Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson uses cautionary metaphors amid vaccine hopes” – below is their description.
”Tis the season to be jolly, but it’s also the season to be jolly careful,’ said Boris Johnson, as he set out a new three-tier system for England. He said the government would use ‘tiering, testing and the rolling out of vaccines’ to protect the population over Christmas and into the new year – but he stressed the importance of caution.
Johnson has promised a relaxation of restrictions over Christmas, although details have not yet been finalised with the administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The ‘vast majority’ of vulnerable people who need a Covid-19 vaccine could be vaccinated by Easter, according to the prime minister

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
During the 2020 Covid-19 epidemic, lockdown has come to mean the practice of attempting to control transmission of the virus by means of restricting people’s movement and activities on a broad scale, usually on a national or state-wide basis.
A vaccine is a biological preparation that provides active acquired immunity to a particular infectious disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins, or one of its surface proteins.
