In the coming hours, Britain is expected to publish statistics confirming a three-fold increase in Indian mutation cases. Thus, the deadline for final dismantling in Britain, scheduled for June 21, could see another shift. Prime Minister Boris Johnson did not deny that this version was on the table.
Thursday to Rate “There are a number of things we can do, and we don’t rule out anything,” he said. He added that he remains optimistic about the planned dismantling as of Monday and hopes that the next phase will actually take place on June 21. However, he refused to rule out speculation about local lockdowns in outbreaks.
In some English areas, the Indian virus is spreading widely and will be the subject of discussion between experts and ministers in the coming days. “It’s a concern, we’re worried about it,” Johnson said. “At the moment, there is a very wide range of scientific opinions about what could happen. We want to make sure that we are taking all prudent and prudent steps that are being presented, so that the meetings take place today to look at exactly what we need to do. “.
According to a report released by the Public Health Office of England (PHE) on Thursday, there has been a sharp increase in the number of confirmed cases of Coronavirus B.1.617.2 mutations in the UK. He was captured for the first time in India. The total number increased by 793 cases compared to the 520 confirmed cases of this variant reported last week. Last Friday, PHE called B.1.617.2 a “variant of concern” due to evidence that it is more transmissible than the original coronavirus.
The British can meet for the first time on Monday indoors in groups of six. And while they will celebrate Independence Day anywhere else in the world, on June 21, all procedures in England must cease to function. “At the moment, I don’t see anything discouraging me from thinking that we will be able to dismantle on Monday and June 21. But there are things that we need to do locally, and if we get that advice, we won’t hesitate.” On whether the veil commitment and social distancing will also stop the application, Johnson added that he will be outlining more details soon.
“I think we have to wait a little longer to see what the data looks like, but I’m cautiously optimistic about that, and assuming this Indian alternative doesn’t start spreading like some fear, I think things could come back much, much closer,” said the prime minister.
Also, a meeting of the governmental committee of senior SAGE scholars will be held on Thursday to discuss the Indian alternative with the ministers. Researchers believe that the third wave, if any, would be much smaller due to the effectiveness of vaccines. A member of the SAGE team, Professor Adam Kocharsky, said the real data indicated a somewhat “optimistic scenario”. “After reopening, there may be an increase in the number of cases. However, the resulting effect may be relatively low if we keep the vaccination program on the right track and do not find variants that could bypass immunity.”
