Delta variant may make UK less of a virus outlier, says aimeedonnellan:
The pandemic hit British GDP more than that of the United States, Germany and France in 2020. An extension of UK restrictions in the face of the so-called Delta variant implies the same could happen this year. But other states are likely to have to impose fresh restrictions too.
Context NewsUK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on June 14 delayed his plans to lift most remaining Covid-19 restrictions by a month, warning that thousands more people might die if he did nothing because of the rapid spread of the more infectious Delta variant.
Under the final stage of a plan outlined by Johnson in February, he had hoped to lift most social restrictions on June 21, meaning pubs, restaurants, nightclubs and other hospitality venues could fully reopen.That much-anticipated step was pushed back to July 19.
The situation would be reviewed on June 28, which could allow the reopening to be brought forward, although Johnson's spokesman said that was considered unlikely.Source: REUTERS/Henry NichollsPolice officers stand guard during an anti-lockdown and anti-vaccine protest, amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, outside Downing Street, London, Britain, June 14, 2021. headtopics.comRead more: ReutersBreakingviews »
