Earlier on Tuesday, British Health Secretary had said that there`s nothing in data at this point that suggests that Britain needs to move away from Plan B, which includes guidance to work from home and mandatory face masks in most public indoor venues.

“The British government is not planning to cut the isolation period from seven days to five days, as the United States has done,” he said.

More than 90 per cent of people aged 12 and over in Britain have had their first dose of vaccine and around 82 per cent have received both doses, according to the latest figures.
