What are you allowed to do in PMs conditional lockdown easing process in the U.K. ?
London — According to the Department of Health further 269 people diagnosed with COVID-19 have died in the UK on Saturday , taking the overall total to 31,855.
It is the lowest daily figure since 29 March, when there were 214 fatalities in a 24-hour period.
The new figure released by the Department of Health is for coronavirus-related fatalities in all settings, including hospitals, care homes and the community, as of 5pm on Saturday.
Numbers at the weekend can sometimes be lower than during the week as some administration staff who collate the figures may not be working, sky news writes.
The prime minister set out a “conditional plan” for easing the coronavirus lockdown in England, which sets out three phases.
- Work: People who can’t work from home should now travel to their workplace – but avoid public transport if possible. Those who can still work from home should continue.
- Exercise: “Unlimited amounts” are permitted – not just once a day.
- Possible to meet a friend: Sitting in the park, including sunbathing, is permitted. A government minister said those activities could be done with one person from another household if the two-metre rule is adhered to.
- Driving to places such as parks or beaches is also allowed for outdoor activity – but the travel can only be within England and with members of the same household.
- Playing outdoor sport is permitted with members of the same household. Tennis courts and golf clubs can reopen, so long as social distancing measures are enforced. Other permitted activities include water sports and angling.
- Fines for breaking lockdown rules increase from £60 to £100. Repeat offenders will see the fine double for each subsequent breach to a maximum of £3,200
- Schools: Some classes could resume, starting with with primary reception pupils, Year 1 and Year 6. The prime minister said the earliest return would be 1 June – but teaching unions have expressed serious doubts.
- Secondary pupils with exams next year will hopefully get some time with teachers before the summer, the PM said.
- Shops: A “phased reopening” could begin. Mr Johnson said 1 June would be the earliest possible date and promised more detail to come.
A total of 31,855 have now died of COVID-19 across the UK.
