POLL: Do you agree with the lockdown roadmap set out by Boris Johnson on Monday evening?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has set out his roadmap to lifting lockdown restrictions in England.

It means from next month all schools can return, people can socialise in parks and public spaces with another person, and some sports can also make a comeback.

It comes after nearly seven weeks of staying, working and educating at home following what was a dangerous surge in coronavirus cases.

Despite the imminent easing of measures, the Prime Minister told Parliament the 'stay at home message' would remain in place.

"The threat remains substantial, with hospital numbers only now starting to reduce to numbers back in April," said Mr Johnson.

"The data suggests both vaccines are resistant against the dominant strains of coronavirus. But no vaccine will ever be 100% effective and like any virus, covid-19 will mutate.

"Lifting lockdown will result in more cases, hospitalisations, and deaths. This would happen whenever lockdown is lifted, now or in six or nine months.

"There is therefore no credible route to a zero-covid world.

"It's crucial this roadmap should be cautious, but irreversible."
