Beth Rigby, of สล็อตออนไลน์ Sky News, asks if lifting the measures is "cautious but irreversible" despite the country facing an increasing epidemic. The prime minister says he wants to strike the right balance and the government will rely on people to exercise personal responsibility and following guidance. He says the vaccine rollout has "put us in a very strong position" compared with many other countries but we must remain cautious. "I don't want people to feel that this is, as it were, the moment to get de-mob happy, this is the end of Covid. We are very far from the end," he says. The prime minister adds that if a new variant which escapes the vaccines comes along then, "We will have to take whatever steps we need to do to protect the public." Rigby asks Chris Whitty whether unlocking now will make more restrictions in the winter more or less likely. England's chief medical officer says the winter is "inevitably" going to be tricky. He also says the transmissibility of the Delta variant makes things difficult.
