    U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to lay out phase 3 in his government’s plan to bring the country out of a coronavirus lockdown, giving the green light to “cautious hugging” and allowing pubs to serve pints inside after months of strict measures.

    The country is in the process of gradually lifting its latest lockdown over a period of months, in line with a four-step plan unveiled in February, after a rapid vaccine rollout helped drive down COVID-19 cases and death.

    From May 17, people will be allowed to meet up indoors for the first time in months and subject to certain rules. Other indoor entertainment like cinemas and sports venues can also resume activity.
