To contain the resumption of coronavirus infections, the British government is considering a postponement of up to four weeks for the lifting of the remaining restrictive measures, initially expected in England no earlier than 21 June. This is what sources confirm to the BBC. The last step in the process of lifting restrictions involves the end of any restrictions on social contacts. Sources in Downing Street point out that there is no final decision yet and an announcement is scheduled for Monday with various options on the table, with the four-week postponement being currently the most accredited amid growing fears for the recovery of the infections and the transmissibility of the Delta variant. The extension of the restrictive measures would allow the vaccination program to have greater effect.
