Coronavirus: the British will start opening it in two weeks


The British prime minister will inform the lower house of London on Monday afternoon of the timetable for lifting the restrictions, and a press conference will be held in the evening. In a preliminary statement issued by Downing Street at dawn on Monday, Johnson said the plan he outlines during the day aims to resolve the shortfall with cautious steps.

He stressed that the government has always considered the most important mitigation measure to allow children to return to schools, as this is extremely important not only for their education but also for their mental and physical well-being.

The British government also makes it one of the most important tasks for people to finally meet their loved ones in safe conditions.

Boris Johnson also stressed, however, that each step in lifting the restrictions will be decided on the basis of the latest available data, and the government will be careful not to undermine the progress made so far in curbing the epidemic by sacrificing the population.

That is why the UK government has put together a four-point system of criteria, and all four conditions must be met before any further steps can be taken to ease the restrictions.

Based on this, the process of unblocking can progress if the vaccination program continues successfully, if evidence shows that coronavirus vaccines reduce the number of hospitalizations and coronavirus deaths among vaccinated individuals if current infection rates are not threatened. by increasing the number of patients in need of hospital treatment to an extent that would put unsustainable pressure on the public health service (NHS) or in the absence of a new virus variant that fundamentally changes the perception of risks.

Downing Street said on Monday that all four of these criteria are currently being met, so on March 8, the government will take the first step towards easing restrictions.

According to the London Prime Minister’s Office, the choice was made because the British Government’s Joint Vaccination Committee (JCVI) said that by then some degree of protection would be established in the four most vulnerable populations on the body’s vaccination schedule.

At the top of the JCVI priority vaccination list are residents and carers of nursing homes over 80 years of age and those working in the front lines of health care and care services, followed in chronological order by 75, 70, 65, 60, 55, and finally People over 50 follow.

The first official goal was to have at least the first dose of coronavirus vaccine available to all members of the top four at-risk groups on the JCVI priority list by 15 February, last Monday.

This goal was met one day before the deadline, and JCVI experts say that in this group, protection will develop three weeks after the first dose of the vaccine, at the latest by the March date for the first mitigation measures.

Boris Johnson has previously emphasized that a cautious pace of opening is possible only because the government is determined to make the process of lifting restrictions irreversible and that the current national closure since early January, which is now the third since the epidemic began, be the last such restrictive measure.
