London, Mar. Undermining vaccine efforts to control the virus and thus the infection.
Speaking to the BBC, Mike Tildesley, a member of the committee that created the Conservative executive program, said there was a “real risk” of an increase in the United Kingdom epidemics if people left in July and August. In other countries, there may be more vaccine-resistant varieties.
“I think international travel this summer is, unfortunately, not quite possible for the average vacationer,” said an expert on mathematical models of infectious diseases at the University of Warwick (central England).
For his part, another government adviser, epidemiologist Andrew Howard, sees Boris Johnson executive “impossible” to “encourage people to move to other countries”.
“One of the most worrying things about the outbreak in Europe is that the South African variant (anti-vaccine) has been caught in some areas,” he said.
Apart from these comments, the government is expected to announce its plan for international travel on April 12, which, however, will not take place before May 17 in line with the current restoration road map.
At this time, it is illegal to leave the UK for any good reason and passengers must be isolated at home or at designated hotels and must undergo various checks before and after arriving in the country.
Within the national vaccination program, half of British adults have already received the first dose of a covid vaccine, and the first dose is expected to be given to all adults by July. EFE
