Boris Johnson

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has unveiled a roadmap to finally end the COVID-19 lockdown. The much-awaited re-opening of pub gardens and outdoor cafes has been set to take place in the week of April 12 to 19. The UK is eyeing the final stage of reopening to be completed by July.

Strict lockdowns have been re-imposed since the holidays, but the first major step towards normalcy is expected to start in late March. The re-opening of pubs and restaurants is being seen as a major step towards the recovery of the economy.
