British authorities are discussing the possibility of introducing "covid passports" for those who have been vaccinated against the new type of coronavirus.
The newspaper The Sunday Times writes about this with reference to its sources in the government of the kingdom.
According to the newspaper, such a measure will allow the owners of the new document to move around the country more freely, in particular to carry out business trips, than those who refuse vaccination. It is expected that the corresponding decision can be announced in parliament on Monday by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson.
It is assumed that during his speech to lawmakers, the head of the British government will also inform about the end of the National quarantine in England from December 2 and the return to the system of local restrictions, but taking into account the introduction of tougher measures in more cities. At the same time, as the newspaper noted, at the end of December, the government will still allow the British to gather in small companies to celebrate Christmas, but then the harsh measures will return and will operate until early spring, when mass vaccinations of residents become possible.
As of Sunday, more than 54.6 thousand people have died from the coronavirus in the country, which is the highest figure in Europe. The number of infected people in the UK is 1.49 million.
