London’s Mayor Boris Johnson declared that the British government rescinding almost all COVID restrictions on July 19th.

More than 4,000 scientists, doctors, nurses and other professionals signed a letter saying “We believe this decision is dangerous and premature.”

“The UK Government must reconsider its current strategy and take urgent steps to protect the public, including children. We believe the government is embarking on a dangerous and unethical experiment, and we call on it to pause plans to abandon mitigations on July 19, 2021,” they added.
“Instead, the government should delay complete re-opening until everyone, including adolescents, have been offered vaccination and uptake is high, and until mitigation measures, especially adequate ventilation and spacing are in place in schools. Until then, public health measures must include those called for by WHO (universal mask-wearing in indoor spaces, even for those vaccinated),” they wrote.
