For now, the deconfinement scheme has not changed. The new British Health Minister, Sajid Javed, maintained the government’s goal of lifting the government on Monday, June 28 and July 19.

Health officials are concerned, however. After several months of decline, the epidemic has intensified in recent weeks, with more than 22,000 new cases reported on Monday. This eruption is due to delta variation, which is highly contagious and dominant in the UK. This mutation, which has been identified in India, has already postponed the removal of the last restrictions scheduled for June 21 by one month.

“We see no reason to go beyond July 19.” In maintaining the last restraint, Sajid Javed said in his first speech to MPs as health minister. The weekend was marked by the resignation of his predecessor Matt Hancock, who admitted to violating health restrictions after the press revealed an affair with a consultant.

“No date” Will not be with one “Zero risk” Regarding Covid 19, “We know we can not get rid of it. We have to live with it.”, Added Sajid Javed. The government, which launched an intensive vaccination campaign in December by July 19, aims to vaccinate two-thirds of adults. Currently, 62% of them are fully vaccinated.
