- Corona virus cases are on the rise in Britain
- New strain found in Britain, claims health minister
- Lockdowns have been imposed in many places, including London
- Pfizer’s corona vaccine has been given in Britain
The condition of the corona virus is becoming very serious in Britain. A Tier-3 shutdown has been imposed on 100 million people living in the southeast. The country’s health minister, Matt Hancock, has warned that new strains of the corona virus are catching on fast. With this, a lockdown has been announced. Hancock told parliament that the rules would take effect in London from Wednesday morning. After this, the business is likely to get a shock once again.
And the action can be difficult
In addition to London, Hertfordshire and Essex will also go into lockdown. In addition, these restrictions will apply to 60% of the country’s population. However, Hancock says they will be relieved on December 23rd. The UK saw 20,263 cases on Monday, ranking third from the previous Monday. Hancock said he already knows the biggest weapon against the virus is rapid action, not waiting. He also said that further action could not be ruled out.
Not too dangerous
Hancock also warned against visiting friends and family with Christmas and said people should be careful about who they meet. Hancock claims that scientists have found a new strain of the virus, which is the reason for its rapid spread in Britain. He said preliminary evidence suggests he is growing faster than ever before. However, he indicated that he is not very lethal and is less concerned that the vaccine will not affect him.
At the same time, before this, Britain became the first country where people outside the trial were vaccinated against the corona virus. About 8 million people have been targeted in the first phase to deliver the mRNA vaccine from the American company Pfizer and its German partner Bioentech. The vaccine is currently being given to people who are at higher risk of contracting the virus.
