Johnson: England to ease virus restrictions

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson, still struggling with the recent Downing Street party scandal, stated on Wednesday he will lift almost all remaining coronavirus restrictions in England. Johnson said the government will, in the coming days, drop its guidance on wearing masks in transportation and school classrooms, encourage in-office work and end the requirement for showing vaccine certificates.

"We are the first to emerge from the Omicron wave," Johnson stated in the justification of dropping of restrictions, noting that other European countries need to reimpose measures and initiate new lockdowns.
