UK Hopes For Lockdown Free May Be Destroyed!

 The UK is currently under the latest threat of contagion of the Covid-19 variant from India or known as Delta, which will cause the country to possibly have to postpone its plans to reopen the blockade completely on 21 June.


Most recently, UK Finance Minister Rishi Sunak was reportedly ready to accept the postponement of up to four weeks for the entire economy to reopen.


According to The Guardian citing sources close to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, saying that Sunak is not bound by a June 21 date to lift all restrictions, and the main Treasury concerns are irreparable freedoms and businesses having a flaw.


Earlier, government scientists had told UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the Delta B.1.617.2 virus pressure would explode, and Britain would enter the dreaded third wave.



On Monday, Secretary Matt Hancock told that the Delta variant had spread by at least 40%, and it was quickly becoming the dominant pressure in Britain, surpassing the variant first discovered in England.


In fact, the country has reported new cases an increase of 91% from last week, with 6048 new cases having been recorded in the last 24 hours.


This indirectly put pressure on PM Johnson to announce the removal of all coronavirus restrictions in the UK on June 21 as previously planned by the government.


The pound continued to move with limited movement following this latest pressure, trading around 1.41400 against the USD during the Asian session.
