Coronavirus: Boris Johnson presented a plan for the gradual release of measures by the end of June


On Monday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson presented a four-phase plan for the gradual release of measures against the spread of the new coronavirus.

According to him, life in the country could return to normal by the end of June in the event of a favorable development, writes the AFP agency.

Johnson outlined a “gradual and cautious” approach to easing restrictions in England. Among other things, it envisages the return of pupils to schools from 8 March or the opening of retail outlets with non-essential goods and services from 12 April. Restrictions on external activities should also be relaxed.

According to Johnson’s plan, some fans could start attending sports events from May 17. All quarantine measures should be released from 21 June. However, as AFP points out, all these release phases may vary depending on the evolution of the situation and the recommendations of the experts.

Johnson stressed that his phasing-out plan should prevent the need for additional lockdowns in the country.

Britain, with more than 120,000 deaths from COVID-19, is one of the countries hardest hit by the current pandemic. In early December, Britain was the first in the world to launch a mass vaccination campaign.

More than 17 million people have received at least the first dose since then, representing about a third of the UK population.

As infections and hospitalizations rose sharply after the Christmas holidays, the British government introduced a third lockdown in early January. The number of cases is currently falling again, and vaccination is also helping to reduce complications in patients, writes AFP.
