Boris Johnson announcement LIVE – Fears UK covid lockdown could RETURN as July 19 easing will be ‘reviewed’ in September

BORIS Johnson has revealed his plan to go ahead with so-called Freedom Day on July 19 at a Downing Street briefing tonight.

The PM said he will push ahead with plans to axe the majority of Covid restrictions next Monday when he addresses the nation at around 5pm.

But there are concerns that his claims of an “irreversible” easing might not come to fruition when new Health Secretary Sajid Javid revealed the roadmap would be ‘reviewed’ on September 23rd.

Additionally Javid revealed Government guidance will absolutely be for masks to worn on public transport and in crowded spaces, although the threat of fines for not doing so will be dropped until at least September 23.
