We may have to wait a bit longer for life to return to normal as the easing of all restrictions in England on 21 June could be delayed. Ministers had been urging caution and many scientists had called for restrictions to remain in place so that more people can be vaccinated as cases of the Delta variant rise. The average number of daily confirmed cases is increasing with the latest figures showing there were 7,490 cases on Sunday. With this in mind, senior ministers are considering signing off a decision to delay lifting all restrictions. Government sources have told us most of the current rules could stay in place for another four weeks.
29th May to 4th June - 63 Confirmed Cases.
