Boris Johnson admits that the locking rules are now complex and complex “, adding that” we must do something “.
Boris Johnson has urged people to limit contact with the public as much as possible, as he has confirmed that the ban on gatherings of more than six people in England will take effect on Monday.
Speaking at the Downing Street news conference, the prime minister announced new ways to celebrate Christmas – but set hopes for a major test empire to be tested in England next month.
Asked by political editor Beth Rigby that apart from a state-of-the-art survey, more people should accept having small gatherings for Christmas, the premier said it was “too early to say”.
However, he said he was “hopeful” that the new rules would reduce the current number.
Mr Johnson acknowledged that the laws of coronavirus have become “complex and confusing”.
He said the latest move, the largest extinction since the unveiling of COVID-19 earlier this summer, was aimed at “simplifying and enforcing the rules” and “making it easier for everyone to understand”.
England’s chief medical officer, Professor Chris Whitty, said restrictions on meetings would be “temporarily”.
Whitehall sources told that it could be three months or more before the rate is reduced.
Mr Johnson said it “breaks my heart” that I have to bring limits.
The ban will apply to indoor and outdoor circles, including people’s homes, parks, restaurants and restaurants.
Circles will still be allowed when the home or support bubble is larger than six, or where the meeting is for work or educational purposes.
Weddings, funerals and organized party games will also be excluded.
The premier said “COVID” protected areas such as places of worship, gymnasiums, restaurants and lodges would still be able to accommodate more than six people in total.
But between these areas, there should be no individual groups larger than six and groups cannot interact with the community or form larger groups.
“The Sixth Amendment” will be “kept up to date”, Mr Johnson said, and the government “will only keep it where it is needed”.
He said new laws were being enacted to “prevent further national legislation”.
Looking to the future, Mr. Johnson spoke of his desire for more mass testing to allow him to return to normal life.
Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer said: “We support the government’s efforts and urge the public to adhere to these new rules.”
“I think the government is now acknowledging that their poor communication was a big part of the problem and that will be rectified,” he added.
“But they also have to see that the inspection regime is everywhere right now.”
In Scotland, up to eight people from three families are allowed to meet indoors, while groups of 15 people – from up to five households – are allowed to meet outside.
In Wales, up to 30 people can meet outside – but people have been told not to meet indoors with anyone who is not a member of their family (or extended) “unless they have a good reason”.
Up to four homes, with unlimited people, able to come together to build an “extended house” in Wales.
In Northern Ireland, six people from two different families can meet in homes and groups of up to 15 people outside.
The Prime Minister also stated:
- Public places and restaurants, including restaurants and restaurants, will now be required by law to request customer inspection and tracking and records for 21 days.
- Industries will be registered to help ensure that social exclusion is maintained in urban and suburban areas
- The Border Force will increase the enforcement of immigration laws in the country
- Pilots of sporting and recreational pilots will be reviewed
- The government is “working hard” to increase its testing capacity to 500,000 a day
- A new guideline will be given at universities on how to remain open to students in a “COVID safe” way.
In his promotional “monthly” program on testing, he said: “We want to start using screening to identify non-negative people – who do not have a coronavirus and who are not infected – so we can allow them to behave normally knowing they will not infect anyone else with the virus.”
Ahead of the Prime Minister’s speech, Professor Whitty, said the number of cases had “increased dramatically” in the 20 to 30 to 30 to 39 years.
It comes after the number of daily coronavirus cases in the UK rose to nearly 3,000 – figures not seen since May.
A total of 2,659 confirmed lab cases were reported in the UK on Wednesday, followed by 2,460 on Tuesday, 2,948 on Monday and 2,988 on Sunday.
Presenting information from other European countries, Professor Whitty said it was important to take action “immediately and consistently” when cases arise.
He warned that the period between now and spring would be “difficult”, adding: “I think by the current limits, people should see this as the next period which may not last many months, but it is very unlikely to end in just two or three weeks.
“So I think there is a time and then we will all be as a nation we need to re-examine where things are and know what the right things should be done.”
