On a sunny weekend, British police had to intervene to enforce compliance with the rules that would limit the spread of Covid-19.
The Observer newspaper narrates some of the scenes of security interference, which includes the dismantling of a wedding party in Manchester and the dispersal of some family gatherings.
It also reports that the police warn about the arrest scenario that may face more protesters who organized demonstrations in central London condemning them to tighten the closure procedures in parts of England, and some of them wore T-shirts painted and written on them with calls to dismiss the top scientific advisers whom the government relies on in its decisions, describing the Coronavirus as a hoax.
While the Sunday Telegraph talks about imposing fines exceeding 10 thousand pounds sterling against the violators of health isolation among those infected with Coronavirus, The Independent quotes the British scientist, Neil Ferguson, as saying that the United Kingdom is now facing a “full-fledged storm”, and it may return to the scenario of mid-March.
When deaths were in the hundreds a day.
The leader of the opposition Labor Party, Keir Starmer, as well as the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, called for an urgent security meeting to study the possible steps taken by Boris Johnson to contain the epidemic in its second wave.
The Independent adds that it may be time to close the bars again and review orders to return to work offices and prevent family gatherings to curb Coronavirus.
