Freedom D(el)ay: Lockdown extended by at least four weeks

Boris Johnson will appeal to the nation to be patient today as he announces that the June 21 easing of lockdown restrictions will be delayed by up to four weeks. The prime minister will use a press conference in Downing Street this evening to set out the delay as the government attempts to hit its target of offering all adults at least one dose of a vaccination by the end of next month. A government source said that Johnson views it as the ‘final stretch’ (not for the first time!) as he seeks to ensure that as many people as possible are vaccinated before lockdown rules are eased – Times
