There will be a document from the British Treasury, sent to Downing Street and filtered in the past few hours, behind Boris Johnson’s government’s decision not to launch a Plan B more restrictive of anti-Covid measures for the time being – despite pressure from some experts and media scrutiny – Faced with an increase in injuries in recent weeks. According to the Politico.Ue website, which wrote that it was intercepted, the document notes the potential cost to the UK economy of (partially) restoring the restrictions that such a scheme would entail in the amount of £18 billion.

What weighs – reads text cited by the site – will not be to reintroduce the obligation of masks on mass transport and in the busiest public places – completely abolished in England from 19 July and replaced for the time being with a simple recommendation – but the introduction of some form of Green Pass vaccination And above all, the consequences of signaling a widespread return to work from home, as expected through this reserve strategy. Hence, according to Politico, Johnson’s choice to continue to instead insist on Plan A: a reintroduction of vaccines as a buffer against the most serious repercussions of infection (hospitalization and mortality) by accelerating the third dose for everyone. The weak and those over the fifties and the only dose available in the Kingdom for children between 12 and 15 years. All this on the heels of data on cases of the past few days, which returned to decline even without Plan B.
