“We cannot last indefinitely with restrictions that undermine our economy, our mental and physical well-being, and the opportunities for our children’s lives,” Boris Johnson told lawmakers. “That’s why it’s important that this roadmap be prudent, but also irreversible.”
The most bereaved country in Europe, with about 121,000 dead, the United Kingdom limited itself for the third time at the beginning of the year. However, the large-scale vaccination campaign that was put in place at the end of 2020 has led to a reduction in contamination, hospitalization, and deaths. By mid-April, more than 50 people should be partially vaccinated, then all adults by the end of July. “I basically believe that the vaccination program has been a game-changer in our favor,” Boris Johnson said. According to a Scottish study published yesterday, the currently given Pfizer / Bioentech and AstraZeneca / Oxford vaccines have reduced hospitalizations by 85% and 94%, one after the other, respectively.
