Boris Johnson says UK will not escape third wave of Covid pandemic

BBC, 23 Mar 2021
The United Kingdom will not escape the effects of a third-wave of the pandemic, given the sharp rise in cases in parts of the European Union.

That's the warning from the prime minister Boris Johnson, who said people be “under no illusion” about the dangers.

One minister also warned the UK might put “all our European neighbours” on the red list of countries where arrivals are either banned or put in quarantine hotels.

Meanwhile the row between the UK and the EU over vaccine supplies has intensified, with a threat that EU could block doses of vaccines manufactured in the EU from being exported to the UK.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by political editor Laura Kuenssberg, Europe editor Katya Adler and medical editor Fergus Walsh.
