On Monday, no cases of death from coronavirus were recorded in Northern Ireland, England and Scotland, voria.gr reports.
Three of the four regions of the United Kingdom have declared zero deaths from COVID-19, while Wales has recorded only four deaths. This is an excellent result of the UK vaccination campaign. According to statistics, one third of the adult population is already fully vaccinated, and two thirds have received at least one vaccine.
In line with expert recommendations, the UK has announced a reduction in the alert level from 4 to 3 and is in the process of gradually lifting coronavirus-related restrictive measures – a four-step plan was announced in February. Prime Minister Boris Johnson intends to announce new concessions at today’s press conference.
It is expected that the room will be able to accommodate groups of up to 6 people or members of two families. Service of visitors in restaurants in an enclosed space will also be resumed, although, as before, in compliance with the established sanitary rules. It is possible that sports and cultural events will be allowed, as the number of people allowed in the premises will be increased compared to previous months. Johnson stated yesterday:
“The data reflects what we already know, we will not let this virus defeat us. We continue to adhere to the plan of action as our successful vaccination program continues. More than two thirds of adults in the UK have already received the first dose of the vaccine, and now we can gently unblock (the economy) but not go back. “
More than 127,000 people have died in the UK since the start of the pandemic. The peak of the second, especially catastrophic, wave occurred in January of this year.
