UK: Government spokesperson, no decision yet on possible extension of COVID restrictions

London, 05 June 11:34 – (Nova Agency) – The UK government has not yet taken any decision on the possible postponement of the planned relaxation of anti-Covid restrictions from June 21. This was stated by a government spokesman in a statement carried by the British “Sky News” station. “As the Prime Minister (Boris Johnson) said, at the moment we cannot see anything in the data to suggest that we need to deviate from the roadmap. We are continuing to review the data and the latest scientific evidence and no decision has yet been made in Phase 4.” In recent days, Prime Minister Johnson has announced that the final decision on easing restrictions will be made one week before the June 14 deadline. The United Kingdom has been battling for a few weeks with a new increase in Covid cases due to the so-called Indian (delta) variant of the virus, Public Health England announced yesterday. It will be the dominant moment in the UK. According to the institute, the number of confirmed cases increased by 79% last week, reaching 12,431 cases. Scientists are convinced that the delta variant has now overtaken the alpha variant, which was identified in Kent last fall. (Release)
