Will all lockdown measures be eased on June 21?
Although Step 4 is scheduled for June 21 at the earliest, ultimately any easing of lockdown measures will be dependent on the data.
And with concerns over mounting Covid cases in some areas due to the Delta variant first identified in India, some reports have suggested the Prime Minister will delay easing the last set of lockdown measures.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock told MPs on Wednesday that the Delta variant is becoming the primary cause of COVID-19 cases in the UK, with 91 percent of cases thought to be attributed to the new strain.
The UK reported 7,393 cases of COVID-19 on Thursday and 44,008 cases over the last seven days – a week-on-week rise of 63.2 percent.
