Hated covid passes ‘SCRAPPED within two weeks as Omicron surge eases and cases plunge,’ according to Boris Johnson.
According to reports, Britain’s despised covid pass system will be phased out in the next two weeks.
Sajid Javid, the Health Secretary, is said to have expressed his “instinctive discomfort” with the certificates, which require proof of covid vaccination or a negative test to enter large events and nightclubs in England.
According to The New York Times, with confirmed covid cases continuing to fall yesterday and hospital admissions flatlining, the threshold for continuing the complicated and contentious system is unlikely to be met.

Smoking marijuana, according to researchers at Oregon State University and Oregon Health and Sciences University, provides no protection against Covid-19.
According to KTVZ, their findings revealed that cannabigerolic acid (CGBA) and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) could be used to “prevent infection.”
