The chief medical advisor to the British government has said that the next few weeks of the Covid-19 pandemic will be the worst, as the new strain of the Corona virus spreads rapidly across the country.
On Monday, the chief medical advisor added: “Normal life will return after the new Corona virus epidemic, but it is a bit remote, and it will depend on people adhering to the rules of closure and the comprehensive distribution of vaccines.”
The chief adviser, Chris Whitty, pointed out that the United Kingdom is currently at the worst point in the epidemic, and that the number of deaths due to this epidemic, amounting to 81,431 people, is “extremely horrific”.
When asked if life will return to normal, Witty said: “I am sure that we will return to life as it was before at some point, and this is not in doubt, as this is the life we all want to live.”
He explained that once the vaccines were introduced, “people will be able to lift the restrictions, and this will not happen all at once … I hope that life will return to being exactly the same as before … but we are very far from that at the moment.”
In a related context, a British official said that the authorities are concerned about the spread of the Corona virus in supermarkets, especially among people who do not wear masks in them.
“We are concerned that, for example, in supermarkets, we need to make sure that people wear masks and follow the one-way system,” he told Sky News.
“The most important thing to do now is to make sure you adhere to … compliance with the rules when people go to supermarkets,” he said.
