The UK’s coronavirus alert level is to be lowered to three from the current level of four as scientific experts said Covid rates are now down.
The downgrade was due to the large efforts of the public who fought to bring down the Covid rates, said, the chief medical officers for England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
In a statement from the four chief medical officers for the UK said, “Thanks to the efforts of the UK public in social distancing, and the impact we are starting to see from the vaccination programme, case numbers, deaths and Covid hospital pressures have fallen consistently.
“However Covid is still circulating, with people catching and spreading the virus every day so we all need to continue to be vigilant. This remains a major pandemic globally.
“It is very important that we all continue to follow the guidance closely and everyone gets both doses of the vaccine when they are offered it.”
