ENGLAND STICKS TO PLAN-B COVID-19 MEASURES
Written by Samson Ojeniran on January 6, 2022
British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, says England will continue with its Plan B Covid measures, for the time being, saying it would be “folly” to think the pandemic was over.
Boris Johnson says the measures – which include compulsory mask-wearing in some settings, working from home where possible, and Covid passes for some venues – will stay for now.
The PM says the “way forward for the country as a whole is to continue on the path that they are on, but of course, the country will keep all the data under review”.
On wearing face masks in classrooms in England, Boris Johnson says he doesn’t like the idea of masks in classrooms but there is evidence they can cut transmission rates.
