Johnson declares complete lockdown in England
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a general lockdown in Britain, starting from Thursday, after existing restrictions failed to prevent the number of infections from rising.
In a speech this evening, Johnson called on the British to stay home from Thursday until December 2 and not go out unless necessary.
Johnson explained that without the new measures, the number of deaths will increase more than it is today, stressing that he has strong hopes for a vaccine next year.
New British closures included unimportant stores, and schools excluded nurseries and universities.
The United Kingdom has crossed the 1 million new coronavirus cases since the outbreak of the epidemic.
