Lifting all Covid-19 measures next week, when a significant amount of the population has not yet been fully vaccinated, will give this deadly virus a chance to strengthen itself, BMA council chairman, Dr. Chaand Nagpaul, said in a communique.

According to the specialist, the decision will cause an increase in contagions and hospital admissions, in addition to the risk the virus will mutate to variants more resistant to the vaccines.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed on Monday that as of next week, all Covid-19 restrictions will be eliminated in England, despite admitting that daily positive cases could reach 100,000, and hospitalizations and deaths due to complications related to the disease will also rise.

As part of the last stage of the plan for the quarantine’s de-escalation imposed in January, as of Monday, July 19, there will be no restrictions on the number of people who can meet indoors or outdoors.

Social distancing, and the mandatory wear of facemasks in stores and public transportation will be eliminated. Nightclubs and discos will reopen their doors.
