In view of the increase in Covid-19 cases in Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is considering a lockdown of the country for a month. According to reports citing government sources, it could be announced on Monday. Johnson held a meeting with cabinet colleagues on Friday to discuss the issue of imposing sanctions due to the rise in the number of Kovid-19 cases and the growing number of hospital patients.
According to information from “The Times” newspaper, everything except essential stores and educational institutions may be closed under the new restrictions.
According to the news, any restrictions could remain in place until Christmas in December. It is believed that no final decision has been taken in this regard and that there is an opportunity to take action at the regional level as part of the three-phase lockdown currently being implemented at the local level.
British Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Minister of Health Matt Hancock, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gov were present at the meeting.
The news has yet to be answered at the Prime Minister’s official residence in Office 10 Downing Street, that Johnson may announce the new restrictions by holding a press conference on Monday.
