UK to implement a new system of regional restrictions tougher than the tax in early autumn as of December 2, when the confinement ends.
The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, will present this new system to Parliament this Monday, as well as the Government’s plan for the celebration of Christmas, as reported by British public television BBC.
The plan will be finalized in a Council of Ministers to be held this Sunday and is expected to follow the three-level alert system that existed before the lockdown, but with more restrictions per phase than before.
Public television has also announced that an article written by the scientific board that advises the Government will be published on Monday in which it is ensured that the decisions made by the Government in autumn were not strong enough to control the pandemic.
Among the new measures that the Government will announce, ‘Daily Telegraph’ has ensured that the possibility of allowing families to meet for Christmas in a “bubble” that lasts between December 22 and 28 will be included, although restrictions will be maintained and Christmas will not be “normal”.
The UK could relax current lockdown measures against the COVID-19 pandemic to allow families to reunite at Christmas, before the signs that new cases of coronavirus begin to decline As a result of the restrictions imposed, the Secretary of Health, Matt Hancock.
United Kingdom holds the Europe’s highest official COVID-19 death toll Y Boris Johnson has enacted some of the harshest measures in its history in peacetime, in an attempt to slow the spread of the virus.
Hancock said he is working with the delegated administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to have a joint focus on the UK for Christmas.
England has been in lockdown for two weeks, something that the Minister of Health considers to be helping to flatten the number of cases, an important sign that the situation is beginning to move in the right direction before making a decision about Christmas.
“There are encouraging signs that the number of cases is starting to decline, and that the closure we introduced earlier this month is working.“Hancock told the British television channel Sky News.
Confinement in England ends on December 2nd.
The UK government asked the drug regulatory agency (MHRA) on Friday to analyze the vaccine against covid-19 from Pfizer and BioNTech to be able to start supplying it in December to the most vulnerable groups and from January to the entire population.
This formal request for the vaccine’s suitability to be evaluated could make the UK the first country after the US to have the antigen. If approved by regulators, the country expects to have 10 million doses, enough to protect 5 million people, by the end of the year.
The UK had already ordered 40 million doses of that vaccine, which turned out to be 95% effective to prevent the spread of a virus that has killed more than 1.3 million people worldwide and paralyzed the global economy.
The British Minister of Health, Matt Hancock, explained in a press conference that Pfizer has begun to send the data required by the independent regulator and will complete the information in the coming days.
