Loose Women regular Carol McGiffin has claimed the national lockdown is “no longer about a virus” in a Twitter thread criticising the current Covid-19 restrictions.
The 61-year-old broadcaster tweeted on Friday to mark her final appearance on the show before the first national lockdown forced it to adopt a socially distanced format.
McGiffin noted that she commented on that show about her scepticism around whether a lockdown would actually suppress the virus.
She added that the country has “lost its collective marbles over a virus with a 99+% survival rate” and said freedoms are being lost.
“So much damage has been done by these endless and largely unnecessary restrictions that it seems almost irreparable,” McGiffin said.
