Boris Johnson Says Vaccines Will NOT Become Mandatory!
Boris Johnson revealed today that his tough new tier rules will last until spring after the coronavirus lockdown ends next week.
The PM's new rules will be significantly harsher than before, plunging millions into stricter rules, and will last until at least the end of March.
As he laid out the Government's Covid Winter Plan, he hailed the "sacrifices of millions of people across the United Kingdom" which had helped to control the virus and drive cases down.
The new strategy aims to get the R rate below one and keep it there with the fresh set of draconian rules, which are likely to be opposed by a string of disgruntled backbenchers.
Mr Johnson admitted that "many more regions will fall - at least temporarily - into higher tiers than before" meaning more Brits face being unable to see friends and family inside until around Easter.
He said: "The scientific advice, I am afraid, is that our tiers need to be made tougher".
In a frank address to the public alongside Chris Whitty this evening, he admitted that "those months [ahead] will be hard" - not least because of the pressure on the NHS.
