BBC News published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson says UK will not escape third wave of Covid pandemic – BBC News” – below is their description.

The United Kingdom will not escape the effects of a third-wave of the pandemic, given the sharp rise in Covid cases in parts of the European Union.

That’s the warning from the prime minister Boris Johnson, who said people should be “under no illusion” about the dangers.

One minister also warned that the UK might put “all our European neighbours” on the red list of countries from which all arrivals are either banned or travellers are put in quarantine hotels.

Meanwhile the row between the UK and the EU over vaccine supplies has intensified, with a threat that the EU could block doses of vaccines manufactured in the EU from being exported to the UK.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by political editor Laura Kuenssberg, Europe editor Katya Adler and medical editor Fergus Walsh.
