UK's Johnson says 'escape route in sight' from virus
Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday expressed optimism for an end to coronavirus restrictions as he announced the lifting of measures in England from early next month.
"Christmas cannot be normal and there's a long road to spring. But we have turned a corner and the escape route is in sight," he told parliament.
"We must hold out against the virus until testing and vaccines come to our rescue and reduce the need for restrictions," he added.
