Matt Hancock said England was “clearly on the right track” to further ease the blocking of corona viruses with the hope that pubs, restaurants and hairdressers could reopen on July 4th.
On Sunday, the UK health minister promised to set the next steps this week along with an amendment to the two-meter social distance policy.
With the two-meter rule, which severely limits the hospitality sector, it is becoming increasingly likely that it will be reduced as long as other slowdowns – such as B. Facegear – can be used to prevent a second wave of Covid-19 infections.
Ministers believe that after three months of lock-up, the number of coronavirus cases is so small that a greater reopening can take place to revive the troubled economy.
Mr. Hancock said to Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday, “We are clearly on the right track for this plan because (due to) the number of cases that come back, the plan is related to hospitality and some of the other things like that many people have closed wants to see open. “
He admitted that “much of the country needs a haircut” and said that he “will not rule out” hairdressers and hairdressers who can also reopen on July 4th.
Later on the Andrew Marr Show, he said the government would announce the results of a review of the two-meter rule and the next move for closure this week.
“I think we are on the verge of taking another step, and this week we will announce more details of the measures we can take to resolve some of the national blocking measures in early July, including July 4th,” said he continued the BBC program.
“We’ll be giving out these details this week.”
He cited plexiglass screens, masks, and altered seating arrangements as examples of measures to reduce the risk of coronavirus spread if the two-meter rule is changed.
And he had the idea that punters in pubs and bars may have to sign a guest book with their names and contact details so that they can be quickly found if they come into contact with an infection.
The hotels are also awaiting approval to re-open and revive the UK vacation opportunity and boost the economy.
To aid the recovery, Mr. Hancock did not rule out suggestions that Rishi Sunak could lower VAT to encourage spending, and Ridge said, “It is very important for the Chancellor.”
The health minister also said reducing the distance rule would “undoubtedly help schools” and pointed to Northern Ireland where it will be reduced to one meter.
Strong evidence that it will also be reduced earlier in England came from Mr Sunak, who said that the review ordered by Boris Johnson would “make a huge difference to businesses”.
The Prime Minister has been pressured by his own MPs and the hospitality industry to reduce it.
