Covid-19: Portugal off green list and 50% of UK adults fully vaccinated



Here are five things you need to know about สล็อตออนไลน์ the coronavirus pandemic this Thursday evening. We'll have another update for you on Friday morning.


1. Portugal off UK's travel green list
Portugal will be taken off the UK's travel "green" list and relegated to "amber" from 04:00 BST Tuesday - meaning that people can only travel there for essential reasons and have to quarantine upon their return. The government says it follows "increased concern" over the spread of coronavirus variants, including a mutation of the so-called Indian variant, now called Delta.


2. More than half of UK adults have had second jab
Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi has announced that more than half of UK adults have had both doses of a coronavirus jab. He thanked the "brilliant" rollout team for hitting "another important milestone". The prime minister welcomed the "amazing achievement", tweeting: "Now let's finish the job."


3. Surge testing and fast-tracked second doses
Door-to-door testing will begin this weekend in areas of Bedford hit by a coronavirus variant first identified in India, known as Delta. In Scotland, NHS Lanarkshire says it is bringing forward second doses of the Covid-19 vaccine from 12 weeks to eight weeks to "get ahead" of any significant rise in cases of this variant. Meanwhile, in Wales there are calls to "fast-track" second vaccine doses in Conwy.


4. UK open-minded on extending furlough - Gove
The UK government is "open-minded" on SNP calls to extend furlough, Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove says. Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon wants the job support scheme extended "for as long as it is needed". The call came ahead of a virtual meeting between Boris Johnson and the three devolved administrations on how to emerge from the Covid pandemic.


5. The drag queen enforcing Covid rules
Before the pandemic, Madam Tess Tickle performed at The New Foresters, in Nottingham, but now she patrols the outdoor marquee and warns revellers against moving tables. Landlady Debbie Law says she decided to train the drag queen in enforcing coronavirus rules after realising she did not have enough money to pay for extra door staff.
