Britain lockdown could be lifted sooner if vaccine effect exceeds expectations- Telegraph

Feb 23 (Reuters) - The COVID-19 restrictions in England could be lifted sooner than June 21 if real-world data on the effect of vaccines is better than expected, The Telegraph reported on Tuesday, citing government sources.

If the positive results from an early Public Health Scotland study on vaccines is replicated in England, "that would change the calculations" on the timings, the newspaper said, citing a senior government source. (Reporting by Bhargav Acharya in Bengaluru; Editing by Leslie Adler)
