UK's Johnson says no reason to change COVID-19 unlocking plans

  • On Monday, there will be a smaller change, allowing groups of 6 to meet up outside. Foreign travel will be banned until at least May 17, which is also the earliest date indoor hospitality and performance venues might re-open.
  • Although Johnson has outlined dates at which he plans to ease restrictions, he has been clear that it is "data, not dates" which will determine whether the unlocking can proceed to schedule.

UK PM Johnson says wants openness on EU vaccine trade

  • "One thing I would say is that we're on the side of openness. That's where we are. I don't want to see blockades of vaccines or medicines, I don't think that's the way forward either for us or any of our friends," Johnson said in a pooled interview for broadcasters.
  • He also denied a report that he said capitalism and greed gave Britain its success in vaccinating its population.

UK Johnson's ex-aide blames ‘smoking ruin’ at health ministry for COVID failures

  • Dominic Cummings, Johnson's senior adviser until November last year, said Britain's more recent success in rolling out a rapid vaccine programme was a result of a decision to take vaccine procurement out of the ministry's hands.
  • The health ministry was "just a smoking ruin in terms of procurement and PPE and all of that", he said.
