    Yesterday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned that the highly infectious Indian Covid variant is of “increasing concern” in the UK. This comes amidst reports that the variant is becoming more prominent in Britain, and spreads much faster than the Kent mutation. But how worried should we be about this new variant? And could it derail our roadmap out of lockdown? Dr Sara is here with the latest on the issue. And as the vaccine rollout is extended to people aged 38 and 39, Professor Tim Spector will be telling us about the alternative vaccines they’re being offered, and any potential side-effects.
