Speaking at Downing Street tonight, Monday, January 18, Health Secretary Mr Hancock addressed the issue of whether restrictions will start to be lifted and schools reopen in early March.
He said: “We’ve got to watch the data and the Prime Minister, when he brought in the national lockdown, set out four considerations.
“We’ve got to see the number of deaths coming down and, sadly, we haven’t seen that yet, we need to clearly see the pressure on the NHS reducing and, as you’ve just heard from Professor Stephen Powis, we are not seeing that yet.
“We must see the vaccination programme working and the rollout is going really well, so that is clearly on track but it’s still got a massive effort, and we need to see the efficacy of the vaccine working in practice saving lives, which we know that it will from the clinical trials but I want to see that actually happening on the ground.
“The fourth consideration is that there isn’t some other new variant in the same way that in December we discovered the new variant that caused so many difficulties and meant that the old three-tiered system ceased to work. We monitor all the time for new variants and, as you know, we’ve taken very significant and rapid action to protect Britain from new variants that are spotted overseas.”
