UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson decided to extend the coronavirus restrictions in England, as he said the nation needs to "wait a bit longer." England was set to remove all coronavirus restrictions on June 21, yet the Delta variant has become the dominant strain in recent weeks, worrying health officials. The British prime minister said the restrictions would continue until July 19, although he allowed weddings and funerals to be held with the attendance of 30 people. European soccer championships may also take place, according to the British prime minister. "From the evidence, I can see right now, I am sure that we will not need more than four weeks and we will not need to go beyond July 19," the British prime minister told a news conference. The British prime minister added that from July the country will be in a better position with vaccination still ongoing in the country.
