UK to be free of COVID-19 by August: UK vaccine taskforce chief

20th Dec 2023

We've got a piece of exciting news for all the study in the UK aspirants from India! 

The UK’s vaccine task force chief Clive Dix has claimed that the United Kingdom will be free of Coronavirus by this August. What does this mean for you? Well, it means the September entry at universities across the UK would be fully back to normal. This in turn means a return to face-to-face teaching, one-to-one tutoring, and socialising with new friends made from around the world!

"Sometime in August, we will have no circulating virus in the UK", Dix told the Daily Telegraph on Friday, 7th May. Dix also said that he expects everyone in the UK to be vaccinated with at least the first dose by the end of July, by which time they’ll also have been protected from all known variants of the virus. He added that the vaccine booster programme could be pushed back to January or February 2022.

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."
