Report: Brexit helped U.K. evade EU’s COVID bureaucracy

CARMARTHEN, WALES - APRIL 07: A nurse prepares the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine, at the West Wales General Hospital in Carmarthen, on April 7, 2021 in Carmarthen, Wales. Moderna, the third vaccine to be approved for use in the UK, is to be given to patients in Wales from Wednesday. Five thousand doses of the vaccine were sent to vaccination centres in the Hywel Dda University Health Board area on Tuesday. The vaccine's approval by the UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency was announced on January 8. The UK has bought 17 million doses of the Moderna jab enough for 8.5 million people.

A new report found Brexit helped the U.K. escape the European Union’s bureaucracy when it came to its handling of the coronavirus. According to the Free Beacon on Thursday, the U.K. was able to approve and administer COVID vaccines and medicines quicker and more efficiently than the EU.

Experts said the EU is now struggling to ensure the safety of its citizens amid a rising number of reports detailing potentially deadly side effects allegedly caused by vaccines. Meanwhile, Britain’s COVID response has been more coherent.

However, critics said Britain’s COVID lockdown was too stringent and unnecessary.

“And the people need to get back to work,” London resident David Ross said. “Society needs to get back to normal, so this is great news, but everything should be open. Schools: 100%. Everything back open again. I think we’re over the worst of it. They keep talking about third, fourth, fifth wave. These are politicians, not scientists or doctors. So bring it on, I say.”

Currently, the EU expects to reach herd immunity by June while the U.K. plans to remove all COVID restrictions that same month.
