PM Johnson's plan "for living with covid": All curbs to go on July 19
In spite of the Delta variant of covid virus playing havoc in England, a confident Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that all the restrictions like wearing of mask and maintaining social distance will be lifted on July 19. Because, he says, by July 19 every adult will have had the chance to receive a first dose of covid vaccine. (See statement)

LONDON, July 6: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced that face mask will no longer be legally required and the social distancing rule will be scrapped from July 19 when the covid lockdown restrictions will be lifted. However, the decision will be reviewed on July 12 after an assessment of the data available then.

Johnson told a Downing Street news conference on Monday that even after removal of the requirement of wearing a face mask, he would continue to wear one himself in crowded places "as a courtesy".

He said the decision follows the success of the vaccine rollout. "We run the risk of either opening up at a very difficult time when the virus has an edge, has an advantage, in the cold months, or again putting everything off to next year," Johnson said.

Social distancing and mask wearing in public transport and in shops are legally required now. The Prime Minister said vaccination certificates will not be mandatorily required.

Johnson explained that limits on attendance at weddings and funerals will go, table service rules at bars and restaurants and venue check-in requirements will be scrapped, limits on named care home visitors will be lifted, council will have no powers to enforce rules, and large-scale events will not legally require certification.

In view of the surging cases linked to the Delta variant, the final scrapping of lockdown rules was last month extended to July 19.

It is believed that in summer months people will be largely out and the peak will be flattened. So scientists are for a summer lifting.

The Prime Minister said, "If we don't go ahead now when we've clearly done so much with the vaccination programme to break the link... when would we go ahead? ... We run the risk of either opening up at a very difficult time when the virus has an edge, has an advantage, in the cold months, or again putting everything off to next year."

However, Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said "lifting all protections in one go, when the infection rate is going up, is reckless".

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have their own coronavirus rules.
