UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock, speaking to Times Radio this Tuesday, said that Britain is keeping a close eye on the Indian variant of COVID-19. We are putting a lot of resources into tackling the Indian variant, Hancock added further.
- Measures such as enhanced tracking and tracing, travel restrictions and the roll-out of the vaccine should keep it at very low levels.
- There isn’t any evidence yet that the vaccine doesn’t work against it.
- We are going to bring forward a long-term plan on social care.
