Quick coronavirus testing could enable nightclubs and theatres to reopen, Boris Johnson has suggested.

The PM said “rapid” lateral flow tests could be used by “those parts of the economy we couldn’t get open last year”.

“That, in combination with vaccination, will probably be the route forward,” he told a Downing Street press conference.

But he stressed it was “still early days” with “lots of discussions still to be had”.

A government source said: “There is a long way to go before we can get people back at big events safely.”

Nightclubs have been unable to operate since the first Covid lockdown in March 2020, while many theatres have struggled to make social distancing work.

It comes as Mr Johnson said people must be “optimistic but patient” about an end to coronavirus restrictions in England.

He said steps taken to ease lockdown should be “cautious but irreversible” ahead of next week’s release of a roadmap for lifting curbs.
