In this article, I am going to be talking about some pieces of latest news that are relating to the United Kingdom. The Prime Minister and also the chancellor or actually now self isolating after contact with somebody who had tested positive for the coronavirus. These gentlemen have actually been vaccinated, but they are being safe.
This has actually come ahead of lifting the lock down rules in all of England from Monday, 19 July. Almost all of the legal restrictions are to end, including the limit on how many people can meet in a public setting and an indoor setting. Self isolation rules will remain and nightclubs will reopen.
The Prime Minister has asked everyone to stick with the programme. Following the news that Mr Javid had tested positive and had been in contact with Boris Johnson, they have actually gone into self isolation, to make sure that they don’t spread the virus even further, even though they are vaccinated. The United Kingdom is going to face a very difficult summer, because of the surge in cases. It is certainly very frustrating indeed, and they are urging everybody to get vaccinated, so that there can be less amount of people who get hospitalised because of Covid.
A lot of people are actually saying that unlock in the country, especially when there is a surge in cases is definitely going to be problematic. Some scientists are saying that the UK Covid cases could actually end up hitting 200,000 a day, behind the lock down strategy. There has been a major disruption in the United Kingdom, especially because of the surge in cases. This is something that is almost inevitable, according to a lot of people. Some people are actually getting hospitalised even though they had been fully vaccinated. This is definitely something that is very problematic and scary.
The real question is that is it something that is going to get even worse?
The number of daily hospitalisation has actually crossed 2000 per day, and it is equivalent to the level that it was in Christmas in 2020. Even though people are currently being hospitalised, they are not becoming very ill. The coronavirus infections in the United Kingdom are actually searching again, and the hospitalisation are also on a rise, because of the spread of the Delta variant. The Delta variant is something that is very transmissible. It is very contagious indeed. Whether the unlocking is temporary or terminate, it will completely depend on the precautions taken by the public and also the vaccination rates. All of the scientists have warned the people, especially about the restrictions that are being lifted. The people of the United Kingdom are told to be very careful.
