LONDON (Reuters) – The UK could allow primary schools in England and Wales to reopen starting June 1, under plans being discussed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, The Telegraph newspaper reported.

Johnson would present the government’s “road map” to lifting the confinement of the coronavirus in a speech he will deliver to the country next Sunday, the newspaper said.

The Sunday Times newspaper said the government would only make minor adjustments to the confinement this week, encouraging the reopening of construction sites, relaxing the rules for outdoor activities and urging people to cover their faces on public transport.

Johnson will present next week a possible way to lift confinements and revive the world’s fifth economy without causing a second wave of coronavirus cases.
