British Maru to remove self-quarantine rules

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to remove the self-isolation requirement for people infected with Covid-19 next week, his office said.

The UK will be the first major European country to allow people who know they are infected with Covid-19 to freely use shops and public transport to go to work. Many of his health advisors consider it dangerous.

“Covid does not disappear suddenly, he needs to learn to live with the virus and continue to protect himself without limiting his freedom,” Johnson said in a statement.

Currently, British people are legally required to self-quarantine for at least 5 days when directed by public health authorities, if they have Covid-19 symptoms or if the test is positive. It is recommended to quarantine without specific instructions.
