‘Out of control’ new coronavirus strain in UK, govt calls meet
Belgium and the Netherlands suspended flights from the UK on Sunday and several other countries were weighing similar measures to stop a new, fast-spreading virus strain that UK PM Boris Johnson says is up to 70% “more transmissible” and other UK authorities describe as “out of control”.
It is not known, however, if the new strain is more dangerous and if the recently released vaccines are effective against it. The new strain has also been detected in the Netherlands, Denmark, Australia and South Africa.
The Union health ministry has called an urgent meeting of its joint monitoring group on Monday to discuss the new strain. the emergence of a mutated variant of the coronavirus in the UK, which has led to a surge in the infection rate there.
European countries began closing their borders to travellers from the United Kingdom as British health secretary Matt Hancock said on Sunday that the go nment has imposed a strict Christmas lockdown in London and southeast England because the new strain of the coronavirus was “out of control”.
Hancock warned that the strict measures that affect almost a third of England’s population could stay in place until the virus vaccine is fully rolled out. “We acted very quickly and decisively,” Hancock told Sky News, justifying the “stay at home” order, ban on family gatherings over Christmas and closure of non-essential shops. “Unfortunately the new strain was out of control. We have got to get it under control.”
The new restrictions in England, which came into effect at midnight on Saturday and effectively quarantined the capital and other areas from the rest of the country, are the harshest measures to be taken since the country’s first lockdown in March. Train stations in London on Saturday night filled with crowds of people scrambling to leave the city.
