By mid-summer, the coronavirus epidemic in Britain will decline, provided that the British will follow the advice of the authorities, said Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
The UK can turn the tide with coronavirus in 12 weeks. This was announced on March 19 at a press conference by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, writes the Russian Air Force service.
According to him, by the end of June the epidemic of coronavirus in the country will decline, provided that the British will follow the advice of the authorities.
According to Johnson, now one of the British infected with coronavirus is undergoing testing of a new drug, and clinical trials of a new vaccine will begin within a month.
The British prime minister noted that the country’s authorities are negotiating the acquisition of antibody test kits that are produced in the body in response to coronavirus. So, soon the British will be able to check whether they have already had COVID-19.
“This is important, since many people can tolerate the disease on their feet without symptoms, and those who are ill will most likely develop immunity and they can resume normal life,” the BBC notes.
The UK government is considering the possibility of paying out one Briton a thousand pounds per month over the course of the epidemic as an unconditional basic income. This measure is designed to help those who lose their jobs in the coming weeks due to the closure of outlets and small businesses.
