Britain is being “frightened” by “incorrect forecasts that don’t take into consideration the impact of vaccines”, Tory MP Iain Duncan Smith has told GB News.
The former Conservative leader expressed his disappointment at the delay to Freedom Day on The Great British Breakfast, after Boris Johnson said easing of restrictions would be postponed until July 19.
He argued that Covid-19 vaccines were effective against the Delta variant which first originated in India, citing figures which showed a 60% reduction in hospitalisations after one jab and up to 95% reduction after two doses.GBNews YouTube Channel
