British scientists warn Johnson against lifting the closure .. and confirm: Corona is still dangerous

More than 4,000 scientists, doctors, nurses and other medical staff signed a letter on Wednesday evening rejecting the British government's plans to lift coronavirus restrictions on Monday, July 19, according to the BBC.

In their letter, published in the Lancet medical journal, they emphasized their belief that the decision was dangerous and premature, and stated: “The UK government must reconsider its current strategy and take urgent steps to protect the public. We believe the government is embarking on a dangerous and unethical experiment, and we call on it to pause plans to abandon mitigation measures on July 19, 2021,”

They added: "The government should delay the full reopening until everyone is vaccinated and until mitigation measures are in place. Public health measures should include those called for by the World Health Organization (global mask wearing in closed spaces, even for those who have been exposed to the virus). vaccinate them)

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that restrictions would be lifted earlier this month, calling the 19th "Freedom Day" and asking: "If we can't open in the next few weeks...when can we?"

According to the British government, 86.4% of the population received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and 64.6% were fully vaccinated, and more than 32,000 new infections were reported on Wednesday, with a sharp increase in new cases reported for July.
