No vaccine passports: UK PM to set out winter COVID-19 plan Updated: 2021-09-13 09:45:52 KST

The United Kingdom is looking to roll back plans to impose vaccine passports and put an end to some emergency powers.
Prime Minster Boris Johnson is set to announce the new COVID-19 related measures for the winter on Tuesday, and Health Minister Sajid Javid said in an interview he didn't anticipate more lockdowns.
In addition, PCR test requirements for travelers will be removed, he said.
Instead, the government is looking to push harder for vaccinations to combat the virus.
Already more than 80 percent of British residents 16 or older have been fully vaccinated.
The decision on booster shots and the inoculation of 12 to 15 year olds will be announced later this month as well.
This comes as the country continues to report a high number of cases with 260-thousand new cases last week and around a thousand deaths.
