BREAKING: It is expected that the Government will announce that three households will be able to mix indoors on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
According to The Mirror, plans were approved by the leaders of all UK nations at a Cobra meeting this afternoon. The meeting was led by Minister for the Cabinet Office, Michael Gove.
The announcement is expected to come just days after Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the UK during a press conference that it will be months before enough COVID vaccines would be available to the public.
In an address to the nation via videolink Boris Johnson said:
“We can hear the drumming hooves of the cavalry coming over the brow of the hill but they are not here yet.
“Even if all three vaccines are approved, even if the production timetables are met – and vaccines notoriously fall behind in their production timetables – it will be months before we can be sure we have inoculated everyone that needs a vaccine.”
