London. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has expressed doubts about the planned lifting of all remaining crown restrictions in England on June 21. When asked if he was less optimistic than he was in late May, Johnson told Sky News on Saturday: “Yes, that’s certainly appropriate.”
The spread of the Delta variant of the virus, which was first discovered in India, is very concerning. This variant will transfer more easily. It is also true that the number of cases and the number of hospitalizations are increasing. It is not yet possible to say to what extent this will affect the death toll.
Schedule announced for Monday
Johnson wants to announce on Monday what his next schedule will look like. In reality, the last restrictions in England should be lifted on June 21. So, for example, nightclubs could reopen and theaters could fill their halls again.
Gastronomy and shops have reopened for weeks. According to the PA news agency, Johnson is expected to announce a delay of up to four weeks.
The other parts of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland decide independently on their Crown measurements. However, they only differ in details. In some cases, planned easing has already been postponed due to the spread of the delta variant.
