Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “UK scientists warn against lifting COVID curbs as variants drive new cases up” – below is their description.
The United Kingdom is due to lift coronavirus lockdown curbs in England on June 21, despite scientists warning that the presence of a variant first spotted in India is likely contributing to the third wave of cases.
The government’s vaccination scheme has been credited with bringing the rate of infections sharply down.
But now a race is on to get shots into as many people’s arms as possible as daily cases breach the 3,000 mark again.
