CALL FOR EXECUTION FROM JOHNSON
While outdoor sports facilities such as tennis courts, swimming pools and golf courses are allowed to reopen, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called for caution due to increased cases elsewhere in Europe.
“I know how much organized sport misses and how difficult it is to restrict physical activities, especially for children,” said Johnson.
THE COUNTRY WITH THE HIGHEST LOSS OF LIVES IN EUROPE
Currently, according to the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) report, England is the country with the highest Covid-19 death rate in Europe, with more than 126 thousand casualties from Covid-19.
In the statements made on Monday, it was reported that the relaxation in the schools was underlined, the citizens were encouraged to work from home and the travel ban continued.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson also stated that other strict rules will be further relaxed in the coming weeks, provided that the vaccination program continues uninterrupted in the UK and infection rates do not increase.
