Global News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus: UK’s Johnson says lockdown easing must be “cautious but irreversible”” – below is their description.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday he would plot a “cautious but irreversible” path out of the COVID-19 lockdown this week after the vaccination of 15 million vulnerable people in the country.
With nearly a quarter of the United Kingdom’s population now inoculated with a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in a little over two months, Johnson is under pressure from some lawmakers and businesses to reopen the shuttered economy.
Johnson, due to set the path out of lockdown on Feb. 22, said the rates of infection were still high and too many people were still dying.
The biggest and swiftest global vaccine rollout in history is seen as the best chance of exiting the COVID-19 pandemic which has killed 2.4 million people, tipped the global economy into its worst peacetime slump since the Great Depression, and upended normal life for billions.
