British Prime Minister Boris Johnson presents his plan to cautiously ease the quarantine in Britain, and calls on people to live with the Corona virus.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson affirmed to Parliament yesterday that people should live with the Coronavirus in the long term just as they do with the flu.
He added, “There are no problems with supplies affecting the doses at the present time, and we have a vaccination program and the ability to develop our vaccines.”
This comes after Johnson offered his plan to start easing the restrictions of the quarantine imposed since the beginning of this year.
In this regard, Johnson said that he “has learned from the mistakes of the past and wants a gradual and cautious plan that depends primarily on expanding the base of vaccination against Coronavirus.”
The first phase of quarantine relief will start on March 8, with schools reopening and some types of outdoor social activities permitted. As for the international travel ban from Britain, it will not be lifted before mid-May, and the final assessment of the pandemic situation will be by the summer of June 21.
Last Saturday, the British Ministry of Health announced that the number of Coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom had increased, bringing the total to 4.1 million people, while the total number of deaths reached 120,365.
According to the latest data from the British authorities, nearly 17.3 million people received the first dose of a vaccine against “Covid-19”, while both doses – nearly 605,000.
Earlier this month, the British health authorities announced the possibility of delaying the second dose of the local vaccination campaigns with the “Oxford – AstraZeneca” vaccine for additional weeks instead of adhering to the 21-day deadline.
The “revolutionary” decision would allow millions of new people to be vaccinated and to speed up access to community immunity, rather than focusing efforts on vaccinating people who have already received the first dose.
