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

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

According The Times, the Head of Government will give a press conference on Monday to announce the new measures that, in principle, will imply a generalized closure of the activity, except for the shops of essential products and educational centers.

This confinement would begin on Monday and would continue until December 1.

However, the sources consulted by the newspaper indicate that there is still no final decision has been made on the scope of the new restrictions.

Figures exceed worst-case scenario

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

As such, Johnson is expected to renounce the regional containment approach that he recently put in place, which classified the territories with a traffic light system that determined the restrictions.

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, only last week were infected throughout the country 570,000 new people with covid.

In the last 24 hours, 274 people died from the disease, and there were 24,405 new positives in laboratory tests.
