UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson would like to see people back at work by 26th May. Only if cases of the corona virus are low enough according to sources.
Mr Johnson and other cabinet members are hopeful to see some shops, factories and offices reopen on the Tuesday after the Bank Holiday. But his plan is only the “best hope” and could, of course, all change if cases are to rise again. Speaking at a press conference on Thursday he said that
“it feels that we have come under a massive peak, like being in a long tunnel” but also warned of a second phase of COVID-19. He stated that we “have to be careful now not to run into an even bigger mountain”
According to a poll carried out 60% of Britons are worried about the lockdown being lifted and would feel uncomfortable doing what before felt normal. Like going to bars and restaurants. A cabinet source said that we now have to build peoples confidence as they have been terrified. We have to persuade them that it is fine to go back to normal.
Pubs, bars and restaurants are expected to remain closed and schools could return in June.
