He stated this was due to the varieties of individuals refusing or unable to take the vaccine in addition to the rare couple of for whom the vaccine does not work.
” Even if you have a reasonably little proportion of people still remaining vulnerable, that still equates to a huge number” at danger he said.
” All the modelling suggests at some point we will get a rise in the virus. We hope it doesn’t happen soon – it may occur later on in the summertime if we open slowly, or if there is a seasonal result it may occur over the next autumn and winter,” he included.
” But all the modelling suggests there is going to be a further surge, and when it happens it will find individuals who have not been immunized or where the vaccine has not worked. A few of them will be hospitalised and sadly a few of them will pass away.”
” That is simply the reality of the situation,” Whitty stated, adding that the vaccine will see the cases to death “go right down, however not right to zero”.
