Lockdown restrictions ease in UK; All restaurants, bars, hotels, theatres and museums to reopen

All restaurants, bars, hotels, theatres and museums in Britain will reopen soon. Britons will be able to hug friends and family again in public, with the easing of social distancing rules that have been in place since the pandemic began. The British Prime Minister said that we have reached another milestone in our road map out of lockdown, but we must take this next step with a heavy dose of caution. People must continue to play their part in stopping Coronavirus, said the Prime Minister.

Mr Johnson also said though the rules are slightly different in the United Kingdom’s four constituent parts, restrictions are being eased in England, Scotland and Wales from today while they will be eased slightly later in Northern Ireland.

The ban on foreign travel has also been lifted and replaced with new rules. The scars of COVID-19 remain. The UK’s official death count is 127,679 – Europe’s highest figure and the world’s fifth highest, after the United States, Brazil, India and Mexico, according to Johns Hopkins University.

The British economy last year had its worst decline in three centuries while the government spent hundreds of billions of pounds to save jobs and companies and the Bank of England doubled its bond buying programme.
