PM Boris Johnson has told the public there is ‘no evidence’ to suggest England will be returning into a state of lockdown in the festive period.

The Prime Minister has reassured people across England that Christmas 2021 will be lockdown free.

PM Boris Johnson said that despite the growing number of cases of Covid-19, “any kind of lockdown” is “not on the cards”.

As he urged the over 50s to book in to receive their booster jabs, the leader explained that there was “no evidence” that we should spend Christmas as we did in 2020.

This update comes from the PM during his trip to Rome for the G20 Summit.

When asked by journalists if he can guarantee us a good Christmas, he replied: “I see no evidence whatever to think that any kind of lockdown is on the cards.

He added: “We’re watching the numbers every day. Yes, it’s true that cases are high. But they do not currently constitute any reason to go to Plan B.

“I think it’s agreed among absolutely everybody, apart from possibly the Labour Party, so we’re sticking with the plan. And I think rather than thinking new restrictions the best thing everybody can do is get that booster jab as soon as you’re offered it.”

At the moment, Covid-29 cases across England are on the rise.

According to the Office for National Statistic, they have estimated that there is the same proportion of people in England with the virus as there was during the peak of the pandemic.

However, due to the vaccine rollout, hospitalisations and deaths remain low.

In total, 45.7 million people have been vaccinated in the UK, with certain age groups now being asked to return to receive a booster jab.

The Government have a Plan B option to fall back on if figures change in the upcoming weeks and months, a plan which could see face masks return to compulsory and people returning to the offices.
