UK health secretary: Covid curbs two and on July 19

UK health secretary Javid to House of Commons says:

  • We see no reason to go beyond July 19
  • We know we cannot eliminate coronavirus, we have to learn to live with it
  • We should not wait a moment longer then we need to to left restrictions

Covid cases have been rising as a result of the contagious Delta virus (see chart below).

However, hospitalizations and death rates remain relatively low.  

Earlier today PM Johnson said there will be an early release from England’s social distancing rules on July 5, but felt that taking a few more weeks to analyze the infection patterns and administer more vaccines made sense before lifting all the curbs.
