Johnson announces roadmap for easing in England


Additional relaxations will follow from 29 March. People are then allowed to meet in the open air with six, or two households. It is also allowed to sport outside in a team and people can travel outside their region.

Then the idea is that society opens up a little more every five weeks. That then depends on four conditions: the vaccination program is progressing as planned, the figures show that the vaccinations reduce deaths and hospital admissions, the infection figures are such that there is no risk of the care being overrun and new virus variants must not cause an increased risk.

With the announcement, Johnson offers perspective for the first time in months, says correspondent Tim de Wit: “We are coming out of a very strict lockdown, things are going well on many points, but at the same time Johnson indicates that easing will only come in small steps. is also the risk of new mutations. “

In the United Kingdom, one third of adults have already been vaccinated. Johnson nonetheless remains cautious. De Wit: “The current lockdown must be the last time a lockdown is needed, says Johnson. That could also be a lesson for the Netherlands: even if many people have already been vaccinated, it will take months before society can open again . “

Countries determine their own measures

Johnson is Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, but the other countries in the UK – Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – can take their own corona measures. In Scotland, the youngest primary school students are returning to school today.

Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon is expected to release a roadmap sometime in the coming days. She warned her population not to book a holiday at Easter yet, writes the BBC.

Wales intends to end the strictest lockdown measures within three weeks and hopes to open non-essential stores and hairdressers. Northern Ireland will look at when the current measures can be relaxed until 18 March at the earliest.
