As today’s data is released, Boris Johnson hinted that the final unlock of the UK on June 21 will be postponed.

The Prime Minister admitted that he was concerned about the spread of the highly infectious delta variant first discovered in India and vowed to be “cautious” about relaxing restrictions.

He told reporters at the G7 summit held in Cabis Bay: “Now we don’t know to what extent this will cause additional mortality, but obviously this is a serious and serious problem.”

He added that the government wants to “ensure that the road map is irreversible-but unless you are prepared to be cautious, you cannot have an irreversible road map.

“Some data is still open for discussion, but we will announce all the details you might want on Monday.”

The Sun revealed last night how “Freedom Day” will be postponed to July 19 due to concerns about the spread of Delta variants.

This means that only 6 people can still eat together indoors, and up to 30 people can party outdoors.

The number of people allowed to enter arenas, cinemas, sporting events and theaters will also remain unchanged.

The regulations on masks are expected to remain the same, which means that masks are still required to be worn on public transportation and internal public places.

Nightclubs that are currently closed must also be completely closed-even though they were originally scheduled to reopen on June 21.

Returning to the workplace will be delayed, and workers are expected to work from home for a month.
