At the moment, the dismantling plan has not changed. Britain’s new health minister, Sajid Javid, on Monday maintained the government’s goal of lifting on July 19 the last restrictions still in place in England to deal with the coronavirus.
But health authorities are concerned. After months of subsidence, the epidemic has accelerated sharply in recent weeks, with more than 22,000 new cases recorded on Monday. This outbreak has been attributed to the delta variant, which is more contagious and is now dominant in the UK. The surge identified in India has already led to a month delay in the latest lifting of restrictions, which was initially planned on June 21.
“We see no reason to go beyond July 19th.” In keeping with the recent restrictions, Sajid Javid said, in his first address to MPs as Health Minister. The weekend was marked by the resignation of his predecessor, Matt Hancock, who admitted to breaching health restrictions after the press revealed an affair with a counsellor.
“no date” will not accompany him “Zero risk” Regarding Covid-19, “We know we can’t eliminate it, we have to live with it”, he added Sajid Javed. By July 19, the government, which launched a massive vaccination campaign in December, had set its goal of vaccinating two-thirds of adults. Currently, 62% of them have been fully vaccinated.
