JUST IN: Cigarette and alcohol ban to remain until lockdown ends

Published

on

The government has just tweeted that the ban on alcohol and tobacco products will remain in place “for the entire duration of the restriction”.

The data referred to is that 2% of cases of people with knife wounds are admitted to the ward and stay there for an average period of 5 days. A link is drawn between knife wounds and the use of alcohol – statistics that are not immediately verifiable. 

The impact of people being hit with a blunt object is apparently worse, government statistics say. Of the 72% of cases admitted to hospitals, a quarter must be admitted to the intensive care unit. They then stay there for an average of 9 days.
