Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson may delay the lifting of the remaining coronavirus restrictions in England. This may be due to the new cases reported in England due to the delta variant of the coronavirus. Johnson is going to announce on Monday whether the plan to remove restrictions in lockdown will go ahead after June 21. But the rapidly spreading delta variant has raised concerns. According to the report of the Daily Telegraph, due to this, the removal of restrictions can be delayed by a month.
If PM Boris delays by a month in removing the restrictions, then the lockdown in England which ends on June 19 will end on July 19. The government has always said that it will decide the process of unlocking on the basis of data. At the same time, this week the British Prime Minister had also given a warning in view of the increasing cases. The governments of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland make most of the public health decisions within their jurisdiction. Because of this, the decision to remove the restrictions in these places is with the governments here. On the other hand, the PM’s office has not commented on the news of increasing the lockdown.
Most infected found in a day after February
On Friday, 8,125 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Britain. This is the highest number of infected reported on a single day after February. Due to this, information was also received about the increase in ‘R’ number. This showed that the corona epidemic is increasing rapidly in Britain. PM Johnson said that since the lockdown restrictions were eased in May, there was a possibility that there could be an increase in new cases. But the key to whether all coronavirus restrictions can be ended will be whether the UK’s rapid vaccination has reduced the number of new cases and deaths.
More than one lakh people died of corona
The number of people who lost their lives to COVID-19 in Britain is more than 1,27,000. But every day there is a sharp decline in the number of people who lose their lives from COVID. This happened because of the nationwide lockdown. Apart from this, vaccination also played a major role in this. More than three-fourths of adult people in the country have been vaccinated. In this way, Britain is trying to control the epidemic through vaccination. However, now the new cases have once again worried the government.
