The Independent published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson rejects calls for tougher Covid plans amid rising cases” – below is their description.
Boris Johnson has again rejected pleas from NHS leaders to move now to the tougher Covid restrictions in his ‘Plan B’, insisting: “We’re sticking with our plan.”
He acknowledged case rates are “high” and are rising, after almost 50,000 new infections are recorded each day across the UK.
But he insisted they are “within the parameters of what the predictions were” from government advisers when the lifting of the lockdown was completed in the summer.
