The remaining corona measures in England will be lifted from July 19. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce this during a press conference on Monday.


The British government reports that Johnson will outline his plans for the latest easing in England, including his plans around keeping distance, wearing masks and working from home.

According to the British government, the number of infections in the country due to the Delta variant is increasing, but this has not yet resulted in more hospitalizations or deaths.

At the press conference, Johnson is expected to say that people will learn to live with the coronavirus, as they are currently doing with the flu. For example, people will still become seriously ill from the virus and die from its effects, but this will be much less common than before the large-scale vaccination campaign in the United Kingdom.

The UK is at a relatively advanced stage of its vaccination campaign. By Sunday, 86 percent of the population had had at least one shot. In addition, 64 percent have also already received a second vaccine.

Despite this, the number of infections has increased again in recent weeks due to the Delta variant of the virus, which is now dominant. For that reason, the last relaxations were previously postponed by four weeks so that more people could vaccinate first.

On July 12, the knot about letting the relaxations continue will be finally cut.
