British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to lay out a cautious roadmap in Parliament on Monday to ease the strict lockdown restrictions in the country. The plan will set out the latest data on infection rates, hospitalisations and deaths, as well as data showing vaccine efficiency.
Meanwhile, Johnson’s plan would allow lawmakers to vote on the regulations, after which the final roadmap will come into action in the coming weeks.
Johnson issued a statement in this regard:
Meanwhile, Johnson said in a statement, “Today I’ll be setting out a roadmap to bring us out of lockdown cautiously. Our priority has always been getting children back into school which we know is crucial for their education as well as their mental and physical wellbeing. We will also be prioritising ways for people to reunite with loved ones safely.”
“Our decisions will be made on the latest data at every step. We will be cautious about this approach so that we do not undo the progress we have achieved so far. The sacrifices each and every one of you has made to keep yourself and others safe. We have therefore set four key tests which must be met before we can move through each step,” he added.
UK suffered over 1,20,000 deaths so far:
Boris Johnson further said, “Our priority has always been getting children back into school which we know is crucial for their education. We will also be prioritising ways for people to reunite with loved ones safely.”
The British government has set a new July 31 target to ensure all adults have received their shots. So far, more than 17.5 million people have already received a single dose of vaccine. Meanwhile, over 1,20,000 people have died in the country so far.
