LONDON (Sputnik) – English students will return to classrooms on March 8 in the first phase of the new plan to defuse restrictions against COVID-19, which Prime Minister Boris Johnson is preparing to announce throughout the day .
“Returning children to school has always been our priority, because it is crucial for their education, as well as for their physical and mental well-being, and we will also prioritize ways for people to reunite safely with their loved ones,” he said the conservative president.
Johnson promised to reactivate social and economic life “cautiously” and in accordance with the latest clinical and scientific data on the evolution of the pandemic.
“We will make decisions based on the latest data and we will act very cautiously in our approach so that we do not undo the progress we have made so far and the sacrifices each of you have made to stay safe,” he added.

The roadmap, which contemplates advancing four stages, will be ratified at the Cabinet meeting scheduled for this February 22.
The prime minister himself will reveal the details of the plan in the Parliament of Westminster before leading a press conference, televised, from his official residence in Downing Street.
