Britain is set to lead the way out of the pandemic with all coronavirus restrictions lifted in the coming weeks.
Remaining rules such as compulsory isolation for those with the virus will be ditched as Britons are urged to use personal responsibility in dealing with the coronavirus.
Ahead of his announcement, the Prime Minister said: “Today will mark a moment of pride after one of the most difficult periods in our country’s history as we begin to learn to live with covid.
“It would not be possible without the efforts of so many – the NHS who delivered the life-saving vaccine rollout at phenomenal speed, our world-leading scientists and experts, and the general public for their commitment to protecting themselves and their loved ones.
“The pandemic is not over but thanks to the incredible vaccine rollout we are now one step closer towards a return to normality and finally giving people back their freedoms while continuing to protect ourselves and others.”
