from Monday.
The change means people will be able to go out with members of their household.
Those living alone can meet with someone from another household while maintaining social distancing.
But Anne Wafula-Strike MBE, who competed for Great Britain at the 2004 Paralympics has questioned the decision and believes that the government are ignoring advice given to the them by scientists.
Our interview with Anne is below.
It was good to hear from Anne Wafula-Strike MBE, a strong campaigner on disability rights, talk about the sudden decision for restrictions to be lifted with ‘shielded’ people. Overall it is very sudden decision and doesn’t appear to follow the science. The risks remain, I won’t be going anywhere soon until I am satisfied these risks can be managed.
