Boris Johnson says nothing in data to delay lockdown lift

Lifting of all Covid restrictions on June 21st is still on track, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirms. He was questioned on Wednesday amid growing concerns from scientific advisers to delay easing due to spread of the Delta Covid variant. The final step in the UK government’s roadmap to easing lockdown would remove all remaining social distancing rules and allow all venues to reopen. Ministers are due to meet on June 14th to review Covid data and decide if restrictions easing will go ahead.
