PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! People will once again be able to hug, meet indoors and go out to the cinema or theatre from Monday as Boris Johnson urged the public to enjoy their new freedoms with a “heavy dose of caution”.  The rapid spread of the new Indian variant has overshadowed the next step of the roadmap, which will see the ban on holidays lifted and pubs and restaurants throw open their doors to customers for inside service. The Prime Minister called on the country to “play their part” in keeping the virus under control, as they are allowed to enjoy overnight stays in other households for the first time this year. News and analysis, direct from Westminster to your inboxEmail address is invalidThank you for subscribing!Sorry, there was a problem with your subscription.Scientists now believe the B1.671.2 strain of the disease is likely to become the dominant variant in the UK, having seen case numbers rocket in recent weeks. But despite the unsettling figures, Mr Johnson has proceeded with the roadmap by lifting a significant number of Covid restrictions. He said: “We are keeping the spread of the variant first identified in India under close observation and taking swift action where infection rates are rising.  “The current data does not indicate unsustainable pressure on the NHS and our extraordinary vaccination programme will accelerate – with second doses being bought forward to give the most vulnerable maximum protection.

. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said a decision on whether the Government will be able to proceed with its plans to completely unlock the country on 21 June will be taken on 14 June. Sage member and former chief scientific adviser Professor Sir Mark Walport said the country faced a “perilous moment” as indoor socialising was allowed once again.  Professor Sir Mark warned it will be “extremely important” to keep an eye on the numbers over the next few weeks.He told Sky News: “The problem is that the data takes some while to emerge, which is why there’s… every grounds to be very cautious about the ability to open up in June.“But I mean I think it’s fair to say it is a perilous moment. We have a variant that shows good evidence of being more transmissible and possibly significantly more transmissible.”The major reopening has been widely welcomed, however, particularly by the cultural sector with cinemas and theatres opening their doors for the first time since last year. Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden hailed the move, insisting it was a chance to “get back to the things we love”. “Of course I recognise the anxiety people feel as we assess the situation over the next fortnight in the run up to Step 4, but today is a huge moment for our hard hit cultural landscape,” Mr Dowden said.
