PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Prime Minister Boris Johnson is holding a Coronavirus press conference as part of the roadmap out of coronavirus lockdown restrictions. And he said the restrictions could finally be lifted by June 21 as part of a four-stage plan, Boris Johnson has announced as he declared “the end really is in sight”. The Prime Minister told MPs earlier the approach was “cautious but also irreversible”, with the impact of the vaccination programme replacing the need for lockdown measures. He said a “wretched year would give way to a spring and a summer that will be very different and incomparably better”. The Prime Minister acknowledged that scientific modelling suggested that lifting lockdown measures would increase Covid-19 cases and ultimately deaths but insisted the restrictions could not continue indefinitely. In the first phase, all pupils in England’s schools are expected to return to class from March 8, with wider use of face masks and testing in secondaries. Socialising in parks and public spaces with one other person will also be permitted from that date. A further easing of restrictions will take place on March 29 when the school Easter holidays begin – with larger groups of up to six people or two households allowed to gather in parks and gardens. Further easing should take place up to June 21, subject to reviews. The Prime Minister is expected to begin talking at 7pm.
