Watch again: Boris Johnson and Sir Chris Whitty set out plan to end Covid restrictions

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Watch again: Boris Johnson and Sir Chris Whitty set out plan to end Covid restrictions” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson set out his plan for scrapping the legal requirements for people with Covid to self-isolate, and he announced the end of free Covid tests from the 1st of April.

Ministers have given their “unanimous” backing to the prime minister’s “living with Covid” plan after Downing Street was earlier thrown into chaos after the meeting of Cabinet was delayed at the eleventh hour over a rift between senior members of the government.

Reports said the delay was caused by Sajid Javid, the health secretary and Rishi Sunak, the chancellor, locking horns over the testing costs.
