In view of the growing coronavirus cases in the UK, the country can once again enforce the lockdown. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is due to impose a nationwide lockdown from next week. Johnson’s scientific advisers have said that this is the only way to protect the country from virus bite.
The scientists of the Saij Committee presented a figure called ‘ No. 10 ‘ yesterday, which shows that the Kovid-19 is spreading at a faster pace than the prediction of the ‘ worst-case scenario ‘ made by them. In recent times, there has been an unprecedented increase in the pace of virus outbreaks in Britain.
Cabinet sources said the lockdown may be announced next week. It is not yet clear what form the new lockdown will take place or how long it will be put into force. However, another source has claimed that all shops are likely to remain closed except for shops selling essentials. In addition, nurseries, schools, and universities can be closed.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson will hold a press conference on Monday and the new sanctions could be implemented on Wednesday. The week before the government is going to be challenging, as it has to decide what kind of new sanctions will be before the lockdown.
Prime Minister Johnson and Finance Minister Rishi Sunak are fearing that if the lockdown is re-enforced, it can badly ruin the country’s economy. It is noteworthy that the UK economy has already been in a creaking due to corona.
Scientists backed by Health Secretary Matt Hancock and senior minister Michael Gove have said the virus could have killed 85,000 people this winter and by then it would be too late for the so-called ‘circuit brake’. They say that the lockdown should be implemented, as this is the only way through which the shortage of beds in hospitals can be prevented.
