Prime Minister Boris Johnson has taken to the lectern at No 10 Downing Street to update the UK on the latest coronavirus news.

He was joined by the Chief Medical Officer for England Prof Chris Whitty and Dr June Raine, the chief executive of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.

Watch the next briefing live on BBC iPlayer ๐Ÿ‘‰

Here were some of the key points:

The PM says the UK’s medicines regulator, the MHRA, has confirmed the benefits of getting the Pfizer-BioNTech and the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine “far outweigh any risks”, in response to concerns about a small number of people getting blood clots after receiving a jab
MHRA chief executive Dr June Raine says the “rigorous scientific review” shows there is “no difference” in the number of blood clots occuring in people who have had the jab compared with those who have not
England’s chief medical officer, Prof Chris Whitty, says the findings support the overwhelming view of scientists across the globe – that the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe
Johnson says the continued fast pace of the country’s vaccine rollout will help life to get back to normal
He says the UK should have “no anxiety” about its vaccine supply, despite the warning of a dip in available jabs for next month
Johnson adds that the Indian government hasn’t blocked any exports to the UK and says the delay is due to various technical reasons
The PM also revealed he will get his first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine tomorrow.

  1. Yeah of course you will. Like the Australian health minister that has been ill since having it. You will be getting salt water and you know it.

  2. who writes their scripts. nobody ever asks this do they! why? bcoz we are socially conditoned to not querstion authority, when you do, ur silenced and ridiculed. u stand ur ground and ur arrested.. COINCIDENCE????

  3. Incredible, I love his little smirk ‘we know that the mass of deaths after the vaccine are those over 50,” Whitty. Right, of course, because over 50 are the ones being massed vaccined. This is like saying, ‘we know that those who die when driving vehicles are 17 and over,’ yeah, because all driving are likely to be over 17. lol

  4. Funny that for the first time is history the world follows Israels footsteps and not the other way around

  5. At least his โ€˜sleeve rolling up anticsโ€™ will be at least 50% credible for once in his life.

  6. Since the age of five i have been only to aware of the casual cruelty and petty sadism of British life but this has gone on for far to long destroying livelihoods sentencing so many to the joy of Ian Duncan Smiths Universal Credit,i had Covid three days of a touch of shortage of breath and yes feeling unwell for about a week and fine ever since and i am in my mid sixties.

  7. An inquiry is needed to correlate this synthesised virus with The Spanish flu virus from which it was reverse engineered.
    Taubenberger is your man.

  8. Boris will be getting the Astrazenecar vaccine, at the same time heโ€™ll be giving Dido Harding ยฃ22 billion for messing up track and trace.

  9. I’ve had an existential crisis because of this stupid virus and I’m 14 will this ever get better
