Poland and Russia report record new daily infections; Taiwan to tighten restrictions after 60 Covid cases at Taoyuan factory

The deputy lead for England’s NHS Covid vaccination programme Dr Nikki Kanani, said on Saturday health care professionals “have a duty” to make sure they are protected against Covid-19. All NHS staff in England who have direct contact with patients must have had their first dose of a Covid vaccine by 3 February, and have had two jabs by 1 April, or risk losing their job at the end of March - a government policy unions fear will worsen the health service’s staffing crisis.

Dr Kanani was asked if the NHS can cope with the possibility of losing thousands of staff due to mandatory vaccination. She told reporters: Mandatory vaccination is a government policy but as healthcare professionals we all have a duty to make sure that we are protected, to make sure that our colleagues and our patients are protected.
