Boris Johnson said England should not have been locked out on Monday and should return to normalcy as much as possible. The reopening date is now set for July 19.
The date was set after the Prime Minister postponed the reopening for four weeks due to rising infections caused by the delta variation.
Restrictions will be relaxed in the UK on July 19. This has now been confirmed by the new Health Minister Sajid Javed.
– We also know that people and companies need protection, so we want every step to be irreversible. This is very clear. “Restrictions on our freedom must end,” the health minister told a news conference today Sky News.
Many speculations arose as to whether the authorities could open the country before July 5, but this has now been denied.
– Anyway, none of the dates we set will come without the risk of corona. We know we can not get rid of it, so we have to learn to live with it, says Javid.
