Covid: UK has a plan for winter

The British government published document In which he explains the antiviral plan for the coming months: With the onset of cold weather, there is likely to be an increase in cases and therefore in hospitals, which will have to be mitigated at least in part by the effect of vaccinations.

Or the vaccine’s immune effect may wear off soon (as some preliminary studies have been done in United kingdomAnd Israel NS Qatar), making a necessary booster dose for the elderly (more vulnerable and have been vaccinated several months ago). We can only do our part, and continue to take the necessary precautions – especially now that with the arrival of the cold, social life will take place in enclosed spaces – and hopefully the vaccination campaign will continue also in other parts of the world, to limit a once and for all the progress of the virus and prevent it from mutating The birth of new variables.
