Due to the wake of the second coronavirus wave in the country, the British Government is planning to impose a second lockdown nationwide.
The British Health Secretary, Matt Hancock has announced that a nationwide lockdown could be imposed as a last resort to curb the growing number of coronavirus cases.
According to the details, the British Health Secretary, during a press briefing stated that due to the growing number of coronavirus cases, there is a possibility to impose the second lockdown in the country.
However. The British Health Secretary refused to comment about how the UK would be shut down during the imposition of the second lockdown.
Earlier, the UK had experienced one of the worst outbreaks of coronavirus in the World, at the beginning of the pandemic. Despite its world-class health facilities, there were complaints of lack of virus testing, contact tracing, and delayed lockdown measures. Some health experts also pointed out these factors in the spread of the deadly virus.
A ‘Stay at Home’ order was imposed by the British Government on 23 March, under which two months of strict lockdown measures were implemented across the country.
The UK had witnessed signs of controlling the virus in mid-May. In July, the UK economy began to re-open again, and at the start of September educational institutions reopened.
However, the recent spike in cases in the UK has promoted concerns that the country began a normal life so early.
