Heads up: UK PM Johnson to make statement on virus restrictions later today

Author: Justin Low | Category: News

The statement is expected at 1700 GMT

The initial plan was to reopen everything "no earlier than 21 June" i.e. next week but that timeline may be pushed back now. Still, it is a bit of a minor hiccup after the progress made by the UK economy in the past two months.
