Plan B measures to be dropped across England, Johnson says

Plan B measures aimed at tackling the spread of Covid-19 are to be dropped across England, the Prime Minister has announced. People will no longer be told to work from home and, from Thursday next week when Plan B measures lapse, mandatory Covid certification will end, Mr Johnson said. The announcement comes at a time when Mr Johnson is battling to save his premiership after the 'partygate' scandal. Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer responded to Mr Johnson's announcement, claiming the Prime Minister is “too distracted to do the job”.
