Health Secretary Sajid Javid said the government won’t be implementing Plan B of its COVID-19 contingency measures at this time, during a press conference held on Wednesday. He reiterated that precautions are still necessary, such as wearing masks and taking lateral flow tests before attending get-togethers, as well as urging the public to get both the COVID-19 and the flu vaccines for those who haven’t had their jabs.
“With winter ahead we can’t blow it now”. Health Secretary Sajid Javid forecasts a potential 100k daily Covid cases in UK, says Govt is redoubling the vaccine booster jab programme. “We must all play our part” – but rules out Plan B. For now.
“It is time for the government to enact Plan B” Some Covid restrictions, like mandatory face coverings, must immediately be reintroduced if England is to avoid “stumbling into a winter crisis”, health leaders warn.
What people are saying?
Linda Lunn TRUST? when their actions have caused the highest infection and death rate in Europe despite their vaccination programme when we are an island, the mishandling of the care home fiasco, their reliance on survival of the fittest and their own rule breaking.
Cherry Greveson I have never understood why people make such a fuss about a few simple precautions like vaccination and face masks. It’s not difficult and if it saves you serious illness or even death, then get on with it!
