Johnson postpones abolition of corona restrictions

The “Day of Freedom” has to wait. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (56) has announced that the corona measures in England will not be completely lifted as of June 21, as originally planned. His government is now aiming for July 19 as the date for the removal of all restrictions.

This is due to the so-called delta variant of the corona virus, which first appeared in India. Although the British vaccination campaign is well advanced and more than 56 percent of adults are already fully vaccinated, the Delta variant has caused the number of infections in the country to skyrocket again.
