British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the national lockdown for the second time in England due to the outbreak of the new Coronavirus, with infections in Britain exceeding a million cases.
Johnson said, in a press conference on Saturday evening, that it is necessary to close non-essential goods stores and reception places for customers for four weeks, starting on Thursday.
This procedure differs from the previous closure last spring, given that the British government will allow schools and universities to operate and remain open to receive students.
This decision came when documents warned that deaths in Britain are likely to rise dramatically than what happened during the first wave of the outbreak of the Coronavirus, which causes Covid-19 disease.
The closure will continue until December 2; Johnson confirmed at a British government headquarters at 10 Downing Street.
