British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday released a roadmap to remove the lockdown in the country. Lockdown will be removed in 4 steps. While announcing their dates, Johnson said the threat still remains. The number of hospitalized patients and deaths will increase in the coming months, as no vaccine can guarantee 100% protection to the entire population.
Johnson explained that there would be a 5-week gap between all steps of the roadmap. Any haste could also mean a repeat lockdown and I will not take this risk. He told the MPs that data would play an important role in our steps rather than dates.
He said that I understand the circumstances of those who are talking about removing the lockdown soon. I am very sympathetic to the stress people are feeling or the business is suffering. The PM said that the removal of lockdown will start from schools. All schools in the country will re-open from 8 March.

UK Prime Minister agrees with UN Chief
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has assured that if there is a surplus vaccine in his country, he will definitely give it to poor countries. Johnson’s statement is important. Just two days ago, UN Chief Antonia Guterres made it clear that rich countries have an excess stock of vaccines and this is a danger signal for the rest of the world, especially poor countries. This statement also has diplomatic significance. Russia and China are trying to dominate in some countries through vaccine diplomacy. China is targeting poor African countries.
Johnson reiterated that vaccines should be given to poor countries. Joe Biden was also present at this meeting. French President Emmanuel Macron also said that rich countries should give five percent of the vaccine stock to poor countries.
Masks will be necessary in America in 2022 too
Dr. Anthony Fauci, an important member of US President Joe Biden’s Corona Task Force and a leading expert on infectious diseases, has asked the countrymen to be vigilant. During a program, Fauci said – Half of the total deaths in the world occurred in our country. This is a historical failure. We would never like to miss it. There is still time when we work with caution. I believe that Americans will be required to wear masks next year as well. Vaccination is going on very fast, but we cannot achieve success without being cautious. The death toll in the US has crossed five lakh. Fauci is Biden’s Chief Medical Advisor and has held this position even during the era of Donald Trump.
Fauci said – The situation also depends on how many and how variants of the virus are exposed. Apart from this, it will also be necessary to see how dangerous these variants are. At the moment, the situation can be controlled and that is what we are doing. Masks are the only thing with which we can avoid future threats with proper use.
