British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that relaxation to curb the coronavirus epidemic in England may start on March 8. Johnson directly pointed to the fact that as a first step in opening, students could return to schools.
The British Prime Minister will inform the House of Representatives in London Monday afternoon of the schedule for lifting restrictions, and a press conference will be held in the evening.
Johnson said in a preliminary statement published by Downing Street at dawn on Monday
The plan that he draws throughout the day aims to solve short circuit in precise steps.
The Prime Minister stressed that the government has always considered the most important mitigation measure
Children can return to school, as this is extremely important not only for their education but also for their mental and physical well-being.
The British government also makes it one of the most important tasks in which people must finally be able to meet their loved ones in safe conditions.
Boris Johnson also highlighted that
Each step in lifting restrictions will be determined on the basis of the most recent available data and the government will act with caution,
So that the progress made so far in curbing the epidemic is not undermined by the sacrifice of the population.
That is why the UK government has put in place a four-point standards system, and all four conditions must be met before taking any further steps to ease restrictions.
Accordingly, the removal of the ban could go forward if the vaccination program continues successfully, if the evidence shows that coronavirus vaccines reduce the number of hospital admissions and coronavirus deaths between vaccines if current infection rates are not threatened. The need for hospitalization to the extent that it would put an unsustainable pressure on the Public Health Service (NHS) or in the absence of a new virus variant fundamentally changes the perception of risk.
Downing Street reported on Monday that all four of these criteria are currently being met, so on March 8th, the government will take the first step toward easing restrictions.
According to the Prime Minister’s Office in London, the date was chosen because according to the British government’s Joint Vaccination Committee (JCVI), a certain degree of protection was already in place by then.
In the four subpopulations were the most vulnerable in the body vaccination schedule.
At the top of the priority vaccination list of the Joint International Committee for the Care of Residing Children and Caregivers in Nursing Homes over the age of 80 and those working on the front lines of healthcare and care services, followed in chronological order 75, 70, 65, 60, 55, and finally followed People over 50 years old
The first official goal was to provide at least the first dose of the Coronavirus vaccine to all members of the first four groups at risk on JCVI’s priority list by February 15, this past Monday.
This goal was achieved one day before the deadline, and JCVI experts say that in this group, protection will be developed three weeks after the first dose of the vaccine, at the latest by March for the first dilution measures.
Boris Johnson previously stressed that only a cautious rhythm in the opening is possible
While the government is determined that the process leading to the lifting of restrictions must be irreversible and that the current national lockdown since the beginning of January, now the third since the start of the pandemic, should be the last such restrictive measure.
