British Health Minister Sajid Javid has insisted that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) will not go away forever and that we must learn to live with the flu.

“Covid-19 is not going to go away,” Javid told Sky News on the 20th (local time).

When asked if he intended to compare the flu with COVID-19, Javid said, “Yes, because the flu shows that we need to learn to live with it.”

“Sadly, people also die from the flu,” he said.

“We need to take reasonable and appropriate action to continue our lives,” Javid added.

Minister Javid’s remarks appear to be due to the so-called ‘Plan B’, which includes public transportation and school masks, recommendations for telecommuting, and the use of vaccine certificates, will be completely lifted from next week.

He explained, “I will return to Plan A because Plan B worked,” and explained that this was because of the Corona 19 vaccine booster shot.

“We are leading Europe in the transformation of a pandemic into an endemic and showing the world how we can live with COVID-19,” Javid said.

In response to Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s appearance in Parliament the day before, he said he had no intention of extending the measures beyond March 24, when the current statutory deadline for self-isolation obligations expires, and that the expiration date could be advanced. It will come down,” he said.

However, experts are concerned about the government’s subsequent easing of regulatory measures.

Chand Nagpol, president of the British Medical Association (BMA), called the government’s lifting of the plan “premature”.

Chairman Nagpol said that while the national health insurance system is still under pressure, such measures “has a risk of creating a false sense of safety”. said
