British Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed the closure will be lifted in England next week, but with conditions, as Corona’s injuries decline.
Johnson said in a speech to the British Parliament, today, Monday, that the country’s lockdown because of the Coronavirus will end on December 2, nearly a month after it imposed the second lockdown.
The British Prime Minister said: “For the first time since the start of this miserable virus, we can see a way out of the epidemic, and we feel we will succeed next year.”
Johnson announced England would return to a “tiered system” of the severity of restrictions, with varying degrees of rules imposed on regions of the country depending on the number of coronavirus infections.
The government decided on a second lockdown early this month to curb the second wave of infections.
The United Kingdom has recorded over 1.5 million cases of coronavirus, according to data from Johns Hopkins University, making it the third-largest number of infections recorded in Europe, after France and Spain.
However, there are indications that new infections are declining in the country, as 18,662,000 recent cases were reported in the United Kingdom on Sunday.
Over the previous seven days, there were 142,747 confirmed cases, but this is roughly 20 percent less than what was reported in the week before it.
