Labour shadow minister David Lammy has predicted the coronavirus crisis will be over by summer next year.
It follows Monday’s announcement of a vaccine breakthrough by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, with early studies showing its jab is 90% effective in stopping people getting COVID-19.
Shadow justice secretary Lammy, speaking to Yahoo UK’s White Wine Question Time podcast, said he had previously been telling people to “write off 2021”.
His views have now changed following Pfizer’s breakthrough, which has sparked hopes of an end to social distancing and return to normality.
