Next Monday (12/4), the UK will begin a new phase in corona virus infections. About 70% of people with immunizations – those who have been vaccinated and those who have been infected with Govt-19 – who have been locked up since January can finally go to a beauty salon or have a beer outside the pubs.
The United Kingdom is preparing to reopen its economy after a significant reduction in the number of cases and deaths caused by COV-19 in countries most affected by the corona virus. The country recorded an average of 30 daily deaths and 2,762 new cases, according to data from last Wednesday (7/4). As for the vaccine, 60.4% of people have already received the first dose and about 11% have taken the booster so far. 90% of the elderly over the age of 90 are already immunized.
The population of the UK, one of the countries that is part of the United Kingdom, can also do two Govt-19 tests a week for free. Like the PCR, you have to collect the material from the throat or nose and the results are delivered in 30 minutes.
However, while the numbers are promising, experts will monitor the progress of the resume in detail. Concerns have been raised that the virus could return to circulation as people move between many vaccinated areas and places where this is not yet true.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The country is also aware of the emergence of new variants that make it difficult to find new varieties.
Certificate of Immunity
The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson, has been researching the possibility of developing an immunization certificate for anyone who takes both doses of the vaccine or who has been cured of Covit-19 in recent months. The idea is that before entering big shows, nightclubs or sporting events, the visitor must provide a passport. There is a debate about expanding the demand for frequently closed pubs, but permission for this type of establishment should only be granted in mid-May.
The move was not well received as a section of the population and British MPs feared it would create a discriminatory environment for people who could not keep the document.
International travel is also banned. Passengers wishing to enter the United Kingdom must complete 14 days of isolation at a hotel.
Claudio Myrovitch, a public health expert and former director of the National Health Watchdog (ANVISA), is wary of a British resumption. According to him, since the corona virus is far from being controlled, the initial steps should be defined and carefully monitored. “I can only imagine a safe start once children and adolescents start using vaccines because they are a large group of people who can continue to spread the virus,” he explains.
The expert also noted that it is not known whether vaccines prevent the spread of the corona virus. Without this information, even controlled events can be dangerous for the spread of the disease. “I think anything that promotes integration and is not necessary for the functioning of the country is courageous. I understand that concerts, sporting championships and religious events must continue to be canceled,” he says.
Bubble between countries
Australia and New Zealand, two islands that have taken drastic measures to curb circulation at the border, have now been living free from Kovit-19 for months.
In New Zealand, the salaries of Prime Minister Jacinta Orton, ministers and some civil servants have been slashed by 20% in six months, with only essential services working and serious locks being made. The government helped the poor people financially and practically zero in the new Govt-19 cases.
All of this before vaccination: Mass immunizations should only be launched in the second half of 2021. So far, only leading health professionals, border hotel workers and isolated travelers and their families receive immunizations.
In Australia, with the exception of surveillance of border cases, no passengers or crew can disembark, people are forced to wear masks, gatherings are prohibited and the government uses locks to control the spread in some areas. With no recorded cases, life has already returned to normal: by the end of March, 70,000 people watched a game of rugby in a stadium, and concerts with 13,000 people had already taken place.
Both countries launched last Tuesday (6/4), which allows travel between countries without the need for isolated or negative corona virus testing. So far, the permit has been unilateral, with only Australia receiving passengers from New Zealand without protocol. According to Ordern, passengers must wear a mask on the plane and the airstrip will be closed if the virus explodes. Travelers from other countries need to be further isolated to reach the country.
