In the United Kingdom, where the number of infected people is increasing after the regulation of the new coronavirus was lifted, the fourth booster vaccination was started for elderly people aged 75 and over on the 21st.

In the UK last month, regulations on the new coronavirus, such as the obligation to quarantine after infection, were almost abolished, and Prime Minister Johnson has clarified the route to coexist with corona while taking measures such as additional vaccination.



Under these circumstances, in England, where London is located, the fourth booster vaccination was started on the 21st for elderly people aged 75 and over who are at high risk of becoming seriously ill.



In this autumn, we are considering expanding the scope of booster vaccinations, such as those over 50 years old.



In the UK, the removal of regulations has eliminated the obligation to wear masks, allowing citizens to act freely, and a virus called "BA.2", which is one of the Omicron strains and is said to be highly infectious. In recent days, the number of newly infected people has increased to around 90,000 per day.



In an interview with local media on the 21st, Health Minister Sajid Javid said that although the number of infected people and hospitalizations has increased, it is lower than the peak in the past. I'm watching, but I'm not particularly concerned at this point. "
