British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to lay out his roadmap for the easing of lockdown in England.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that bars, restaurants, gyms, schools, hair salons and all non-essential shops were closed in England on January 5 as part of the country's third lockdown to curb the spread of COVID infections.
Johnson will share his finalised plan with ministers, before unveiling it to Parliament and to the public at a news conference on Monday.
Rules are expected to be lifted in stages, with the first phase including the reopening of schools from March 8. Nursing home residents will likely be able to have one visitor from the same date.
The reopening of non-essential shopping and hospitality venues is unlikely before April. The government will assess the impact of each stage on the infection rate before making further changes.
