nother milestone has been passed in the vaccine rollout, with more than 20 million people in the UK having now had their first dose.
The latest figures show 20,089,551 have had their first jab, while 796,132 have had a second – on the way to a target of every adult in the UK having their first dose by the end of July.
As I've said here before, it is a very good achievement, with the programme hopefully set to continue on its current trajectory. But one thing that Chris Hopson said in the wake of the announcement caught my attention. Hopson is the chief executive of NHS Providers – which represents hospital trusts in England – and has written a number of opinion pieces for The Independent during the coronavirus pandemic.
