  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson warns of roadmap disruption due to Indian variant | Covid-19” – below is their description.

    Boris Johnson has warned that “hard choices” may have to be made, including a possible “disruption” to the fourth and final stage in the roadmap, as a result of the Indian variant. 

    The Prime Minister said cases were rising but there are some “important unknowns”, including the fact that it is not known how transmissible this variant is. If it is “only marginally” more, the plan can continue as expected, but if it is more “we will be facing some hard choices”, he said.

    He confirmed that phase three of unlocking, however, will go ahead as planned on Monday.
