Chris Hopson said many people hospitalized in Bolton - the area most affected by the variant - were younger, with very little fully vaccinated patients. He said this red call to show that vaccines had broken the chain between infection and serious illness. But a scientist pointed to signs of the variant's spread. 5,765 more infections were recorded in the UK on Saturday, and 13 more deaths were recorded within 28 days of a test positive. The recent increase in the number of cases is in part due to the increased transmissibility of the Delta variant, which was first identified in India. Mr. Hopson said that in Bolton, people hospitalized with Covid were much younger than patients in the early stages of the pandemic, which meant there was less demand for careintensive . He added that there were very, very few people hospitalized who had received the doses of a Covid vaccine because they had the accumulation of protection after these jabs . For the moment, ministers say that nothing in the current data does not suggest that England cannot move on to step four of the roadmap on June 21. But what does the roadmap commit to? really? He says the government will reopen places like nightclubs, he hopes to raise the number cap at weddings and remove all legal limits on social contact . If you look at the rest of the roadmap, it 's pretty clear that contact social was used to refer to how many people can congregate and where. So he does not commit to ending measures such as the social distancing rule one meter more in pubs and restaurants, wearing face masks or even working from home. These measures are being scrutinized by a government review. The results were to be announced in late May but are now likely to come with the decision on stage four on June 14. This raises the possibility of stage four as planned, but with at least some social distancing measures that do not expect a return to normal overnight. The Chancellor Rishi Sunak said no final decision has been made on the June unlock, as ministers reviewed the data as it went . He said: As thesaid the Prime Minister, we need to make sure that we have vaccinated and protected enough people to reassure us given the new variant currently in the UK. Mr Sunak added that it was too early to say where this would end but that the data would be reviewed and a decision made before the 21st June. Asked about the lifting of restrictions in June, Dr Kucharski said that the new variant had changed the equation. We are not facing the virus we faced two months ago. If we were facing the B.117 (Kent) variant as dominant , the fact that it (the vaccines) i is working very well, the number of cases is decreasing well, we could be more confident that there could be a reopening without seeing these increases. But we're not ... if let's say two weeks from now we're in a situation where hospitalizations have increased, where local health systems are under pressure, I think it will be quite difficult to justify adding more. transmission to this kind of situation. In the meantime, surge coronavirus tests are being deployed in parts of Berkshire and Bradford after cases of the Delta variant have been identified there. Anyone over the age of 12 who lives and works in specific areas of the Postcode Reading and Wokingham are offered PCR testing for fifteen days at starting Monday.
