In the United Kingdom, restaurants such as pubs were closed from late March this year, but it is said that the infection is calming down, and it resumed operations in England, which is the capital London, on the 4th.

Guests came to the pub near London early in the afternoon to enjoy beer and conversations with friends, keeping their distance.

People who visited said, "I'm happy to be back in town. There is no way to keep the distance," or "The pub is important because it is a place for local exchanges."

"I'm prepared, I think customers will come back," said pub co-owner Andrew Meredith.

However, in Leicester in central England, the infection spread again, and the restart of restaurants such as pubs was postponed, and restrictions were strengthened.

"We want to ensure the safety of our customers and staff and protect our pub business in the UK," said Emma McClarkin, chairman of the pub industry group.
