The British government could impose restrictions on millions of Brits who are unvaccinated and follow Europe.

Austria is to go into a full national lockdown from Monday for a “maximum of 20 days” and Germany is expected to announce restrictions in coming days.

Austria’s Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg has also said from 1 February it will be a “requirement to get vaccinated.”

There are fear that the UK could implement some form of restrictions as the cases in Briton is 544 cases per million and climbing weekly whilst Germany’s rate is 639.

It is expected that the German Chancellor Angela Merkel could ban unvaccinated people from entering bars and restaurants and could ban citizens from using public transport.

Professor John Ashton, formerly regional director of public health for the North West of England, said it “may come to that” in the UK.

He told Good Morning Britain, “I fear that it might come to that.
“We all need to be playing our part, and at the moment, it’s as though the thing is over.

“We really need to get back to wearing our masks, social distancing and yes, passports.

“This is not about civil rights, it’s about winning the battle with this virus and not throwing in the towel, which is what seems to be being advocated by the business community.”

He added that the UK “should be getting our secondary school kids” double-jabbed before Christmas.

He added, “There are still millions of people who are not double vaccinated in the UK.

“That’s a problem because the virus is still circulating, and while the virus is circulating, there is the potential for more mutations.”

Boris Johnson has warned that the “storm clouds are gathering” over Europe which could easily threaten the UK.
