Good news for Hull as PM remains upbeat about lockdown easing on July 19th



“PM Boris Johnson remains hopeful about lockdown easing on the 19th of July.”

Boris Johnson stated that in the next few days he will set out what step four of the roadmap out of lockdown, due in just over two weeks, will look like.

But he also stated some “extra precautions” may be needed urges patience from the UK public over the idea of scrapping isolation for whole bubbles in schools.

The PM remarked that double jabs will be “liberating” for people wanting to travel out of the UK.

Boris remains resolute on easing lockdown on the 19th of July with some extra precautions.

During a visit to a new Nissan manufacturing plant in Sunderland, Boris Johnson was asked whether or not measures such as social distancing and masks would be scrapped on the 19th of July.

“I know how impatient people are to get back to total normality, as indeed am I,” he said. 

“But I think I’ve said it before, we’ll be wanting to go back to a world that is as close to the status quo, ante-Covid, as possible. Try to get back to life as close to it was before Covid.

“But there may be some things we have to do, extra precautions that we have to take, but I’ll be setting them out.” 

Asked about reports that fully-vaccinated people may be able to travel from amber-list countries without quarantining by 26 July, the prime minister told reporters: “Everybody who is frustrated about travel over the summer – double jabs will be a liberator.

“I want travel to be possible but I’ve got to stress that this year will not be like every other year, because of the difficulties with Covid. People shouldn’t expect it will be completely hassle-free.”
