British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has presented the government’s plan to gradually lift restrictions imposed by the coronavirus, The Guardian reports.
According to the plan, the restrictions will be lifted in four stages, depending on the epidemiological situation. The first stage, which should begin on March 8, – schools should open in England, citizens will be allowed to communicate one-on-one in parks and other public places. From March 29, it is planned to allow meetings in groups of up to six people.
The start of the second stage is scheduled for April 12. Shops, hairdressers, nail salons and libraries are expected to open from that date. At the third stage, which, according to the plan, will begin no earlier than May 17, the authorities will consider the issue of resuming international flights. Also from this date it is planned to open pubs, restaurants, cinemas, hotels. By June 21, the authorities plan to lift the remaining restrictions on social contacts.
A vote on the roadmap for lifting restrictions is due in the House of Commons in early March.
