Background 
Bloomberg British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said coronavirus lockdown rules are set to be scrapped in seven weeks' time, as he hailed the U.K.'s successful vaccine rollout ahead of key elections this week.

On the campaign trail, Johnson said the pandemic data was likely to allow people in England to stay overnight with friends or relations, with indoor hospitality able to reopen from May 17.

Remaining social distancing rules are also likely to be canceled from June 21, he added, although he warned that international travel will need to be carefully monitored after May 17 to avoid reimporting the virus again.
