Coronavirus cases remain high and now the prime minister is preparing to put in place plans to prevent the NHS from being overrun.
He is expected to announce plans to introduce booster vaccinations for those over 50 and allow teenagers to get the vaccine.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “The pandemic is far from over, but thanks to our phenomenal vaccine program, new treatments and tests, we can live with the virus without significantly restricting our freedoms.
“Today I’m going to have a clear plan for the fall and winter when the virus has a natural benefit to protect the profits we’re making.”
