BORIS Johnson will lay out plans to scrap ALL remaining Covid laws in just days, he revealed today.

The PM told MPs he hopes to ditch the requirement for people to self-isolate at the end of the month.

At the start of PMQs he said he will unveil his plan to “live with Covid” on Monday February 21.

He said: “Provided the current encouraging trends in the data continue, it is my expectation that we will be able to end the last domestic restrictions, including the legal requirement to self isolate if you test positive.”

Currently anyone who catches coronavirus is required by law to stay at home for six days.

After overcoming Omicron by turbocharging the booster rollout, Britain shook off Plan B restrictions last month.

Cases are still falling – and yesterday the UK recorded a 40 per cent weekly drop in infections.

Another 66,183 infections have been logged in the past 24 hours, compared to 112,458 last Tuesday.

The PM’s promise to bring forward the end of all Covid laws was praised this afternoon.

Ex-Cabinet Minister Lord Frost said: “The PM’s plan to end all Covid restrictions a month early is the right thing to do and is extremely welcome.

“I hope the government will also make clear we will not go down the road of coercive lockdowns ever again.”
