Boris Johnson: no reason to alter course out of lockdown for England
Guardian, 06 Apr 2021
Boris Johnson has given the green light for pubs, shops, hairdressers and gyms to reopen across England from next Monday.
Announcing it was safe to proceed to the next phase of his roadmap out of lockdown, the prime minister signalled that the coronavirus vaccine rollout was progressing as planned and that infection rates were low enough to ease more restrictions from 12 April.
'We set out our roadmap and we're sticking in it,' Johnson said. 'And I want to stress that we see nothing in the present data that makes us think that we will have to deviate from that roadmap.'
