Boris Johnson “optimistic” he can set out plan to ease lockdown in England – BBC News

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he is optimistic he will be able to set out plans for a cautious easing of restrictions in England.

Mr Johnson also said that people will have to learn to live with coronavirus, echoing a suggestion by his Health Secretary Matt Hancock that the virus could be managed like ‘flu by the end of the year.

Some scientists have warned against easing restrictions too quickly, even if the vaccination programme remains on target.
