Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said Britain is heading for a “serious crisis” as the number of COVID victims rises. New ways will have to be found to prevent the spread of COVID. “Even if such a solution is found, it will take a long time to implement,” he said.
At the same time, rising mortality rates are raising concerns. He added that there was a need to re-impose strict controls in the country. Leading figures in the health sector have said the current situation in the country is out of control. However, the Prime Minister last week imposed some restrictions, including the opening hours of pubs. Local lockdowns have been announced in many places. After that, the British government and health workers warned that they would have to go back to tougher controls because of the rising rate of COVID.
