How are they doing it and what does this mean for restrictions are going into Christmas. She he had down and it doesn't a little bit of good news here you know most of your boy into a fairly strict to lock down last month here in the UK each we been in a near total lockdown for months very similar to what we saw the beginning of this pandemic in this. We're for just those five days you can mingle with up to three households so.

Should they again this is really -- the holiday music every one has been waiting for these vaccines are seeing a lot of optimism around ditch humor in Europe there is just a massive rollout operation underway shot in the UK right now we're seeing vaccination centers that are being construct we're seeing. Tears being trained how to administer this vaccine so authorities are doing absolutely everything they can't that this check change these vaccines get approval here in the UK -- they'll be rolled out nearly immediately but she can tell exacted date Diana still somewhat up in the air data action is currently being analyzed so we're not sure when that process is going to be completed -- -- they have an emergency authorization process happening right now and there are some estimates that the approval could happen as early as this week or early next accident and Scott you know we could be just a few days or few weeks away from seeing vaccines actually being administered here in the UK which I think everyone assays as kind of the site should that would be a sigh of relief something that we all wanna see this season snaps and and I can't come soon enough Maggie really forests in London thanks Maggie sese.
