The country’s prime minister, Boris Johnson, made the announcement at a briefing on Downing Street on Monday (April 5th).

Boris Johnson also said that the UK wants to normalize international communication from May 18 if possible.
Meanwhile, the level of new corona infections is increasing in different countries of the world. In view of this, Britain has banned travel to several countries including Bangladesh.
The country is also going to issue Corona Certificates for its citizens. This will let you know if a person has been vaccinated or if the corona test has a negative result or if they have developed immunity naturally.
