PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The Prime Minister is expected to make a national announcement from Downing Street today, May 14, following emergency talks over the spread of the Indian variant. Boris Johnson is set to address the nation at 5pm, just days before England is set to take its third step along the roadmap out of lockdown, according to The Mirror. It comes amid uncertainty that the next stage of the coronavirus roadmap will go ahead on schedule. Mr Johnson is expected to be joined by Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty. Earlier, a virus expert warned the final stage of lockdown easing is “in doubt” following a surge in the Indian variant of Covid-19.

But vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi said that as long as the government’s ‘four tests’ have been met, they will “absolutely” go ahead with the June 21 easing. He said: “We will share the data with the nation, to demonstrate that those tests have either been met or otherwise. That is what data, evidence-driven policy is about.” The four tests are: That the vaccine deployment programme continues successfully That evidence shows jabs are sufficiently effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths in those vaccinated That infection rates do not risk a surge in hospitalisations which puts unsustainable pressure on the NHS That the Government’s assessment of the risks is not fundamentally changed by new variants of concern Read More Related Articles Covid vaccine latest: Can I still have my coronavirus vaccine if I have a cold?
