The United Kingdom has drawn up a three-stage plan to ease coronavirus measures, reports the British newspaper The Times.
The government should review the lockdown that was imposed in late March on May 7, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made it clear that he is concerned about a possible second deadly spike in infections.
The first phase involves the reopening of small shops and the second phase involves large shopping centres. It will also encourage more people to return to work, the newspaper writes.
Pubs, restaurants, hotels and leisure centres will only be opened in the last phase.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson will present his plans to relax the measures on Thursday. The UK went into lockdown on March 23, later than other major European countries.
