The variation of the new coronovirus has prompted the UK government to tighten restrictions that will be adopted as of Sunday (20). Scientists say the mutation of the virus is more contagious, but there is no evidence that it worsens the disease or that it reduces protection from vaccines.
The British Prime Minister warned that “when the virus changes the way of attack it is time to change the defense”. Boris Johnson explained that mutations of the new coronovirus would be up to 70% more infectious.
The head of the UK Scientific Council confirms that this differentiation has “gone away”, moving rapidly and increasing hospitalization rapidly. Patrick Valence clarified that there is no evidence that differentiation causes more severe disease or reduces the effects of vaccines: “The virus is basically the same.”
The British government believes the mutation may have occurred in other countries and has warned the WHO. The variety has already become the most prominent form of new coronovirus in London, in the South East and East of England.
These areas have expanded the risk scale. Before I went to level three and the fourth was inaugurated on Saturday (19). In other words, regional imprisonment starts this Sunday.
“With a very tight heart,” the Prime Minister canceled Christmas for a third of English. People will not be able to receive visits and can only meet in the open with a second home resident. Stores and non-essential services will be closed or operated as a delivery service.
The British government allowed meetings in other areas. Residents of three different homes will be able to meet, but only on Christmas Eve. Earlier, this “Christmas bubble” would last from 23rd to 27th.
Three days ago, Boris Johnson promised that everyone would have a short but happy Christmas. The Prime Minister even said that banning meetings would be inhumane. But after listening to the science, this explanation was as human as possible: “We are not going to celebrate this year so that we can be together for the next years.”
