Boris Johnson said at the last press conference on Downing Street that the vaccination program was “lights ahead”.
As he put the roadmap outside the lockdown, Mr Johnson said it was time for the bumps to replace the restraints on freedom to protect against Covid-19.
“We cannot indefinitely hold on to restrictions that have separated families and loved ones for too long, threatened the livelihoods of millions, and kept students out of school,” he said.
“Thanks to the vaccinations, we have light before us that will lead us to a spring and a summer that I think will be seasons of hope, when we will all look and feel incomparably better.”
The Prime Minister also pledged that the government “will do everything it can to protect jobs and livelihoods” while restrictions remain in place.
Johnson said earlier today that the “data, not data” -based levels of lockdown relaxation would be in place.
