England Banned Gatherings of More Than Six at One Place

  • In England, the government announced an emergency action by tightening laws to ban virtually all gatherings of more than six people in one place. To put light on the new rule, Boris Johnson will hold a press conference at Downing Street press conference amid concerns that the current regulations are both widely misunderstood and too tricky for the police authority to implement. The decision has been taken after a spike in the number of people infected with the virus, with almost 8,500 positive tests being recorded in England in the last three days. Ministers in the country are also worried that younger people ignoring the rules have helped push the daily rate of positive coronavirus tests in the UK to 2,400 or above for three consecutive days.
