On Monday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed that the UK will lift Covid-19 lockdown restrictions for the foreign holidays on May 17.
According to an official statement on Monday by UK Prime Minister Mr. Johnson, the British official indicated that the four-stage plan of easing the lockdown aims to be “cautious but irreversible”, pointing out any decision on changing the rules was taken according to the data.
“We have got to look at the epidemiology as we progress, we have got to look at where we get to with the awful pandemic. But that’s what it feels like to me right now, “the statement added.
Also in this regard, Johnson said there was a “good chance” of the one-meter plus social distancing rule being scrapped on 21 June.
On the other hand, the maven politician and Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said any easing of social distancing measures would have to be “cautious and careful”.
More than 1,649 people in the UK have now been infected by the coronavirus, and more than hundreds of people have died from Covid-19, according to English media.
Notably, tourists and travellers from amber countries will need to quarantine, while red-list countries have the strictest rules, with only British nationals allowed to return and they must pay to stay in a government quarantine hotel.
