The United Kingdom's prime minister is keeping England's pandemic restrictions in place until mid July after pressure from health experts.
England was set to reopen next week.
Even with a relatively strong vaccination effort, prime minister Boris Johnson said it's "sensible to wait just a little longer" as Britain tries to beat back a COVID surge.
It's been driven by the Delta variant, which accounts for most new cases there. That variant is more contagious than the original virus.
