Will We Avoid Another Lockdown this Christmas ?

British MP Jeremy Hunt, who chairs the Health and Social Care Select Committee, calls for shorter wait for Covid booster jabs before Christmas.

We must strengthen our booster and teenage vaccine programme to avoid another lockdown this winter, he said addressing the Commons.

Relaxing six-month gap between second and third doses would speed up rollout, he further added.

Thus, he has called for the British government to cut the time required between Covid vaccine doses to give more booster jabs as concern grows about the pace and organisations of the latest rollout.

“If you look at the higher hospitalisations, cases and death rates [in the UK] compared to countries like France and Germany, the heart of it is not actually things like mask-wearing and Covid passports, it is their higher vaccine immunity.”

Thousands of Covid deaths expected in UK

This came as Britain faces the prospect of thousands of annual Covid deaths for years to come, scientists have warned.

Scientists said that the UK might learn to live with thousands of Covid-related deaths for years to come.

The Covid-19 vaccines don’t seem to be a long term solution for the health crisis as new variants emerge, and people will have to live with it.

Seasonal waves of the virus will sweep the country every winter. It will join other seasonal viruses, including influenza. However, it is likely to kill those with underlying conditions with the provided vaccines.

The numbers of Covid cases seem to establish through this summer, but it will rise again, causing a fourth wave this autumn. This is expected to occur yearly for a while.
