UK PM Johnson says no need to move to COVID “Plan B”

Even though he was concerned about rising coronavirus cases in parts of Europe, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said there was no need for a “Plan B” of mask mandates, vaccine passes, and work-from-home orders at this time.

“At the time, we don’t see anything in the data that suggests we need to go to Plan B,” Johnson said in a broadcast clip on Monday. “We’ll stick to Plan A. But we must acknowledge that there is a storm of infection raging in areas of Europe.”

“There is always a risk that a blizzard could come from the east again as the months get colder. The best protection for our country is for everybody to come forward and get their booster.”
