UK Health Official: Masks May Be Needed Thru 2021

The Express reports:

Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance admitted that it may still be a long time before the world gets back to normal despite the distribution of coronavirus vaccines.

While speaking on Sky News he said that in the UK there could be a significant step back to normality as early as spring.

However, he noted that even with vaccines rolled out, there may still be a need for coronavirus measures and restrictions in the next flu season in winter 2021. “It may be that even with vaccinations, next winter, measures like masks and so are in place.”
