British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Saturday expressed « serious concern » about the rising infections of the Delta variant of the coronavirus and reiterated proposals that he will delay the lifting of England’s last remaining lockdown restrictions.

Prime Minister Johnson announce on Monday whether the planned lifting of restrictions, which would end restrictions on social contact, can be carried out on June 21 according to a planned « roadmap ».

The government had hoped the success of a the world’s fastest vaccine launches would end restrictions on indoor gatherings and the obligation on pubs and restaurants to only offer table service.

But the rapid spread of the Delta COVID-19 variant, first discovered in India has put these plans in jeopardy, which means the government will end the restrictions by a month BC The Daily Telegraph reported.

Although Prime Minister Johnson said officials would continue to investigate the data before making a final decision, he was less optimistic about the situation than he was at the end of May.

« It is It is clear that the variant first discovered in India is more easily transmissible and it is also true that cases are increasing and the number of hospitalizations is increasing, « Prime Minister Johnson told Sky News.

 » Now we do not know exactly how far this is additional mortality, but it is clearly a serious and serious matter. « 

Any delay in the activation of Prime Minister Johnson’s roadmap risks a dispute with some of his party politicians who have spoken out against maintaining the restrictions. </ Karan Bilimoria, President of the Confederation of British Industry, said the companies understood that they were in a health If there is a full two to four week delay, it has to be irreversible: we can't have a stop-start and as long as that is cleared we have to deal with this delay, "he said.

The UK Prime Minister tried to add some optimism by suggesting that the government put no restrictions such as the ban on indoor mixing or the Restaurant closures would reintroduce.

The UK reported 7,738 new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, slightly fewer than the day before when they were the highest since February.

When asked if he was regarding the Easing the lockdown was less optimistic than at the end of May, he said, “Yes, that’s certainly fair.”

Every decision Johnson makes applies only to England, given the decentralized governments make most of the public health decisions in their countries in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Prime Minister Johnson said that following the recent phase of the May lockdown easing, cases were always expected to spike, but key Whether or not all coronavirus restrictions can be lifted will depend on the extent to which the UK vaccine launch is the link between cases and deaths.

The total number of COVID-19 deaths in the UK is over 127,000 but the number of daily deaths has sunk after a third national lockdown and rapid vaccine roll-out. More than three quarters of adults have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
