He is expected to say that the pubs, the hotels, the restaurants and the hairdressers will be able to come back next month, but the remote can only be cut with additional protection such as masks, screens, and having to sit back-to-back or side-to-side.
The PM has recently announced a policy of ” support bubble “, where people living alone can form a bubble with a different household.
This means that they are allowed to come within 2m of each other, hug, go inside each other’s homes and stay for the night.
Singles might include a grand-parent living alone, or a single parent with children under the age of 18 years.
But this meant that the grandparents of couples have not been able to bubble and to see their grandchildren.
Now, the PM might be about to expand these bubbles to include all households with two persons, the Daily Telegraph has reported, meaning millions more could go and kiss their loved ones.
Another option is to allow people of many households to make bubbles, but with an overall cap on numbers.
This could mean two grandparents are allowed to see the grandchildren, and the parents don’t have the agonizing choice of those who see.
Regardless of which option they take, the Government scientific advisers warned in internal meetings that it may take the rate R above one.
Scientists have said that extending this policy even for just a household of two would be to see the virus begins to spread further.
The R the rate should be 0.8 or below, before thinking of the introduction of a bubbling strategy, it is warned.
A high government source told the newspaper: “there will be an expansion of the social-bubbles, but the details are still being finalized. ”
Another source said: “The issue with bubbles has always been to find out how you help families meet to the extent possible without too much risk.
“The scientists main concern has always been infections from spreading from one household to another, this is why it is one of the most difficult decisions we have to take. “
