The United Kingdom on Monday (12.04.
More than 32 million people (out of 66 million people) received at least one first dose in the UK, which has maintained its goal of suggesting at least one first dose for all adults by the end of July, despite AstraZeneca’s vaccine problems.
“We have passed a very important stage in our vaccination program,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement.
With nearly 127,000 deaths, the United Kingdom is the country worst affected by the Coronavirus in Europe. But for the third time since January (December) in places like London, it has recorded very low numbers of daily deaths (7 on Sunday), injuries (1730) and hospitalizations (221).
This Monday, after nearly four months in confinement, England launched a long-awaited new phase of relaxation. Hairdressers were full, queues formed in front of the shops and some bars started serving beer.
Boris Johnson has announced a roadmap that foresees, if there are no surprises, a new mitigation phase every five weeks.
The first began on March 8, but has limited to reopening schools and licenses to meet up to five people abroad. (afp)
