  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Lockdown ending: How the dates for a return to normality have shifted” – below is their description.

    Boris Johnson outlined his lockdown roadmap on February 22, announcing a four-step plan that could see lockdown entirely lifted on June 21. He described it as a “one-way road to freedom”. 

    But he has now warned there are no guarantees that all Covid-19 restrictions will lift in England on June 21, despite being “optimistic” that it could happen.

    The dates for a return to normality have shifted numerous times since the first lockdown in March 2020, as you can see in the video. Will they shift again this time?
