The British government has said it looks forward to easing some COVID-19 lockdown restrictions in the UK by March.

NAN reports that since Jan. 5, the region, which also has the highest COVID-19 death toll in Europe, has been under national shutdown, with schools closed for most pupils, non-essential industries shut down and people ordered to operate from home where possible.

Speaking during a Sky News television interview on Sunday, Foreign Minister Dominic Raab said the government plans to ease the domestic lockout as fast as possible.

“By early spring, hopefully, by March, we’ll be in a position to make those decisions.”

“I think it’s right to say we won’t do it all in one big bang.”

“As we phase out the national lockdown, I think we’ll end up phasing through a (regional) tiered approach,” he said.

By mid-February, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson had set a goal of vaccinating elderly people, clinically vulnerable workers and front-line workers.

According to him, if all goes smoothly, England will consider relaxing lockout restrictions from that point.
