England's Plan B restrictions to be "scrapped" Published Date: 16/01/2022

It has been widely reported that the Prime Minister is set to change the work from home guidance and Covid passports this month as Covid cases have plunged by a third compared to this time last week, official figures show. 

Dr Susan Hopkins, the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) chief medical adviser, said cases now appear to be ‘plateauing’ in many parts of the UK.

Despite experts warning against loosening measures too soon, Boris Johnson is reportedly planning to scrap Covid Plan B restrictions in England as part of a plan to save himself amid the partygate scandal.

Covid passports and work from home guidance could be lifted as soon as January 26, though rules on face masks may remain, according to The Telegraph.

Government scientists have reportedly provided evidence that offers support for the change, with modelling from SAGE showing that the restrictions make little difference to hospital admissions.
