UK health authorities have reported 1,770 new cases of Covid-19 and two deaths in the past 24 hours. The total number of infections since the beginning of the pandemic thus rises to 4,434,860, while the death toll is updated to 127,605. Meanwhile, interviewed by Sky News, Minister Michael Goove said he expects Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement of the easing of the restrictions tomorrow, which is expected to start on May 17 as originally planned. “It is thanks to the success of the vaccination program in the UK and the common sense of our citizens that we can progressively relax the measures,” said Gove, adding that this also implies “changes to some of the rules on international travel”.
