Boris Johnson was under increasing pressure on Saturday to relax code rules in England because of the threat posed to India’s variables. His own advisers and independent health experts have expressed concern that this could lead to an increase in hospital admissions, especially among young adults.
From Monday, people will be able to meet outside in groups of 30 parties, while six people or two families will be allowed to meet indoors. Pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants will be allowed to serve customers indoors. Indoor entertainment such as museums, cinemas and children’s play areas, as well as theaters, concert halls, conference centers and sports stadiums can open.
Overnight stay will be allowed. Weddings, receptions and other events will be held in groups of up to 30. An unlimited number of people will be able to attend the funeral.
But there are fears that as the “Big Bang” approaches, a third wave in India’s new form could be triggered. Professor Andrew Hayward, a member of the government’s task force on new and emerging viruses (neurotags), said the easing would increase the number of people infected with Indian variants and put unsuspecting young adults at greater risk. Will pose
“Internal mixing will almost certainly increase the transmission of the B17..1717..2 variable, but at this stage no one can be sure how much,” he said.
Hayward added that many people would end up in the hospital if it was feared that the variable proved to be 40% more transmissible than previous variants, especially the Kent variant, which ran the second deadliest wave in the winter. Of Modeling by the government’s own Sage Committee of Scientific Advisers has already said that the new format could increase transmissibility by up to 50%.
“A 20% increase in transmissibility is not a big issue. [but] The 40% increase would be a huge problem and could lead to a significant increase in hospital admissions. Hayward warned that large-scale hospital admissions would lead to failure as a result of falling behind in routine health services and care.
Meanwhile, Professor Kitts, a member of the Independent Sage Committee of Scientists, said: Observer That Johnson should delay Monday’s unlocking for a fortnight to inject more people. Going forward, Yates said the prime minister would violate one of the government’s four key exams. That risk assessment will not be changed in any new way – which he has already insisted will guide all decisions on when and how to reduce sanctions.
“The precautionary principle must be followed at this time,” Yates said. “The more people we can vaccinate, the safer we are. Even two weeks of this week can make a big difference in the form of this seemingly more transmissible type. There is also time to learn more about the features, which puts us in a better position to plan our next projects.
He added: “The rapid rise in B.1.617.2 and the wave of hospital admissions predicted by sage modeling means that the risk has changed fundamentally and the fourth test is not completed. There is data suggesting a re-examination of the roadmap.
Downing Street insisted it would proceed with the easing plan. But Martin McKee, another member of the Independent Sage, described reducing the lockdown as a real threat: “The prime minister will decide for himself.” “The scientific advice they are taking is clear,” he said. Opening on Somis Day is a big risk and we know we have not met their fourth test to move forward with the set roadmap.
Emphasizing the risks to young adults, Mukki added: “Although the individual risk is less for a young person with a serious illness, if a large number of infections occur, the number of severe illnesses is higher. May be.” McKee added that a third wave of infection would affect as many people as possible with the debilitating effects of the long coyote, which is already present in about 1.1 million Britons.
On Saturday, Labor stepped up attacks on the government for failing to respond immediately to calls for additional vaccines in new coveted “hotspots”, including Bolton and Blackburn.
Shadow Health Secretary Jonathan Ashworth said: “Health officials at the ground in Bolton and Blackburn have called for additional vaccinations, saying beggars believe ministers are rejecting these calls, especially when Sage Minutes appear to support extensive vaccination.It is urgently necessary to have a spread in this different condition.We know from Kent’s mutation how wide it can be in different conditions without action.
He had earlier accused the government of failing in enforcing the Border Control Act. “The tragedy is that if Boris Johnson had imposed strong border controls, we could have avoided it. Instead, our borders have been like a sieve threatening to send us back when we have come so far. “
But an official spokesman said: “We have some of the toughest border measures in the world. We took precautionary measures to ban travel from India on April 23, six days before the variables were investigated and so on. Two weeks before being labeled a concern, we have since stepped up our vaccination program and increased local assistance to prevent transmission. Before putting India on the red list in April, anyone coming to the UK Also had to check for negative and quarantine for 10 days.
“I think it will increase the risk of infection and we are now entering the third wave,” said Professor Paul Hunter, an infectious disease specialist at the University of East Anglia.
Although there is no evidence yet to defer Monday’s exemption, “we can look back at the three-week period and think that Phase 3 was uninvited, although we can’t.”
