“We are still at the most dangerous stage of an epidemic that has killed more than 120,000 people,” Martin Hewitt, chairman of the National Council of Police Chiefs, warned today.
“Eleven months later, in a national prison again, the rules are so clear, it’s disgusting to us,” Hewitt added, concluding that “there are a small number of completely irresponsible people who do not respect their safety or the safety of others.”
