Boris Johnson will relax restrictions in Britain from May 17

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is scheduled to announce the reopening of the economy from 17 May on Monday. The cabinet will sign the third phase of the Kovid-19 sanctions waiver in England. Johnson assesses that the epidemic is under control and normalcy is returning.

At a press conference in Downing Street, the Prime Minister said, “Now, we hope to be able to unlock it carefully, but irreversibly.” Most companies in all areas, except those at high risk, will be able to reopen, including bar services such as traditional pubs and restaurants. This relaxation will be relaxed with some restrictions on foreign travel.

Hotels and cinemas will reopen and indoor games may also resume. Some may reopen to paying audiences, with larger performance and sporting event restrictions. With the restrictions relaxed, the British would also be able to meet privately indoors, with a maximum of six people or two families.


Wedding parties can have up to 30 guests. On the other hand, a group of more than 30 people, even outside, will remain restricted (along with international agencies).
