What Are The New Measures Taken By The UK Which Imposed Curfew?
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on the evening of March 23, made a curfew to everyone except those who had to go to work.
The exceptions to this ban are mandatory basic purchases such as food and medicine, helping someone in need and going out for exercise once a day.
Exercises can only be done with people living in the household.
More than two people from different households will not be able to come together.
On the way to going to work, Johnson told everyone to work from home, “except where absolutely necessary.”
Prime Minister Johnson has announced that shops selling items that are not vital, such as clothing and electronics, will also be closed.
All libraries, playgrounds, outdoor sports centers and places of worship will be closed throughout the country.
Indoor sports halls were closed before.
Weddings and baptism ceremonies will not be allowed. Funeral ceremonies are within the scope of the exception.
These bans are planned to take three weeks. Johnson said, however, that the measures will be continually reviewed and mitigated if necessary.
Police were also empowered to follow these rules. Penalties may be imposed on those who break the rules.
Police hope to ‘settle for persuasion’
Senior police officers are hoping that people will consent rather than violently intervene in the kind seen in continental Europe.
The police will also have the power to impose sentences, but instead, they hope to be satisfied by persuasion.
Ultimately, the goal is not to generate fines by fining the state. The cops hope that the shops will be closed by the owners and people will stop coming together.
In the coming weeks, large numbers of police are expected not to go to work due to their own health problems or their families’ health problems. This makes it difficult to carry out strict inspections on the field.
Why did the UK government need final restrictions?
Ministers and officials were concerned about the news that people were not following recommendations on social distances.
At the weekend, with the effect of the beautiful weather, people tried to fill the parks and other areas in the open air and enjoy the arrival of spring, and the photos showing how crowded the subways and trains are still on the first day of the week.
The figures announced show that the daily increase of coronavirus cases increases a little more every day, and the authorities want to get the most out of social distances once they are under restrictions.
If we can cut the contacts in half, it will be possible to reduce the number of new cases by 95 percent. Scientists now think that each person carrying a coronavirus infects an average of 2.5 people within 5 days. With this account, one person makes 400 people sick in 30 days.
But if we cut the normal contact level of people to half, it is calculated that this will reduce the number of people who will receive the disease from that person by up to 15 within 30 days.
