Starting today, very drastic measures have been taken again in the UK to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. There are about 6 million people in the east and southeast of England as of today in what is called “Level 4”, which is the highest level of Corona alert in England. This includes prohibiting leaving your home. Similar lockdowns are now in effect in Scotland and Northern Ireland. In Wales, some measures are back in effect after being temporarily suspended for Christmas.
The stricter measures, with all non-essential stores, hairdressers, swimming pools and fitness centers closed, now apply to around 24 million people in England, more than 40 per cent of the population.
About 570 deaths were reported in the UK on Christmas Day, bringing the total number of deaths since the start of the pandemic to over 70,000, to 70,195 to be exact. According to Johns Hopkins University, more deaths have been reported only in the United States, Brazil, Mexico and Italy.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II delivered a live Christmas message yesterday: “For many at this time of year grief shines through. Some mourn the loss of a loved one, others miss family and friends who are now away for security reasons, while the only thing they want is Really a simple hug or handshake for Christmas. If you are one of them, you are not alone. “
