Mr Johnson has signaled that current anti-Covid measures are likely to get tougher as he appears on the Andrew Marr Show.
He said, “What we’re doing now is the tiering system, which is a very tough system … and unfortunately it’s probably going to be more difficult to keep things under control.
“But we’ll check it out.”
He added, “And we have the prospect of tens of millions of dollars in vaccines hit the market.
“And that, I think, is something that should keep people in what I predicted when I was on your show in October is going to be a very bumpy time right now.
“It’s bumpy and it’s getting bumpy.”
Boris Johnson told the Andrew Marr Show that there will be 530,000 doses of the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine at around 540 GP vaccination sites and around 101 hospital locations on Monday, “in addition to the approximately one million vaccinations.”
“There are still a few million Pfizer (vaccines) to be used,” he added.
“We’re rolling it out as soon as possible. And it’s not so much about distribution, and I’ve seen some of your previous guests say, “Well, you know we don’t have enough retired doctors to manage it.”
When asked about reports of potential volunteers being put off by additional training and forms on ‘de-radicalization’ and ‘fire drills’, Mr Johnson said,’ I find this absurd and I know the Health Secretary is taking steps to cut this pointless red tape. ”
