Despite the concerns about the Indian variant, the UK covid Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said on Friday, he thinks the roadmap for reopening will stay in place and that the vaccines are delivering.
“There are concerns in some areas of the UK about the Indian variant, where infection rates are rising. “
“We have no evidence that this new variant is more severe on people or escapes vaccines. “
“We can flex the vaccine rollout to deal with this new variant.”
