RT News - July 13 2021 (12:00 MSK)

Claims of fake test results, no checks, no masks at the Euro 2020 final: the World Health Organization says it was 'devastating' for efforts to control the pandemic. Still, PM Boris Johnson is pushing ahead with his freedom day plan for England next week but many in at-risk groups are horrified at the news. We hear from some of them. The battle goes on as Covid's highly contagious delta variant takes root around the world, accounting for more than 90 per cent of new cases in Russia. We return to the red zone to see how healthcare workers are coping with the challenge.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
