British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has held the final daily coronavirus briefing as social distancing rules are eased in England.
Johnson announced new measures that will allow a swathe of businesses to reopen from July 4th.
"Critically, we can make a change to the guidance on two metres, which kept us safe while transmission of the virus was high, which can now be modified. Having considered all the evidence, while staying at two metres is preferable, we can now move to one metre-plus where it is not possible for us to stay two metres apart."
As they observe the revised measures, people are still required to take other safety measures such as wearing a mask in enclosed spaces.
Hotels, places of worship, hair salons and pubs are among the places that can reopen from July fourth provided they are COVID-secure.

However, looking ahead to 2021, the WTO predicts that adverse factors such as a second wave of infections, weaker-than-expected economic growth, and trade restrictions could see trade expansion fall short of earlier projections.
