I don't think so, cases are lowering quite fast, and it seems like herd immunity has finally shown itself working. I think a few restrictions might come back during the winter, but nothing like a lockdown.

I'm not quite so sure myself. Because of how much the economy has suffered due to lockdowns I think they'll only end up starting another lockdown if there is too much pressure on the NHS but with so many people double vaccinated, a lot of them could get COVID and not need to be hospitalized. For instance if we look at when the cases were rising during last month and the start of this month, cases might have been going up but hospitalizations and deaths were staying very low (in the whole scheme of things).
I think what is most likely to happen is that the governments will close certain sectors if they can be linked to cases rising quickly (there's a lot of concern for night clubs etc.) but I don't think there will be another full lockdown myself.

It's a very interesting topic though, thanks.

The impact from the lift of restrictions is not known yet. We will have to see come August, Winter could very well be bad.

i dont think we will have one size fit all lockdown approach as the Govt has been heavily criticised, but we will be 'locked out' on a micro scale e.g if covid cases get too high at work, you will have to WFH etc

The Govt has essentially transferred decision making to businesses and people as they are too stressed to make a decision haha
