January 19th According to a report by Sky News Network on the 19th, a survey report by the British government consulting agency (SAGE) shows that 40% of the respondents said that once they are vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, they will relax or no longer abide by the rules of epidemic prevention and control.
In a press conference on the 18th, British Health Secretary Matt Hancock warned people not to be happy too early.
According to the survey of British consulting agencies, 29% of the respondents said that they would no longer strictly abide by the epidemic prevention measures after vaccination, and another 11% said that they might completely get rid of the restrictions of the epidemic prevention measures.
In response, experts warn that the slack of people’s awareness of prevention will make the effect of vaccination “a loss”. The NHS medical director also stressed that social distancing is essential and cannot rely entirely on the coronavirus vaccine.
It is reported that more than 4 million people in the UK have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus, more than half of whom are over 80 years old.
The UK government said that by mid-February, the number of vaccinations will reach 15 million.
