Boris Johnson has said he hopes to set out an exit strategy for the UK to exit the coronavirus pandemic in the ‘next few weeks’.

During PMQ’s the Prime Minister said perpetual lockdown “is no answer”.

Sir Keir Starmer said: “I am sure the Prime Minister regrets the fact that 100,000 people have lost their lives. The question is why?

“Why has the United Kingdom the highest number of deaths in Europe, why has the United Kingdom a death rate that is higher than almost anywhere in the world?”

The Prime Minister replied: “When you have a new virus and indeed when you have a new variant of that virus of the kind that we have in this country, when you have the dilemmas as hard and as heavy as this Government has had to face over the last year, I must tell (Sir Keir) there are no easy answers – perpetual lockdown is no answer.”

Mr Johnson told MPs that “6.9 million people in our country have had the vaccine”.

He added: “I hope very much to be, in the next few weeks, to be setting out in much more detail how this country can exit now from the pandemic.”
