Mr Johnson said that “in the not-too-distant future” businesses would be able to reopen and people would once again be able to hold family and friends.

He spoke about how the “kindness and perseverance of the British spirit” had shown “how much we can achieve when we all pull together” during the coronavirus pandemic.

And with the UK vaccination programme having “roared into life in every corner of this country”, he said restrictions that have been in place across the UK for much of the last year could soon be removed.

In the not-too-distant future, we will be able to reopen businesses, see friends in each other’s houses and hold our loved ones again

Mr Johnson said: “In the coming months we will beat Covid – we will vaccinate everyone in our country and we will be able to remove restrictions.

“In the not-too-distant future, we will be able to reopen businesses, see friends in each other’s houses and hold our loved ones again.”

Mr Johnson, whose UK Government determines the restrictions for England only, was addressing the Scottish Conservative conference.

He told the virtual gathering that more than 1.8 million people in Scotland and 22.5 million people across the whole of the UK have now had at least their first dose of the vaccine.

The Prime Minister pledged: “We are resolved to keep that pace and accelerate it wherever possible, so that every single adult across the entire UK will have received their first injection by the end of July.”

His speech comes almost a year since the first lockdown, aimed at curbing the spread of the virus, was announced in March 2020.
