London, November 29 British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in the media on the 29th local time that if the new “level control system” is not implemented, it will have “catastrophic consequences” for the British National Health Service (NHS).
Johnson published an article in the British Sunday Mail and appealed to members of Parliament to calm their dissatisfaction and anger about the “New Deal against the Epidemic” in the “leveled control system”. Johnson said in the article that if the government does not introduce a new “graded control system” after the end of the “national blockade”, it will have “catastrophic consequences” for the NHS.
In response to the dissatisfaction of nearly 100 MPs, Johnson said that the epidemic rating restrictions in some parts of the UK may be relaxed at the end of December and may end in February next year. He promised to members of Congress that a new review and vote on the “level control system” would be held in January. He also said that he believed that the “graded control system” would play a key role in avoiding the third wave of the coronavirus epidemic, and that Easter next year would be a “real opportunity to return to normal life”.
The UK will end the “national lockdown” on December 2, and the government cabinet will implement a strict “level control system” instead. The system divides the epidemic areas into three levels: medium, high and very high. 99 percent of the UK’s population will be ranked in the top two levels, with severe restrictions on bars and restaurants and banning different families from interacting indoors.
Recently, many parliamentarians thought that the move would be a “disailment of the British economy” “especially in a critical period before Christmas”, and said that they would vote against the “New Deal on the Epidemic” in the House of Commons of the British Parliament on December 1 to prevent its adoption.
Michael Gove, the British Cabinet Secretary of Staff, issued a media article on the 28th urging parliamentarians to “take responsibility for difficult decisions”.
Gove stressed that at the peak of the first wave of the epidemic in April this year, nearly 20,000 people were infected with the novel coronavirus in all hospitals in the UK.
At present, the level of COVID-19 infection is still disturbing. There are about 16,000 COVID-19 patients in hospitals across the UK. Any sharp rise in the epidemic may lead to another serious threat to the NHS.
Johnson called on all sectors of society to support its “New Deal for the Epidemic” and to cooperate with the “leveled control system”, large-scale virus testing and vaccination efforts.
“We have lost too much and sacrificed too much.” We are doing our best to see all our efforts to stop being burned to the ground by another volcano erupting from COVID-19.”
