New Delhi: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s visit to India is unlikely. He was invited as the chief guest at the Republic Day Parade in Delhi next month. Boris’s visit to India is unlikely as a new strain of the coronavirus has been reported in the UK, according to the president of the British Medical Association, Chaand Nagpaul said.
‘“Obviously we can’t make a decision today about something five weeks from now… changes to the virus’ reality happen on a day-to-day basis. But one consideration is that the trip to India may not be possible, particularly if this level of infection and spread continues,” Dr. Nagpaul told. “But if the lockdown in London and other parts (the UK capital and other areas are under extremely stringent Tier 4 restrictions) controls the spread of the virus, then maybe,” he said.
