Sign this petition on the importance of having timely, accurate, detailed, daily data about the occurrence of variants in the UK.
First published in April 2021.
Parliament should ensure that the appropriate government departments put in place robust arrangements for recording, reporting, tracking, monitoring, scrutiny, and publication of all vital information regarding variants of concern and variants under investigation.
Reports should be published daily.
The Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) recently noted that, “the impact of any importation of new variants will depend on the properties of that variant, in particular the degree of immune escape from vaccine-induced or naturally-acquired immunity”.
This statement emphasises the importance of having timely, accurate, detailed, daily data about the occurrence of variants; including details of how outbreaks are being managed and the actions being taken to protect the public.
