February 10, 2022 – UK lifts all restrictions in two weeks time.
The Prime Minister intends to ditch all remaining Covid laws within a fortnight as unions criticised the move as going ‘too far, too soon’ and Government advisers warned of the ‘dangers’.
The Prime Minister yesterday dramatically declared the final domestic restrictions – including compulsory self-isolation for the infected – will be axed before the end of February, provided the ‘encouraging’ trends in the data continue.
Covid infections are falling consistently and deaths are now in freefall, while the milder nature of Omicron, coupled with sky-high levels of immunity, mean the NHS never came under the levels of pressure that No10’s experts feared.
Ministers have repeatedly spoken of their plans to live with Covid like flu, paving the way for England to lead the rest of the world out of the pandemic phase. But the embattled PM’s statement yesterday – which was greeted with roars by Tory MPs in the Commons – has drawn criticism.
Current restrictions have left tens of thousands of Britons off work every day, with 80 per cent of the 70,000 people testing positive daily sticking to the rules that orders them to isolate for at least five days.
The rules caused one in 11 teachers to be off school due to the virus last week.
