Boris Johnson pauses lockdown easing on weddings and casinos

Boris Johnson pauses lockdown easing on weddings and casinos”

Limited crowds were due to be allowed attend a small number of sporting events across England this weekend, but Johnson has pulled the plug on those plans following a spike in coronavirus cases. "Our assessment is that we should now squeeze that brake pedal in order to keep the virus under control", Johnson said in a televised press conference.

Moreover, as of Aug, 8, facial masks will be compulsory in galleries, cinemas, and places of worship. "We must be willing to react to the first signs of trouble". "I won't stand by and allow this virus to cause more pain and more heartache in our country".

The ONS also estimate that there are now 4,900 new infections every day up from around 3,000 per day on the 14th of July and 2,000 per day at the end of June.

The report noted the R value for the United Kingdom is between 0.8 to 0.9, a change from 0.7 to 0.9. Indoor performances will not resume.

On Thursday, the government re-imposed restrictions on social life in a swath of northern England because of a surge in cases, barring households from visiting one another. A number above 1 means the virus will spread exponentially.

The news comes after it was announced yesterday (Thursday) evening that from midnight today (Friday) two households will no longer be able to meet in Greater Manchester, East Lancashire and areas of West Yorkshire following a rise in cases.

Prof Whitty told the briefing: "If we wish to do more things in the future, we may have to do less of some other things".

"But we have to be realistic about this".

Mark Francois, the chairman of the European Research Group of Conservative MPs, said: "The Government's got to stop sending contradictory signals".

He also voiced concerns about the apparent failings in enforcement of rules and said he had asked the Home Secretary, Priti Patel, "to work with the police and others to ensure the rules which are already in place are properly enforced".

Mr Johnson said the pause will go ahead as planned, adding that medical experts will be explaining more about the decision later.

The Government will write to clinically vulnerable people living in areas where additional public health measures require them to continue shielding.

"I know that the steps we are taking will be a heavy blow to many people - to everyone whose wedding plans have been disrupted, or who now can not celebrate Eid in the way they would wish, I am really, really sorry about that".
