In Britain, the COVID – 19 cases are at a record levels and are increasing a lot which is fuelled by a new variant which is even more transmissible. Seeing all the results and the increase in cases had forced the government to cancel the reopening of the schools that was planned in and around the London.
Toughest levels of restrictions are imported on a lot of part of the England that were set out in a four-tier system of the regional regulations that was designed to stop the spread of the virus and also to protect the national healthcare system.
When Johnson was asked in an interview about the concerns that the system would not be enough to bring the virus back to a low level and to bring it under control, then he said that alas, the restrictions imposed might be about to get even more tougher.
He also said that there are obviously a whole range for the tougher measures that they would have considered and that he is not going to speculate right now about what all they would be.
