Push for one million jabs a day to save summer How three days of inaction let the Indian variant take hold in Britain Analysis: Why modellers are worried about variant Pubs and restaurants 'will need more taxpayer support' if June 21 delayed Jeremy Warner: Variant anxiety must not derail Britain's stonking recovery Subscribe to The Telegraph for a month-long free trial The Indian variant is likely to become the dominant variant in the UK, the Health Secretary has warned, as he urged caution ahead of tomorrow's reopening. In an interview with the BBC's Andrew Marr, Mr Hancock said: "The strategy is to replace the restrictions with vaccination as the main defence against this virus. And that strategy remains on track. " “I think it’s quite likely that this will become the dominant variant. We don’t know exactly how much more transmissible it is, but I think it’s likely that this will become the dominant variant here." A final decision on step four - which would see the removal of all restrictions - will be made on June 14, Mr Hancock added, and will depend on whether the Government's four tests have been met. "With three of the [tests] we're in great shape, with number four there's much of a risk," he said. Mr Hancock pointed to data that showed the majority of those in hospital with the Indian coronavirus variant in Bolton have not received a vaccine despite being eligible. "The main message I’ve got for everyone is get vaccinated. If you’re 38 or over, please come forward and get the jab." Follow the latest updates below.
