Normality could return in summer 2021 if vaccine succeeds - UK health minister

Mon, 21st Sep 2020 10:35

LONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Britain could return to
pre-lockdown normal by next summer if a vaccine succeeds and was
rolled out in the early part of 2021, health minister Matt
Hancock said on Monday, adding that the most vulnerable might be
vaccinated at the end of this year.

"For the mass rollout we're talking about the first bit of
next year, if all goes well... There's still a chance of it
coming on stream before Christmas, but we've then got to roll it
out, and the first people who get it, are the people who are
most vulnerable people," Hancock told ITV's This Morning.

Asked when there would be a return to the old normal,
Hancock said: "If... one of the vaccines comes off, in the early
bit of next year, we are looking, I hope, by next summer."
