British doctors want some Covid-19 measures to be kept after the July 19 lockdown is lifted, Europe News & Top Stories

LONDON (REUTERS) – England is expected to keep some coronavirus measures beyond July 19, when most remaining restrictions are expected to be lifted, to help limit the spread of the disease, a doctors union has warned Saturday July 3.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed last Monday that most restrictions in England will end on July 19, the day of what has been dubbed “Freedom Day”.

However, on Thursday he said the British may have to continue to take certain precautions, without giving details.

The British Medical Association wants people to continue using face masks and has called for renewed attention to ventilation properties after a recent sharp rise in Covid-19 cases, with 27,125 reported on Friday.

“These data coupled with some increases in hospitalizations suggest that it would be completely wrong in a public health interest to remove all restrictions on July 19 … or to give the public hope that we will have a pre-Covid society. where no one has to take action to prevent the spread, ”Dr Chaand Nagpaul, chairman of the BMA board, told Sky News on Saturday.

Fully vaccinated people who have been in contact with someone with coronavirus will be free within weeks to continue living normally without needing to quarantine, the Times reported on Saturday.
