England will continue with its Plan B Covid measures for the time being, the prime minister confirms, saying it would be "folly" to think the pandemic was over, APA reports citing BBC.

Boris Johnson says the measures - which include compulsory mask-wearing in some settings, working from home where possible, and Covid passes for some venues - will stay for now.

The PM says the "way forward for the country as a whole is to continue on the path that we are on, but of course we'll keep all the data under review".

"It will be absolute folly to say that this thing is all over... we've got to stick with Plan B," he says.
