Sajid Javid - we see no need to go beyond 19 July

The new Health Secretary has confirmed that, with the data heading in the right direction, the government currently see no reason to go beyond 19 July in ending restrictions and restoring our freedoms.

  • The British people, who have sacrificed so much to protect the vulnerable from COVID-19, should have their remaining freedoms back as quickly as this can safetly be done..
     
  • With the numbers heading in the right direction – including new data showing that our vaccination programme has so far prevented an estimated 7.2 million infections and 27,000 deaths in England alone – the current view is that there is no reason to go beyond 19 July in easing the current restrictions.
     
  • At this crucial moment in our fightback against this pandemic, we must keep our resolve and keep on our roadmap to freedom – so, together, we can beat this pandemic and we can build back better.
