Boris: ‘Possibility’ that lockdown could be extended past July 19th

It was a surprise to nobody that Boris Johnson announced a four-week extension to lockdown last night. What has received less attention was the Prime Minister’s confession that there is a ‘possibility’ lockdown could continue past July 19th if ‘there is some new variant that is far more dangerous – that kills people in a way that we currently cannot foresee or understand. That’s obviously the case.’ Labour will reportedly back the unlocking delay in the House of Commons at the end of this month – Telegraph
