What is Boris Johnson expected to announce?

In his speech tonight Boris Johnson is expected to warn the public Super Saturday.

The PM is expected to advise the public on following the lockdown rules that will be in place tomorrow.

If the public follows the rules in place it will stop the possibility of a second coronavirus outbreak.

What did Boris Johnson say in his last speech on coronavirus lockdown?

On June 23, Boris Johnson made a statement in the House of Commons, announcing the latest measures that will come into force on July 4.

In his opening address, the PM said that they still believe there is no risk of a second wave.

The first item to be revealed was that the two-metre social distancing rule will be changed from July 4.

Mr Johnson said "where it is possible, keep two metres apart", but he added that it will be reduced to one metre plus where not possible.

This means that one metre must be obliged, while other measures like wearing face masks should be followed.

Two households can meet indoors or outside – but no more than two households can meet except outdoors like in parks.

Meanwhile, Mr Johnson added that these do not have to be the same two households, for example children can meet one set of grandparents one week, and the others the following week.

Much to the cheers of the Commons, the PM revealed pubs and restaurants will be able to open from July 4.
