Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is “back to/at square one“ and its meaning is “to go back to the beginning (after making no progress); to start all over again; start over”.
Example Sentence: Prof Adam Finn, a member of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, said Times Radio: “We’ve all expected evolution of this virus to occur from the start. I also think that we know from other viruses and previous experience that the immunity that vaccines give won’t just disappear. “It will be a gradual erosion. It won’t be back to square one. I would be really surprised if that happened. So, I think, possibly, that interpretation is a bit pessimistic”.
