Nearly all COVID-related restrictions will be dropped in the United Kingdom next week, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Wednesday, citing the Omicron wave passing its peak and praising his country’s high vaccination and booster rates.
Speaking before the House of Commons, Johnson said, “Many nations across Europe have endured further winter lockdowns but this government took a different path,” adding that his government made the “toughest decisions right.”
In his speech, Johnson reviewed Britain’s so-called Plan B measures that were imposed after the new Omicron variant was detected last November in South Africa. Citing the latest data on COVID infection and hospitalization rates dropping nationwide, and the “doubled speed” of booster programs, the prime minister declared the country can “return to ‘Plan A’ in England and allow ‘Plan B’ regulations to expire.”
