It was and is to be expected. Although the Government had to publicise the rules for relaxing the lock-down they made no attempt to explain why the public had to wait 10 days or so (expected decline in infected people), they also made no attempt to show what could happen in terms of increased numbers of cases if people did not wait.

It was crazy to keep swimming pools locked (especially the lidos). From what I can see there is zero science behind it, as all scientists agree that the virus does not survive in chlorinated water. Without some way of cooling off it was all very predictable.
