End of pandemic is in sight, discipline still crucial - Hancock

British Health Secretary Matt Hancock asserted on Tuesday that the end of the coronavirus pandemic in the United Kingdom is within sight, urging, at the same time, the public to abide by the rules with the discipline it has been showcasing so far.

In an interview with Sky News, Hancock underlined that the government's goal is to "come out of [the pandemic] as fast as safely possible," and attributed the Cabinet's optimism, in part, to the fact that the number of infections with one of the COVID's new variants has "fallen quite sharply."

"We can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and the best way to get there is for everybody to keep abiding by the rules, as they are in a very, very large part," Hancock said, underscoring that the relaxation of measures is "only possible" because of the "successful vaccine rollout" in the country.
