Neil Ferguson said : "We're at a critical point in the ongoing race between the virus and our vaccination program. The country is starting to see an uptick in hospitalisations and our understanding of the precise efficacy of vaccines against the Delta variant is still developing. Step 4 will increase virus transmission when it goes ahead, so the delay announced gives more time to boost vaccination coverage and to refine assessments of future risk before we move forwards once more" External link

Neil Ferguson said ( about Neil Ferguson ) : "It’s important to say that most people being hospitalised at the moment with this variant, and with any Covid variant, are unvaccinated. “So, it’s clear that the vaccines are still having a substantial effect, though it may be slightly compromised”. Professor Ferguson said the Delta variant, is anywhere between 30% and 100% more transmissible than the previously dominant Kent variant, now known as Alpha. “The best estimate at the moment is this variant may be 60% more transmissible than the Alpha variant," “There’s some uncertainty around that depending on assumption and how you analyse the data, between about 30% and maybe even up to 100% more transmissible” External link

Neil Ferguson told : “Perhaps of more concern for the UK though is that some countries are notably seeing a significant fraction, five to 10 per cent of cases, of the South African variant. When infection levels go up in France, to 30,000 cases a day, that implies there’s at least 1,500 to 2,000 cases a day of the South African variant.

Neil Ferguson said ( about Neil Ferguson ) : "It’s important to say that most people being hospitalised at the moment with this variant, and with any Covid variant, are unvaccinated. “So, it’s clear that the vaccines are still having a substantial effect, though it may be slightly compromised”. Professor Ferguson said the Delta variant, is anywhere between 30% and 100% more transmissible than the previously dominant Kent variant, now known as Alpha. “The best estimate at the moment is this variant may be 60% more transmissible than the Alpha variant," “There’s some uncertainty around that depending on assumption and how you analyse the data, between about 30% and maybe even up to 100% more transmissible” External link
