Prime Minister Boris Johnson has scrapped his Covid-19 Plan B in England, no longer requiring face masks in school or working from home, signaling the beginning of the end of coronavirus.
Johnson also ended the use of Covid-19 passports.
Boris Johnson’s announcement followed a “welcome decrease” in the number of coronavirus infections throughout the UK.
“The numbers in intensive care not only remain low but are actually also falling.”
England will go to “Plan A”, on January 26th and the PM told the House of Commons that soon, self-isolation rules for people who test positive will be scrapped as well.
Will President Biden follow suit in the US? The president will speak today and take questions from the press about the COVID surge on this one year anniversary of his presidency.
