The Covid isn’t going anywhere and even the chief scientist of WHO has said that the pandemic isn’t showing any signs of slowing down as of now. There are new variants of virus being detected and some are more transmissible, more fatal. The delta variant which is considered to be the variant behind the surge in cases in India during the second wave, was also the one found in the UK. In India, it is being advised to rigorously follow the covid protocol to avoid inviting the third wave. However, UK which was also one of the countries badly hit by the virus, has surprised everyone with its decision. From July 19th onwards, COVID-19 restrictions in the country will be eased and lockdown will be lifted. Making the announcement, UK Health Secretary Sajid Javid said that indoor venues will still be urged to check the COVID-19 status of the customers. As a result, the mandatory mask-wearing rule will be removed, but people will be advised to continue wearing them to ensure safety. Now this was supposed to happen on 21st of June but it was delayed because of the surge in cases of Delta variant. Now the country is finally opening up. What does it mean for UK, what is in store ? and what we can learn from the approach of the UK, we will discuss this all today, with a doctor who works in England. Dr Sangram Patil
