At a recent press briefing, Johnson highlighted the work being done in the UK towards the mission of curbing the virus. He explained on how; he laid to gradually start reopening with “COVID-19 Secure" measures of social distancing and for the public to use “good solid British common sense" as the economy is unlocked.

“A mass vaccine or treatment may be more than a year away. Indeed, in a worst-case scenario, we may never find a vaccine. So our plan must countenance a situation where we are in this, together, for the long haul, even while doing all we can avoid that outcome," Johnson said.  

The UK Prime Minister also admitted that a vaccine or drug-based treatment is the only feasible long-term solution that could help advance the manufacture of a COVID-19 vaccine when it is ready.
