The Prime Minister is planning to get England moving, by potentially reopening shops and some schools from 1 June.

On Wednesday Boris Johnson set a target to deliver a coronavirus tracing system the will enable the lockdown to be lifted.

To date there have been 25,000 trackers recruited who will identify the contacts of people who are infected with the virus which will prevent future outbreaks.

Scientific advisors are urging the government that the system must be up and running before the lockdown can be fully lifted.

The government could also be set to relax the rules on limiting social contact, as English residents are growing restless given the glorious sunshine is here.

A Whitehall source said, “Any decision on the lockdown is conditional on advice that we can move forward without risking a second spike.

“We are not there yet.

“Hopefully, the test-and-trace system will give people confidence in the measures we are taking.”
