Hancock: Door not shut on int'l travel this year

British Health Secretary Matt Hancock said on Monday the government had not yet ruled out the option of allowing international travel this summer amid the still ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Hancock told ITV the biggest concern the authorities were facing were new strains of the virus and considering various scenarios for preventing fresh spikes later in the year. He added one of the possibilities was giving the public the third dose of vaccines against the disease in autumn.

Earlier in the day, England eased some of the measures imposed to curb the spread of the virus, allowing travel within its territory and certain outdoor activities.
