The UK Government is keen to make Christmas 2020 as close to a normal Christmas as possible. Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans that families can get together between December 22 and 28.
According The Telegraph, the Downing Street plan envisages in exchange that the British continue to be subjected to strict confinement until then, and after.
It is scheduled to be this Monday when Johnson announces his plan, which would allow several family nuclei to join in the same ‘bubble’. The measure would allow relatives to spend several days together and they would not have to choose between grandparents.
But England’s Public Health officials have already warned that for each day of easing it would demand “five days of stricter restrictions”, which would mean that after the holidays, another 25 will come from confinement.
Flattening the curve
This Friday, the Minister of Health, Matt HancockHe said Britain “is heading in the right direction.”
Hancock said the peak of the second coronavirus wave is “flattening out” as they were recorded 20,252 more cases and 511 new deaths. “We are clearly near the peak of this second increase and the second wave,” said the minister.
