British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is due on Monday to present a plan for how measures to combat coronavirus in the country will continue. The Prime Minister wants to avoid national isolation at all costs. The number of new infections is especially high in the north of the UK.
The British government wants to tighten local restrictions in the fight against the corona virus. “In addition to simple ground rules applicable to the entire country, we are developing a framework for locations that have been hit hard by the virus,” – Says Housing Minister Robert Gendrick on Sky News. The aim is to establish as close a working relationship as possible between the central government of London and local governments. Gendrick, however, is reluctant to comment on the measures that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is due to present on Monday. Manchester City Council chief Richard Lees told the Radio Times that there is now a “huge gap” “between us and the government.”

Madrid is considered one of the largest distribution points for the crown in Europe. A state of emergency has been in effect since Friday. In the northern Spanish region of Navarra, gatherings of more than six people should be banned, restaurants should halve the number of guests and close at ten in the evening.
