He will announce that the emergency lockdown has been lifted and that he plans to rescind his plan to create vaccine passports as part of his Covid Winter Plan. Johnson will instead give booster jabs to try and prevent another lockdown in the UK.
Next week, the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisation will approve the third inoculation set.
If approval is granted, more vulnerable Britons could receive booster vaccines in just two weeks.
After the Prime Minister was reported to be desperate to prevent any further lockdowns, the government decided to limit the power of the executive to close down the UK’s economic system.
His Conservative counterparts were critical of any extension of the emergency powers.
Mark Harper, a member of the Covid Research Group, told the Financial Times earlier this month that the Coronavirus Act was “the most severe detention power in British modern legal history”.
It appears that the Prime Minister has now followed suit.
Johnson stated that “These extraordinary times necessitated necessary, but intrusive” measures.
“But, I am determined to get rid any powers that we don’t need.”
The Government has released coronavirus data that shows 8,098 COVID-19-positive patients were admitted to hospitals despite the expected move.
These are more than a thousand and include ventilation beds.
On Tuesday, Mr Johnson will reveal further details on the Covid Winter Plan during a Downing Street press conference.
