PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Boris Johnson is outlining his roadmap for easing coronavirus restrictions, which will reveal how England will come out of its third national lockdown. The prime minister will be setting out key dates on which he hopes to be able to lift restrictions in four stages. The first stage will commence on March 8, when schools will reopen to all pupils and socialising in outdoor public spaces with one other person will be allowed. A further easing of restrictions will take place on March 29 with larger groups allowed to gather in parks and gardens. Mr Johnson is also expected to announce further details on the reopening of non-essential shops and services and the hospitality sector. At each stage, the government will be looking at four key tests, which must be met for restrictions to be eased. The four tests relate to the success of the vaccine rollout, evidence of vaccine efficacy, an assessment of new variants, and keeping infection rates below a level that could put unsustainable pressure on the NHS. Mr Johnson will deliver is statement to MPs at around 3.30pm. He is then set to hold a coronavirus press conference from Downing Street later this evening, at around 7pm.

. 15:40Data not datesHe says a first dose will be given to every adult by the end of July. As more people are vaccinated, more restrictions can be eased. The level of infection is similar across England so restrictions will be eased everywhere at the same time. Outdoor activity will be prioritised. Data not dates will lead decisions. 15:39'One way road to freedom'The PM starts by saying this road map will guide us cautiously but irreversibly out of lockdown. We are able to take these steps thanks to the vaccination programme, he says. No vaccine can ever be 100 per cent effective, he says, and the virus will mutate. We cannot escape the fact that lifting lockdown will result in more cases, hospitalisations and death - whether now or in six or nine months. There is no credible route to a Zero Covid world, he says. He says we are setting out on what he hopes is a one way road to freedom. 15:35PM to start statement shortlyA short break has just been ordered by the Speaker.
