BORIS Johnson said tonight that he will not be able to confirm for several weeks whether the Indian option threatens to withdraw it on June 21.
The news leaves the Briton even more uncertain after he said days later that he believed the roadmap was in the right direction.
He admitted that there were concerns about the lifting of all the rules next month, as he had previously hoped.
The prime minister said he would soon be able to tell us for sure, saying, “I think in a couple of weeks we will know a lot more than we know now.”
He had previously been informed a week before each isolation date, so we can expect the same here.
The prime minister also said earlier this week that he will provide an update on weddings at the end of the month – which will be an important hint if he can loosen other rules in June, or leave them as they are.
Ministers are increasingly worried about the option for India and announced tonight that the gap between the first and second shots will be closed to try to protect people faster.
When asked if the June 21 unlocking would go as planned, he replied, “I think the truth is that at this stage we just can’t say for sure how things are …
“We are not ruling anything out.
“There is a risk of interruption and delay. We are not excluding anything from the list of measures to combat this virus and this option, and we will do our best to keep you all safe.
