England’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a new national lockdown for England, with citizens instructed to “stay at home” as they did during March’s first lockdown.
Mr. Johnson revealed the new lockdown in an eight-minute TV address on Monday evening, after being told that COVID-19 cases are rising rapidly in every part of the country due to the new strain of the coronavirus.
According to the address England will go back into full national coronavirus lockdown with schools closed and the public required to stay at home until at least mid-February.
“Now more than ever we must pull together,” he said, adding that we should “once again stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.”
