Boris Johnson – UK better placed to fight coronavirus
The UK is “incomparably better placed” to fight coronavirus now than it was last September. This despite cases being higher, because of the high level of vaccinations and antibodies in the population, Boris Johnson said
Plan A, he said, is to continue to boost vaccination numbers, ask people to think about using face coverings, wash hands and get a test. PM said there are five million more people who should be getting the vaccine.
Watch as Prime Minster Boris Johnson led a Downing Street press conference to address the Government’s Covid-19 winter plan for England.
The PM said the government was keeping in “reserve” extra measures to tackle coronavirus in the autumn and winter – a Plan B – including Covid passports, mandatory face masks and asking people to work from home.
On the possibility of Covid passports, which have been criticised by some MPs and businesses, the PM said it was “just not sensible” to “rule out completely” the option.

The Government is to embark on a record-breaking Covid booster programme in a new race against time to avoid future lockdowns.
