LONDON – UK Prime Minister Boris John on Wednesday called on Britain to abide by rules to avoid stricter corn virus controls, as cases of coronavirus reported in the country are on the rise.
“The best way to keep our children in school and move the economy forward, to protect the NHS, to save lives is to follow the rules wherever we live.”
“I don’t want to go back to a national lockdown where the overall guidance stays at home,” Johnson said in response to a question sent by a member of the public. “It’s not what we’re saying, we want to move the economy forward, we want to keep young people, students in education. But, the only way we can do that is if we all follow the guidelines and frustrate the virus.”
The prime minister, who recently apologized for tampering with the government’s own coronavirus rules, spoke to the government’s chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, and his chief scientific adviser, Patrick Valens, during a televised press conference.
The epidemic began shortly after the highest number of covid-19 infections in the country.

‘Discipline and determination’
Downing Street had earlier announced that domestic mixing in the north-east of England would be banned from Wednesday evening due to a sharp rise in the number of confirmed cases in the area.
The government also advised residents of the region to avoid mixing with people outside their homes in pubs and restaurants.
Johnson, who fell ill when he contracted the Covid-19 earlier this year, called on people to “call for discipline and resolve” to follow the latest rollout of coronavirus rules.
In a broadcast broadcast to the nation on September 23, the prime minister outlined new sanctions that could take up to six months, saying “too many have been violated.”
In England, restrictions included stricter rules for facial ingots, and the number of people allowed to marry was halved. Pubs, rest restaurants, rentals and other hospitality venues were also told to close by 10 p.m.
Hospitality locations will also have to close as soon as possible in Wales and Scotland, while Northern Ireland has already banned indoor mixed homes.
U.K. Millions of people in the country are now subject to local restrictions imposed to try to slow the outbreak of the coronavirus.
Yet, as pressure mounts on Johnson to implement the so-called “circuit-breaker” lockdown to bring the virus under control, leading lawmakers from the ruling Conservative Party have spoken out against the possibility of taking additional action.
Johnson suggested that the government should “reserve the right to proceed” with more stringent rules if the number of Kovid-19 cases and related deaths continues to rise.
