British Prime Minister Johnson will announce on Monday local time that he will walk out of the “road” of the coronavirus lockdown in an effort to gradually reopen the battered national economy under the world’s fastest vaccination program.
It is reported that more than 120,000 people have died from the coronavirus epidemic in the UK, and the official death toll is also the fifth in the world.
The UK is now facing the largest economic downturn in more than 300 years.
The report said that the rapid start of vaccination, coupled with the severe national blockade for nearly two months, means that Johnson can now develop a phased plan to relax restrictions, prioritizing a mixture of reopening schools and outdoor activities.
“Our decision will be made on the basis of the latest data on each step, and we will be cautious about this approach so that it will not affect the progress we have made so far,” Johnson’s office revealed.
