Today, I visited a meat-selling business just outside Winfrith Newburgh to hear first-hand how this lock-down is affecting business. Eric Sealey and his family run Jurassic Coast Meats and, as you can imagine, are struggling to survive, like so many other small businesses. They need clarity on the 22nd when the PM is due to make a statement on how he plans to re-open the economy. That cannot come fast enough, frankly, and I continue to lobby the Government hard to go further, faster. We simply cannot go on like this, and Eric and his family are the real economic victims here as the private sector takes the brunt of this shutdown. Wearing masks and maintaining our distance, Eric took me on a short tour, chatting as we went. The visit only reinforced my view that the time has come to re-ignite our economy, not least the hospitality sector, to whom Eric supplies. Fingers crossed that we hear some positive news on Monday. There are many other cases like this one that we are hearing from at the moment. Better news is that scientists tracking the epidemic said there has been a "strong decline" in levels of coronavirus infections in England since January. Imperial College London's React study found infections had dropped by two-thirds across England since lock-down began, with an 80 per cent fall in London. But virus levels are still high, with one in 200 testing positive between 4 and 13 February. This is similar to levels seen in late September 2020. Although these are interim findings, based on more than 85,000 swab tests from randomly selected people, they suggest social distancing and restrictions are having an impact. Meanwhile, out in deep space, the American space agency successfully landed its Perseverance rover on Mars in a deep crater near the planet's equator called Jezero. The six-wheeled vehicle will now spend at least the next two years drilling into the local rocks, looking for evidence of past life. Jezero is thought to have held a giant lake billions of years ago. And where there's been water, there's the possibility there might also have been life. The final frontier, eh! Remember that?
