‘I have butterflies in my stomach.’ As the Scotland Covid limitations are lifted, Nicola Sturgeon admits to being “nervous.”
Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister, acknowledged she had “butterflies” as Scotland lifts the majority of its legal coronavirus restrictions, despite critics claiming the decision was made too close to the start of the school year.
Nicola Sturgeon was asked by Ben Shepherd of Good Morning Britain if she was concerned by the relaxation of Scotland’s coronavirus restrictions, despite an increase in cases over the weekend and the proximity of schools returning. After the summer holidays, students are expected to return to school around August 19, leaving only two weeks before the restrictions are lifted. Ms Sturgeon, on the other hand, admitted to feeling nervous and said she has “butterflies” hope the decision was the right one.
Ms Sturgeon appeared on Good Morning Britain to talk about level 0 lifting and answer concerns about the epidemic.
However, level 0 did not imply that there were no limits in place, and lifting it did not imply that all restrictions had been lifted.
Some required mask wearing remains in schools and public transportation, and it will be reassessed in the coming weeks.
Mr Shephard inquired about Ms Sturgeon’s feelings about the decision, saying, “Is there a small worry, Nicola Sturgeon, about the fact that the case seems to increase a little bit over the weekend week on week?”
“As well as the proximity of the relaxation of limitations to when the children return to school north of the border, which they do, of course, sooner than ours here in England.
“Some parents are concerned that we are doing this too soon, as the kids are going to return to school, and that the figures will mix together and the figures will rise again.”
“So yeah, I think there will always be apprehension when we eliminate limitations after such a lengthy period,” Ms Sturgeon responded.
“To be honest, I have some butterflies in my stomach about it, but I believe now is the best time to do it.
“Our case counts fluctuate on a daily basis, but the trend is downward, and the vaccination, of course, provides great protection.
“So now is the time to lift legal constraints in order to restore some semblance of normalcy in our lives.”
On August 1st, the limitations were lifted. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
