British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to delay the final easing of Covid-19 restrictions in England this month.
The recent rise in Covid-19 cases across in England is due to the new Delta variant, first identified in India, and experts are urging caution.
The final end to restrictions planned for June 21st is expected to be put out by a further four weeks, until the end of July.
The Government will make a final decision tomorrow ahead of the PM’s news conference on Monday.
Some scientists within Britain are claiming that the new rise in cases could lead to a substantial further wave if the proper precautions are not implemented.
The goal over the next month will be to vaccinate as many people as possible, in particular younger adults, due to the rise in those age cohorts.
A potential delay will come as a massive upset to many businesses, in particular hospitality and leisure businesses, who have been struggling immensely over the past fifteen months.
Further information surrounding the decision is expected tomorrow and Monday.
