UK and Scottish Government blunders mean we're not out of the woods

Responding to comments from National Clinical Director Jason Leitch indicating that Scotland’s lockdown exit plan has been pushed back by up to 10 weeks by the more infectious Delta strain, health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton said:

“The U.K. government messed up by allowing the Delta variant to take hold, while the Scottish Government has presided over a vaccine program which is still too slow. If it weren’t for these errors, we might be almost out of the woods.

“We need to learn from Wales and make our vaccine rollout faster and more accessible, especially to younger people who move often and may have missed their blue letter.”
