The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has warned his fellow citizens on Wednesday that the United Kingdom is found “at a critical moment” in the fight against coronavirus. In the second appearance in a week, Johnson reiterated his call to the population to respect the special measures imposed to curb the virus.

Despite the fact that a quarter of the population is subjected to severe restrictions, the number of infections continues to rise every day. The last balance added 7,108 and 71 deaths. A national confinement It’s not on the agenda for now, but Johnson isn’t ruling it out either. “If the tests require it, I will not hesitate to take the measures that, I fear, will be more expensive than the current ones. The epidemic “going in the wrong direction”, warned the two main scientific advisers of the Government, who accompanied the prime minister in his appearance. A bad indication is the return to these follow-up televised conferences, which had been suspended with the de-escalation and will be held regularly again.


The House of Commons supported, by 330 votes in favor and 24 against, the extension for six more months of the coronavirus law, which gives the government emergency powers to impose restrictions on the country. The approval was preceded by a outbreak of rebellion of fifty conservative deputies, who accuse the Executive of govern “by decree”. A revolt that put in precarious the already touched authority of Johnson. The prime minister had to promise that he will submit the future introduction of national measures against the epidemic to parliamentarians for consideration.

The president of the Chamber (‘speaker’) had rejected the amendment of the rebels, but he echoed the discomfort reigning. Lindsay Hoyle accused the Executive of “belittling” Parliament. “The way in which the government has exercised its powers to legislate during this crisis has been completely unsatisfactory,” she said. “I am counting on the Government to regain the trust of this House and not treat it with contempt that has shown. “
