I think it’s only fair to quote what Prof Walker said, the last paragraph being particularly relevant. This is from the Mirror:
“Without vaccines, I don’t think getting close to zero is really feasible in the situation now in the UK where we’re effectively endemic, we’ve moved from a pandemic to an endemic situation.
“Long-term lockdown isn’t a viable solution so vaccines are clearly going to be the only way that we are going to have a chance to control this,” she said.
But she did warn that the virus has been good at ‘throwing us curveballs’ and said it could go wrong very quickly.

So, we’re still in a pandemic then
The comment was straightforwardly wrong
“We are now not in a pandemic” is proof that we are in a pandemic. Well done to the P³
