British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said this during a briefing broadcast by Sky News.
“Today I can confirm that from Monday, April 12, we will move on to the second part of our plan (to ease the quarantine) … We do not see anything in the current data that could force us to move away from the current plan,” he said.
Thus, the following establishments will be working again in the country in the near future:
— the shops;
— sports clubs;
— hairdressing salons;
— beer halls;
— other places served outdoors.
From mid-May, Johnson said the UK could lift the ban on international travel.
“We hope that we can do this from May 17, but we would not like to become hostages of fortune and underestimate the difficulties faced by other countries that the British would like to visit,” he said.
Earlier it was reported that Britain set a record for vaccinations: more than 660 thousand people per day.
