Javid on ‘Covid is over’ risk and new variants

The health secretary has said he worries about an “vaccine escape variant” of Covid.

Sajid Javid warned people not to “let down their guard” and that “we have got to keep working at it”.

In his first appearance before the Health and Social Care committee, he told MPs there were a “lot more defences today” to deal with any new variant, but people must not assume was “almost all over or… all over”.
