“We don’t know if the corona virus cases have been reduced enough to end the second lockout on December 2,” said Matt Hankok.
The health secretary said, “We hope that the national lock can be replaced with a layered system as it was before.”
Meanwhile, Dr. Susan Hopkins of the Public Health UK said the lowest tier had “little effect” and that the government should consider strengthening measures to “get us in the winter months until everyone gets vaccinated”.
Mr Hancock celebrated the “great advances in medical science” of countries fighting coronavirus infection in the form of vaccines, but acknowledged that the UK had received only five million doses of moderna. The UK has already received 40 million doses of the vaccine from Pfizer / Bioendech, which uses the same technology as Moderna and should be in the UK before Christmas.
The government says the corona virus layer structure may be different when returning after being locked up
The government is considering its corona virus alert tiring system for the UK, which could be changed when it returns after being locked, a cabinet minister has said.
Robert Genrick said the government wants to see “greater stability” in the locked post-corona virus layer system and will examine whether previous layers are effective.
A revised system, if needed, would be decided “within the next week or so,” he said, giving people time to plan for December.

The government expects to ‘significantly ease’ corona virus activity in December
Social Secretary Robert Genrich said the government expects there to be a “significant easing” of corona virus activity in December.
Appear Times Radio, Mr Genrik was asked if the government could be forced to ban indoor gatherings for Christmas if the Govt-19 cases are still high.
He said: “We don’t know yet. The hard yard we made in November is designed to be very casual in December for most people in the UK so we can go to the shops, use hospitality and, as much as possible, we can be together as a family at Christmas.
“We can see from the data that the combined approach in October and early November has had an impact, especially in some parts of the country.
“It’s too early to tell the real impact of the new national measures, which are two or three weeks late, but we will be in a position to make that decision by the end of November.”
He added: “We are confident that the Prime Minister and the government will have a very firm expectation that we will significantly reduce operations by December.”

The professor says vaccine advances are ‘exciting’
Sir John Bell, a professor of medicine at Oxford University and a member of the government’s vaccination task force, said vaccine advances were “exciting” and that positive news was likely to come from other vaccine candidates, including Oxford / Astrogeneneka.
He told BBC Radio 4’s company Today Program: “Until Pfizer data came out last week it was not certain that you could actually get vaccinated against this virus.
“On the back of those results, it was very powerful and I expect positive results from Modernna because the stage is very similar.
“Furthermore, although some other vaccines, including the Oxford / Astrogeneca vaccine, are not certain to be successful in the coming weeks, I suspect it is more likely.
“So, I think this is great news because we can wait so long for an effective vaccine like there are in many diseases, so I think that’s why it’s so exciting.
“This is a chapter. We’re in the second chapter now – we need to get it to the people; it needs to be distributed globally; we’re getting enough of it – no one is doing this vaccine size. These are big challenges.”
He added: “We can get vaccines very effectively in the UK and most Western countries.
“So I think the idea that we are going to vaccinate a very large percentage of the population in the spring is entirely possible.
“I think it’s going to make a big difference because people will be vaccinated because the spread will fall to a low level, we may not be completely normal, but things are going to look dramatic. It’s different in the spring.”

The government wants ‘more stability’ in the latter locking layer system
The government wants to see “greater stability” in the locked post-corona virus layer system, Robert Genrick said.
Asked the BBC breakfast If a difficult system changes the previously sorted arrangements, the Community Secretary said: “We will see if the measures we had in the old layers are effective.
“Remember, they were slightly different in different parts of the country because there was a basic activity in Tier 3, which the chief medical officer and others always said were just the beginning, and then we asked the locals to consider the areas. They would be willing to go further than that, some did,” Some decided not to.
“So I think we want more consistency in the new layers, so we need to look at the evidence of which of those activities actually had the most impact on the virus so we can take a more resource-based approach.
“We haven’t come to an end yet, to be honest, but we’ll be back within the next week.”
