“Bubbles” of people we can meet safely may form part of the plans to move the UK out of the coronavirus lockdown.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has set out a road map for how Britain could start easing restrictions and this 50-page document includes the possibility of widening our “social bubbles”.
What are social bubbles?
A bubble is defined as a group of people with whom you have close physical contact.
Coronavirus spreads when people mix – be it at work, in shops, pubs and clubs, or on buses and trains.
In lockdown, to try to control the virus, people have been asked actively to avoid anyone who is not in their household and stay at home.
Limiting our interactions with others is our best defence
