LONDON, May 11 (MENA) - UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will give more details on plans to gradually ease the coronavirus lockdown when the government publishes its official guidance on Monday, the Independent reported.

The prime minister’s announcement of his "first sketch of a road map" for restarting the economy and social lives in England was criticized as "vague" and "indecisive".

Johnson said the "stay home" slogan would be altered to urge Britons to "stay alert", while businesses, unions and police have called for clarity on the easing of restrictions.

After Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab wrong to say individuals can meet two people at same time, government admits people will only be allowed to meet one of their parents after the lockdown is eased, the government has said in an embarrassing U-turn.

Moments after Dominic Raab suggested it would be possible to meet two people in some circumstances – provided it was in a park, at two metres apart – the public has been told that advice was wrong.

The U-turn comes amid further confusion over the date when staff will be urged to go back to work if they can and whether some pubs could reopen from July.
