British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that countrymen will not be legally obliged to wear masks and maintain a distance of at least one meter (three feet) in closed public places from this month. With this, he confirmed the plan to remove the restrictions despite the sharp increase in the cases of infection.
‘Depends on desire’‘
Johnson confirmed on Monday that when the process of lifting the lockdown in the country reaches the final stage, it will be up to personal will to accept the legal restrictions. He said that the process of lifting the restrictions would start from July 19. However, the final decision in this regard will be taken on July 12.
‘Towards a different era’
Earlier on Sunday, Housing Minister Robert Jenrick said that it appeared that there was room to lift restrictions and return to normalcy due to the success of the vaccination. He had said that now we have to move towards a different phase, learn to live with the virus, take precautions and live with responsibility. At the same time, when asked about the need to apply masks, he said that if the figures are correct then this can be done.
