This is stated in an official statement published on the organization's website.

“It is irresponsible and downright dangerous that the government decided to push forward with plans to lift the remaining COVID-19 restrictions on July 19.

Thus, the government refuses to fulfill its promise to be guided by the data of the National Health Service of England, ”said the chairman of the British Medical Association, Dr. Chaand Nagpole.

According to the specialist, the abolition of coronavirus restrictions next week, when most of the country's population has not yet been immunized, will provide an opportunity for the virus to strengthen.

He referred to data from a survey of the organization among doctors, according to which 90% of doctors believe that wearing a mask is mandatory in public transport, and another 75% support mandatory social distancing.

As of Monday, July 12, 34,471 people were diagnosed with COVID-19 coronavirus infection in the UK.

The total number of cases of coronavirus infection registered in the country exceeds 5.1 million.
