    DescriptionWhen the Government set out its roadmap in February, Boris Johnson said the release dates would go ahead so long as four tests were met.

    The vaccine programme needed to continue apace; vaccines must prove effective in reducing hospitalisations and deaths; infection rates should stay low; and variants should not change the overall risk.

    So have those tests been met, and is there really a need for a further, four-week delay?
