The “single biggest threat” to ending all 封鎖 restrictions on 21 June is “the government’s incompetence,” Sir キールスターマー 言った.

Aris Katzourakis, a professor of evolution and genomics at オックスフォード大学, said that his team had wanted to analyse the spread of variants across the continent, but were unable to do so.

British tourists risk importing variants from European ‘blind spots’

British holidaymakers risk bringing coronavirus variants back to the UK from Europe because data “blind spots” make it hard to see which nations are harbouring mutated forms of the virus, scientists have warned.

The ability to effectively sequence Covid cases and share genomic data is taken into consideration when countries are designated red, amber or green list.

But information from some nations, which is uploaded to the Global Initiative on Sharing All Influenza Data (Gisaid), is scarce.

Britain’s Wellcome Sanger Institute said that there’s an “urgent need to increase sequencing capacity in all areas of the world”.

Aris Katzourakis, a professor of evolution and genomics at Oxford University, said that his team have been unable to carry out analysis because of limited data.

“We basically realised how little genomic data is available on the public repositories in other European countries," 彼は言った.

“Blind spots” could be created, 彼が追加した, as lockdown and travel restrictions are lifted across Europe and it becomes harder to spot the emergence of new variants, which risk being imported back to the UK.

Government ‘incompetence’ threatening lockdown exit, Starmer says

Sir Keir Starmer has lambasted the prime minister’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying that the “single biggest threat” to unlocking on 21 June is government “incompetence”.

Writing in The Observer, Sir Keir accused the government of being distracted by “melodrama, civil war and covering their own backs” after Dominic Cummings’s explosive evidence in front of a joint select committee earlier this week.

He went on to claim that the number of deaths during the UK’s second wave was “avoidable and unforgivable”, and that this failure “lies with the prime minister”.

He added that “slow decisions on border policy” allowed the Indian variant to take hold in the UK, and that the prime minister has shown “callous disregard” for the elderly in failing to protect care homes.

We may never know whether Boris Johnson said Covid ‘was only killing 80-year oldswhen he delayed a second lockdown,” Sir Keir wrote.

What we do know is that the man charged with keeping them safe showed callous disregard for our elderly, as he overlooked the incompetence of his Health Secretary.
