Downing Street said Mr Johnson intended to repeal all epidemic regulations restricting public movement in England as he presented his vision for the future on Monday.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has given no time frame for eliminating the need for isolation in Scotland. Details of a new CoVID-19 strategy by the Scottish Government are due to be unveiled on Tuesday.

Mr Johnson is expected to tell lawmakers on his return from Parliament in February that vaccine programs, testing and new treatments could be relied upon to keep the public safe.

It has been suggested by the ministers that the new variants of the virus will follow a pattern similar to that of Omecron, which is more mild than the initial variations of Covid 19.

NHS leaders warn against government’s plan to ‘live with COVID’

Speaking before outlining his plan, Mr Johnson said: “The code will not suddenly disappear, and we must learn to live with the virus and continue to protect ourselves without restricting our liberties.

“Over the last two years, we’ve made strong reservations about vaccine rollouts, tests, new treatments, and the best scientific understanding of what this virus can do.

“Thanks to our successful vaccination program and the sheer intensity of those who have come forward, we are now in a position to plan our lives to live with the quail this week.”

By the end of the week, self-isolation rules for positive testers and their close contacts will be lifted, officials said.

Local authorities will need to manage the epidemic with existing public health powers, as they will with other diseases.

Downing Street said pharmaceutical interventions would “remain our first line of defense”, with the vaccine program remaining “for everyone who has not yet come forward.”

Eighty-five per cent of the UK population has been vaccinated, and 38 million booster jobs have been created, with the number 10 saying it has concluded that “government interference in people’s lives can now finally end”.

However, No. 10 appeared to keep the door open to take infection samples from state funds, following reports that code studies could be withdrawn as part of the project.

Officials said Monday’s plan to “live with COVID”, as well as the removal of quarantine, would maintain “resilience against future variations with ongoing surveillance capabilities”.

This comes after senior statistician Sir David Spiegel Halter argued that some forms of corona virus study by the Office for National Statistics should remain intact.

The Cambridge University professor, who is the non-executive director of ONS and chairman of the advisory board for the Cowid Infection Survey, told BBC Radio 4’s Today program that the findings were important for monitoring people’s behavior.

“It’s been important because we’ve been together,” he said Saturday.

“It’s been going on since April 2020, and so, as I said, I have a bias here, but it’s not just me – I think a lot of people are saying how important it is, especially the statistical community. . “
