It seems that the protection will end for almost four million people in England on March 31, according to the new road map, which is not locked.
The 68-page document, unveiled by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, lists key dates between March 8 and June 21 when the rules on coronavirus in England will be repealed.
The government says the rules will be eased at the time if figures allow – including vaccinations, hospitalizations and deaths.
This month, an additional 1.7 million people in England are said to be protecting – because they are classified as clinically vulnerable.
The protection list includes people with basic health conditions, such as certain cancers and those who have had an organ transplant, reports The Mirror.
Protection means you need to avoid contact with others whenever possible and stick to the house as much as you can – stay away from work and trade.
The roadmap reads: “The government anticipates that it will no longer be necessary to advise on protection after the end of March 2021.
“The government will confirm the advice and next steps closer in time to protect clinically extremely vulnerable people.”
Guards can still go outside to exercise or attend health checkups, but it is advised to minimize contact with others and avoid busy areas.
You should not meet anyone outside the support balloon and try to stay within two meters of people even within your household.
I can still meet another person at a safe distance outdoors, like an open space.
The new tool has identified those at high risk of serious illness or death.
As a result, 1.7 million additional people in England will be sent in a letter asking for protection.
There are currently around 2.2 million people on the list in England, which will expand to almost four million when additional people are included.
More than 800,000 of them are between the ages of 19 and 69 and will be a priority for their vaccination program, the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare has confirmed.
The current protection list includes people with individual risk factors, such as those with various cancers, people on immunosuppressive drugs, or those with severe respiratory conditions.
But as the pandemic progressed, medics found that some people were at greater risk than others because they had more risk factors.
Using medical records, the new tool assesses which people are at higher risk based on several factors, including age, ethnicity, body mass index (BMI), other health conditions, and zip code, indicating the level of deprivation.
Dr Jenny Harries, deputy chief medical officer for England, said 1.7 million, if they join the list, will receive additional support available to those deemed clinically extremely vulnerable, including drug deliveries, priority supermarket deadlines and legal sick pay.
“All of these people who were first identified are those who did not have an individual clinical condition that we were previously able to identify through a clinically extremely vulnerable group, but these are people who have multiple personal risk factors and underlying health conditions that move them to a higher group. at risk, “she said.
Dr Harries said the approach was “risk averse” to “protect as many people as possible”.
Officials will advise that protection continue until March 31.
