Britain’s battle with coronavirus could be over as early as the spring, Boris Johnson has claimed - The Independent reports.
 
According to the Independent, Johnson said that the Army would be involved within the next few weeks in the roll-out of millions of rapid-turnaround tests, which would help reduce the crucial reproduction rate of the disease - known as R - below one by the time the new restrictions expire on 2 December.
 
As Independent reports, the prime minister said he believed that advances in vaccines and treatment should mean there would be no need for a third national shutdown.
