In principle, it was planned that the last restrictions that are still in force in this country would be lifted on March 24.
“I intend to return on the first day after the school vacation break to present our strategy for living with covid-19″affirmed the “premier” today.
Johnson explained that “assuming that the current and encouraging trend in the data (of infections and deaths) continues”, he trusts that his Government “can end the latest domestic restrictions, such as the legal requirement that requires self-isolation in case of giving positive in a (covid) test, a whole month ahead of schedule.”
The conservative leader today faced the scrutiny of the deputies for the first time since he introduced small tweaks in the configuration of his cabinet, a political maneuver perceived as an attempt to placate the “Tory” parliamentarians who question Johnson’s future as leader after the scandal of the parties celebrated during the pandemic by members of the Executive.
