England will go into lockdown for four weeks from Thursday

The procedures are similar to those in our country, and in some ways they are even more stringent. The English must also stay home as much as possible and should only have one contact outside the family. They may only meet this connection outside, in a public place. Unnecessary shops, pubs, bars and restaurants should be closed again. Home delivery and collection services are still possible, but the prime minister said that under certain circumstances people can go out:

  • To go to school or university
  • To go to work, for those who cannot work at home,
  • For walking or running in the fresh air
  • To go to the doctor or pharmacist
  • For food and other essential purchases
  • To take care of someone else

“We’re going to get past this, but we need to act now to contain the rise in infections,” Johnson said. “We will not go back to severe lockdown in March and April. The new measures will not go far. But from Thursday the same message will apply: stay home, protect our NHS and save lives.”
