UK reimposes lockdown on virus-hit city of Leicester

By

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has adopted a “heavy molecule” strategy to control the disease, while at the same time allowing the economy to develop again.

The minister ordered the closure of schools and non-essential stores, and after the serious COVID-19 incident in the UK, postponed the plan to reopen the bar in Leicester, a city in central England.

The United Kingdom suffered the deadliest virus outbreak in Europe, killing more than 43,000 people, but Johnson began to relax last month the order for home use that was implemented nationwide in late March.

After warning him that his pace was too fast, and that infection and mortality were declining but slow, he vowed to curb local outbreaks, such as the “w-rat” game.

So far, the hospitals and factories attacked by the virus have been closed, but Leicester’s population of 340,000 is the first step in the massive restoration of the blockade.

“We must control this virus. We must keep people safe,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock told parliament after a lengthy meeting with local leaders, some of whom had opposed the measures.

“Local action like this an important tool in our armoury to deal with outbreaks while we get the country back on our feet.”

The dramatic action threatens to overshadow Johnson s big speech on Tuesday setting out how he plans to “build, build, build” to get Britain out of a deep recession brought on by the lockdown.

Johnson said that Britain needs a large-scale economic response mobilized by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt in response to the Great Depression.

He has allocated 1 billion pounds (1.2 billion US dollars) for school maintenance, and another 4 billion pounds for “shovel preparation” projects, which cover all maintenance work on roads to public transportation.

In an excerpt from his speech at Downing Street, Johnson said that his plan “sounds a lot like Roosevelt and sounds like a New Deal.”

“All I can say is that if so, then that is how it is meant to sound and to be, because that is what the times demand.”

Roosevelt (Roosevelt) launched the “New Deal” plan in the 1930s, which created a comprehensive social care system, and its legacy continues to this day.

Johnson won a majority of 80 seats in the December parliamentary elections and promised to withdraw Britain from the European Union and increase spending in poorer areas outside London.

Brexit took place on January 31-although London is still negotiating a trade agreement with Brussels-the coronavirus derailed the rest of his agenda.

In a speech at Dudley near Birmingham in central England on Tuesday, he will promise to use his own architectural solutions to address regional inequality.

“Too many parts of this country have felt left behind, neglected, unloved,” he will say.

So far, the government has avoided a substantial increase in the number of unemployed through the vacation plan, which has supported 9 million temporarily laid-off workers, but the plan has been delayed since August.

The independent Resolution Foundation think tank said that the government had no choice but to spend more money because “this virus will continue to keep activities below pre-pandemic levels.”

Johnson said in a report that Johnson should seek to “create job opportunities through direct public investment in social care and transformation.”

The government’s focus on spending has brought challenges to the main opposition Labor Party, which was elected in the December elections, but now has new leader Kiel Stamer.

“We are on the cusp of one of the biggest economic crises we have ever seen. The government must immediately prioritise protecting people s lives and livelihoods,” Starmer said.
