UK Enters New Lockdown

UK lockdown

UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has announced that England and Scotland will be entering a new lockdown, as COVID-19 cases spike.

With most schools closed in England, Scotland and Wales, the former two will commence another lockdown, and people must now stay at home except for with a handful of permitted reasons.

Johnson has said that the new phase of lockdowns will be “the hardest yet”, but added that he believed the country was entering “the last phase of the struggle”, according to BBC.

The UK will now be entering a lockdown despite it highly effective vaccine rollout, which has been facilitated by the NHS

“The more we vaccinate the easier it will be to lift these restrictions,” Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove told BBC Breakfast, saying a million people had been vaccinated so far “up until the weekend” and they hope the number will reach more than 13 million in February.

However, Johnson has decided to take this extreme measure, due to the fact that there’s “more pressure from COVID than at any time since the start of the pandemic”.

The UK has now confirmed 2,713,563 cases of COVID-19, with more than 50,000 new cases reported yesterday, and 75,431 people have lost their lives.
