The Indian virus variant will delay the opening of the UK

The Indian virus variant will delay the opening of the UK

On Monday, Britain eased coronary restrictions. Also on June 21, the country is expected to reopen fully.

This is due to the fastest vaccination program in the world. To date, 70 percent of adults have received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine, and 36 percent have received the second dose, resulting in a steady decline in morbidity and mortality.

But now plans threaten to spin the country’s economic wheels back at full speed.

In a speech on Friday, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the Indian virus was spreading at a dangerous pace and that there were risks of delaying the last step to fully reopen society.

– I think we need to believe that our vaccines will protect the public when the situation is monitored very closely, because the trend between our vaccination program and the virus can be very gentle, says Boris Johnson.

Increases vaccination rate

He announces that the authorities will now expedite the vaccination rate.

Among other things, the time between the first and second doses will be reduced from twelve weeks to eight for risk groups and over 50s. At the same time, priority should be given to those who have not yet received the first dose.

The number of patients with the Indian virus variant has doubled in the past week, the British Public Health Agency reported on Thursday. Out of 520 cases 1313 cases and four died.

More infection

It is also worth noting that the Indian variant is more contagious than the British variant, or the “Kent” variant that has so far dominated the country’s second wave viruses.

However, the spread of the infection has not led to a significant increase in hospital admissions, which can be explained by the fact that more people have been vaccinated, says the country’s chief physician, Chris Witty.

Researchers will now take a map over the next two or three weeks to assess the true impact of the virus.
