Covid cases in Britain are expected to rise after the lockdown ends on June 19th

The number of coronavirus cases in Britain will rise considerably from current levels, health minister Sajid Javid said today as Borris Johnson announced an end to almost all Covid-19 limitations by July 19th.

“We must be straight with the British people: cases of COVID-19 are surging and they will continue to increase significantly. We can relatively expect that by the 19th of July, the number of daily cases will be far elevated than today,” Javid told parliament.

Sajid favored the verdict of ending the restrictions by saying, “We can’t live in a world where the only aspect that we are thinking about is COVID and not about all the other health problems, our economic problems, our education challenges and we have to make use of a vaccine that is thankfully helping.”

He pointed that almost 7 million people have not come forward during the pandemic for help from the NHS with their health issues, which was shocking for him when he newly joined the office.

It is anticipated by the health minister that cases can rise to 50,000 per day after the covid restrictions curb.
