 England To Enter New Lockdown As Covid Variant Spreads
 이** (jean)



British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a new national lockdown 

for England as the country battles a more contagious strain of Covid-19.



The UK tonight acknowledged it’s losing its battle againts the new strain of 

the virus,up to 70% more contagious and needs to lockdown immediately. 

England is closing schools and universities, and banning all but essential 

movements.You may only leave home for limited reasons permited in law 

such as to smop for essentials, to work if you absolutely cannot work from

home, to exercise, to seek medical assistance. Prime minister said the 

lockdown will last until mid february. By then he said the UK will have 

vaccinated all people over 70, all those in care homes and all front line 

medical workers. As of today the UK began to distribute the home grown 

Astrazeneca vaccine ,which unlike the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines,doesn’t 

require ultra cold temperatures making it easier to store and distribute.

Why do you think this will change things? This will change things 

because it is the light at the end of the tunnel. For the rest of Europe the 

vaccine rollout is extremely slow. France on;y recorded 516 vaccinations 

in the first week. French officials vowing to speed up what some in France

are calling a Fiasco. Prime Minister Joehson said the lockdown could extend 

beyond February if the virus isn’t under control. Police and health experts are 

also worried about an an African Strain that’s even more mutated than the

UK varient. And the more the virus mutates the more it’s potentialy resistant 

to the current vaccines.
