British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has set out a phased plan to end England's COVID-19 lockdown.
The plan was outlined on Monday.
Mr. Johnson said the first stage would prioritise schools returning on March 8 when only minimal socialising outdoors would be allowed.
The so-called roadmap would then pass through four stages, with five weeks in-between, and the final step, when most restrictions would be lifted, not starting until June 21 at the earliest.
The Prime Minister has been under pressure to allow more freedoms to millions of people stuck at home and offer hope to shuttered businesses.
