The British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, announced new measures in the House of Commons this Monday afternoon. The British leader has assured that despite the fact that the fight against the coronavirus is going “well”, there are currently more people admitted to British hospitals of which there were in March, during the quarantine.

“I don’t think we need to go back to one quarantine“said the prime minister who added that this situation” would deprive young people of education and it would hurt the economy “. Still, Johnson has assured that we should not “stand still and let the virus spread because that would mean a large increase in deaths.”

Johnson explained that measures will be implemented depending on the state of the disease in each area, for now the different territories will be classified into three categories of intensities with which the state of the epidemic will be assessed every bit. In the areas where the risk is highest, we will proceed to close gyms, leisure centers, bookmakers, casinos, bars and pubs among other measures to be agreed with local governments.
