British Prime Minister Boris Johnson
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday extended the end of all lockdown-related restrictions by four more weeks till July 19. Earlier these restrictions were going to end on June 21. Johnson said that due to the delta nature of the coronavirus, there remains concern about the increase in the number of cases of infection and hospitalization.
With this announcement of the Prime Minister, now ‘Freedom Day’ will be celebrated on 19th July which is to be celebrated in the joy of ending the lockdown. Johnson said that it would be better to wait a little longer. At the same time, he expressed hope that July 19 will be the last day to end the restrictions and there will be no need to extend it further.
Will speed up the second dose of Corona
The Prime Minister said that now we will accelerate the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine to people above 40 years of age so that they can get maximum protection from the virus. Let us tell you that the concern of infection in Britain has increased in the Delta variant of Corona. On Friday, 8,125 new cases of COVID-19 were reported in Britain. This was the highest number of infected a day after February.
Number of deaths decreasing due to lockdown
PM Johnson had said that since the lockdown restrictions were eased in May, there was a possibility that there could be an increase in new cases. He said that the key to whether all coronavirus restrictions could be ended would be whether rapid vaccination in Britain resulted in a reduction in the number of new cases and deaths.
The number of people who lost their lives to COVID-19 in Britain is more than 1,27,000. However, there is a sharp decline in the number of people who lose their lives from COVID every day. This has happened due to the nationwide lockdown. Apart from this, vaccination has also played a major role in this.
