London – Reuters
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, Tuesday, that he was very optimistic that all restrictions of “Covid-19” in England will expire on June 21, and confirmed that the government would conduct a review on the use of vaccine certificates.
Johnson unveiled an exit map from the lockdown in England on Monday that would keep some companies closed until the summer, saying caution is necessary to ensure that setbacks do not occur.
“I am optimistic,” Johnson told reporters when asked about a deadline for June 21 to end restrictions. “But it is clear that nothing can be guaranteed.” I am very optimistic that we will be able to get there. ”
Provide the initial dose
With nearly 130,000 deaths, Britain, the fifth-highest official death toll in the world, has suffered from the pandemic, and its economy has seen its largest collapse in more than 300 years.
But within two months, it had already delivered a first dose of the vaccine to more than a quarter of the population, which is the fastest spread of any large country, making it a test case for governments around the world hoping to return life to normal.
Some in Johnson’s Conservative Party questioned whether the timetable for reopening would have been faster, given the success so far in introducing the vaccine in Britain.
Earlier, Health Secretary Matt Hancock said safety was the priority.
“We are all absolutely determined to get out of this as quickly as possible safely, but not faster,” Hancock said via Sky News.
The roadmap in place indicates that restrictions on nightclubs and big events will be the last to be lifted on June 21, although the government has stressed that reopening will be based on data, not dates.
Johnson also said that Michael Gove will lead a review to ask the “scientific, ethical and philosophical” question of vaccination certificates for those who received the Coronavirus vaccine, which could facilitate the reopening of entertainment and hospitality places.
“There are deep and complex issues that we need to explore,” he said. Ethical issues about the government’s role in authorizing all people to have such a thing. We cannot discriminate against people who, for whatever reason, cannot get the vaccine. There may be medical reasons why people do not get a vaccine, and some people may really refuse to get the vaccine. ”
