The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, plans to decree a new national lockdown next week in the face of the alarming growth of positive cases of COVID-19 in the country in recent days, according to The Times newspaper.

Johnson met this Friday with his crisis cabinet, among whom are the Minister of Health, Matt Hancock, the Minister of Economy, Rishi Sunak, and the Cabinet, Michael Gove, to analyze the latest figures and study a tightening of restrictions.

Widespread closure

According to The Times, the head of government will give a press conference on Monday to announce the new measures that in principle will involve a widespread closure of the activity, except for shops of essential products and educational centers.

This confinement would begin on Monday and would last until December 1. However, the sources consulted by the newspaper indicate that a final decision on the scope of the new restrictions has not yet been made.

Complicated scenario

The British Government, according to this information, has decided to change its approach in view of the fact that the figures even exceed worst-case scenario, as it became known today from a warning issued two weeks ago to the Executive by the scientific committee that advises him against the virus.

Therefore, Johnson is expected to renounce the regional containment that it recently implemented, by which the territories were classified with a traffic light system that determined the restrictions.

Increase in infections

The prime minister’s intention was to stick to the three levels (medium, high or very high) according to the circulation of the virus, but in recent days he has seen how the Welsh authorities – with powers in health – have decided to decree a lockdown , as well as neighboring countries like France.

According to the latest data published this Friday by the National Statistics Office, last week alone some 570,000 new people were infected with the COVID-19.
