WEEKLY UPDATE 26 February 2021 – 每周疫情快讯 2021年2月26日

I: Covid alert level reduced to 4

The four Chief Medical Officers for the UK have announced that the number of people going to hospital has reduced so there is no longer a risk of the NHS being overwhelmed. The Covid Alert Level has been reduced to 4.   Restrictions remain in place until the Roadmap out of Lockdown begins – see below. 

II: ‘The roadmap out of lockdown’   

The roadmap out of lockdown was published on Monday.  

Restrictions will be lifted in 4 stages (stage 1 is in two parts), commencing 8th March and finishing 21st June. 

Each stage will only be implemented if 4 tests are satisfied: 

  • Test 1 The vaccination programme is on schedule
  • Test 2 Hospitalisations and deaths are reduced
  • Test 3 The NHS is not overwhelmed by a surge of new cases
  • Test 4 New variants of concern can be adequately managed

If these tests are not met, we will not move to the next stage.  Therefore, it is advisable to wait before you book holidays abroad as restrictions could continue beyond 21st June.   The dates are the earliest we can expect change.

III: New Test Centre in Chinatown

The Utilita Arena test centre had to close down as the site was needed for sports events. However, the good news for the Chinese community is that the replacement site is inside the Hippodrome Theatre in the heart of Chinatown.  This is also a walk-in centre, no booking required.   The test centre is only for people who live or work in Birmingham so you must take proof.

I: 英国新冠警戒级别降至4级

II:“疫情解封路线图”

疫情解封路线图已在本周一公布。

解封将分为“四个阶段”(第一阶段包括两个部分),从3月8日开始,6月21日完成。 

实施解封的每个阶段都必须满足以下的四个条件:

  • 条件1.  新冠疫苗大规模接种继续按计划进行
  • 条件2. 新冠病人住院人数和死亡数大幅减少
  • 条件3. 新增感染病例不会导致NHS医疗系统不堪重负
  • 条件4. 新冠病毒的新变种可以被有效的控制

如果不能满足以上条件,解封将不会进入下一阶段。 因此,建议您暂缓预订国外度假计划,因为封锁可能会持续到6月21日之后。 6月21日是我们预期,最早可以完全解封的日期。
