Officials hope that more anti-coronavirus vaccines will be released in England on January 26, as internal data suggests health care will not prevent the spread of the Omicron virus.
Coronavirus cases have dropped in all counties and groups in England last week. On Monday, 142,224 cases were reported in the UK, down 10 percent of the 157,758 cases reported the same day last week.
Boris Johnson, the UK’s prime minister, launched his “Plan B” campaign last month as the new crisis spread rapidly in the UK; also included homework guidance if possible, masks on all internal settings and vaccinations for major events.
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland expressed their views with similar approaches, but later they moved on with house-to-house visits and conventions.
Michael Gove, secretary general, on Monday said the country should learn to “have a Covid” and admitted that he had made a mistake in persuading the government to ban some.
Gove told the BBC that Johnson’s idea of multi-way was correct. “His judgment is. He openly stated that we can tackle this with an encouraging campaign. ”
One government official said “hope is growing” that this will be over in two weeks. “The cabinet was provided with data while everything seemed to be going well.”
An official close to the project said: “People see January 26 as a way to relax instead of keeping things in perspective.” The man added that the government was “working” to get rid of it.
But an official at Whitehall warned that it was “almost time” to state with certainty whether the ban would be lifted, but added that “the information does not lead to serious consequences.”
The Plan B standards contain a sunset clause that will legally dissolve them on January 26. If Johnson wants to amend them, he must return to Parliament for re-election.
Mark Harper, chairman of the Covid Recovery Group of Tory MP skeptics, he tells Financial Times that the Prime Minister could face more terrorists than the system was set up if he wanted to increase it. “I think there have been a lot of protesters,” he said.
One government official acknowledged that “political pressure will be put in place” on coronavirus prevention.
Johnson said officials are also considering whether to reduce the Covid-19 isolation period from seven to five days following a reduction in the UK workforce.
He told reporters that there was a “controversy” over the length of the isolation but the government would follow their advice. “We are looking at this and we are acting in accordance with science.”
But there is still controversy over whether Covid’s cases have reached its climax. Last week, an investigation by the Office for National Statistics said the disease had just begun to hit London within a year.
Weekly hospitals dropped by 16 per cent in the capital last week on January 8. But nationally, Covid admissions increased by 5 per cent per week, with 14,017 recruits enrolled, up by more than 20 per cent in northern England. Greater Manchester has already passed its eagle from last winter.
“If we go through a peak in two weeks, then I would be surprised if the government wants to keep any restrictions but we must realize that it takes a long and slow process to get down to a peak, long and slow. The NHS recovery from the epidemic will be , “said Matthew Taylor, chief of the NHS Confederation, which represents health organizations.
In the meantime, the government has teamed up with companies in critical areas to compile a list of some 100,000 employees who need daily blood tests. But it has not yet announced the list of employees under the new policy, which is due to start on Monday.
