UK PM Johnson unveils measures to tackle COVID and keep firms open

Tue, 22nd Sep 2020 12:44

LONDON, Sept 22 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris
Johnson unveiled on Tuesday a new package of tougher measures to
try to tackle increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases, saying the
government would extend the use of masks and tighten the
so-called "rule of six".

In a speech to parliament, Johnson said he wanted to balance
tighter restrictions on life with keeping as many businesses as
possible open just as long as they were compliant with guidance
on how to be "COVID secure".

He said the four nations of the United Kingdom were all
moving in the same direction.
