Here’s Boris Johnson’s plan for living with Covid.
All of England’s coronavirus rules will be lifted later this week after Boris Johnson set out his plan for living with Covid but without any restrictions on people’s lives.
The few Covid-19 laws remaining in England will soon be relaxed, including self-isolation, returning the country to the same levels of freedom enjoyed before the pandemic for the first time since the first lockdown began in March 2020.
The changes are not UK-wide, with Wales and Scotland employing more cautious strategies, but Northern Ireland had already moved to lift all its restrictions last week.
All of England’s coronavirus laws were due to expire on March 24 however the prime minister announced two weeks ago at PMQs that “encouraging” data was allowing him to bring forward the date by a whole month.
Mr Johnson said the plan was about “finally giving people back their freedom” after “one of the most difficult periods in our country’s history”.
