He said that despite concern about the emergence of a new strain of the Corona virus, first discovered in India, the authorities believe that the vaccines are effective.

Al-Zahawi added that there are concerns about the presence of the Indian strain in some parts of England, but there is no evidence that the strain (B.1617.2) has a more severe impact on humans, or that it is not affected by vaccines.

“The road map, starting from Monday, is still in effect, because vaccination operations are continuing, which keeps people away from hospitals and protects them from contracting the virus,” he told Sky News.
