The announcement was made hours after Prime Minister Boris Johnson ruled out the country’s return to strict confinement and promised a grand public investment plan to rebuild the pandemic-hit economy.

“We cannot recommend that the relaxation of the national closure”, scheduled for next Friday, be applied in Leicester, Health Minister Matt Hancock said in an appearance before Parliament.

By virtue of that decision, non-essential shops will have to be closed from tomorrow and schools from Thursday, as well as any non-essential travel from to Leicester was prohibited, according to the Europa Press news agency.

“The outbreak led to a contagion from the community and that is why we have had to take more measures; I do not want to have to take this type of action but we are perfectly prepared to do so”

Matt Hancock-Minister of Health

The official added that the measure will be reviewed in two weeks.

Leicester concentrates 10% of the registered coronavirus cases in the United Kingdom in the last week.

Earlier, Johnson said the coronavirus crisis was a “disaster” and an “absolute nightmare” for the United Kingdom and promised a plan to increase public investment, while ruling out returning to a time of austerity as he believed it would be an error for the recovery of the country.

“The country has gone through a deep shock, but at those moments we have the opportunity to change and do things better, we really want to rebuild better, do things differently, invest in infrastructure, transportation, broadband, whatever” , Held.

Johnson’s remarks were provided to Times Radio, the brand-new landmark of The Times newspaper owned by tycoon Rupert Murdoch, which launched today with a large investment and an exclusive interview with the premier.

There, he anticipated a “huge investment effort” by the public to rebuild the economy after the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic and said he will promote “a Rooseveltian approach”, in reference to the plan that US President Franklin Roosevelt proposed to remove the United States. of the Great Depression in the 1930s of the last century.

“This is the time to invest in infrastructure, this is the time to make those long-term decisions for the good of the country,” emphasized the prime minister, who announced that in August he will make the plan public.

He said this “will get companies to trust and start investing and creating new jobs and driving new growth.”

In that line, the government has already promised a school rebuilding plan with an investment of £ 1 billion for 50 projects and a further £ 560 million for maintenance.

On the pandemic, Johnson said he is concerned about high rates of infection and total deaths, but said the numbers are much lower than a few weeks ago and will focus on taking action against local outbreaks of the virus, such as the case of the Leicester city that will continue in quarantine for two more weeks, while England is already in its last stage of de-escalation.

Regarding an investigation into the management of the pandemic by the government, he argued that this is not the right time to do so.

“We owe it to all those who have died, to all who have suffered to see exactly what went wrong and when. I understand it and we will do that,” he added.

The United Kingdom is the fifth country with the most cases of coronavirus, with 313,467 (815 in the last 24 hours) and the third with the most deaths from the disease, with 43,575 (25 on the last day), the Ministry of Health reported this afternoon. .

Australia closes state border for first time in 100 years after coronavirus spike

SYDNEY – The border between Australia’s two most populous states will close from Tuesday for an indefinite period as authorities scramble to contain an outbreak of the coronavirus in the city of Melbourne.

The decision announced on Monday marks the first time the border between Victoria and New South Wales has been shut in 100 years. Officials last blocked movement between the two states in 1919 during the Spanish flu pandemic.

“It is the smart call, the right call at this time, given the significant challenges we face in containing this virus,” Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews told reporters in Melbourne.

The move will, however, likely be a blow to Australia’s economic recovery as it heads into its first recession in nearly three decades.

The number of COVID-19 cases in the Victorian capital of Melbourne has surged in recent days, prompting authorities to enforce strict social-distancing orders in 30 suburbs and put nine public housing towers into complete lockdown.

The state reported 127 new COVID-19 infections overnight, its biggest one-day spike since the pandemic began. It also reported two deaths, the first nationally in more than two weeks, taking the national tally to 106.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said there was no timetable for reopening the border, which will be patrolled by the military to prevent illegal crossings from 11.59 p.m. local time on Tuesday.

The state line is highly porous, with 55 roads, wilderness parks and rivers. Some businesses straddle both sides and several workers and school children, commute daily.

Lyn McKenzie, who runs a paddle steamer business along the Murray River from Mildura, a border city of 30,000 people, is waiting for more detail to gauge the full impact on her business.

McKenzie lives on the NSW side of the river, the boats pick up passengers from the Victoria side and the river itself is classified as part of NSW.

“I’m seeing this as possibly needing to shut down again, but it’s a bit early for me, not knowing the exact details,” McKenzie told Reuters.

Berejiklian said people would be able to apply for daily permits to cross the border, but added there would be delays of around three days in issuing the passes.

Paul Armstrong, who runs a petrol station in Wodonga, a border town on the Victorian side, said his children live in New South Wales but go to school in Victoria.

“I wonder if they will need permits,” Armstrong said. Schools in Victoria are in their second week of the two-week winter vacation. Schools in New South Wales began their two-week term break on Monday.

NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said the military would provide round-the-clock aerial and other surveillance to enforce the closure. Victoria’s only other internal border, with South Australia state, has been closed since March 22 under previous coronavirus measures.

Melbourne lockdown

Australia has fared better than many countries in the coronavirus pandemic, with just short of 8,500 cases so far, but the Melbourne outbreak has raised alarm bells.

The country has reported an average of 109 cases daily over the past week, compared with an average of just 9 cases daily over the first week of June.

Melbourne locals are concerned that renewed social distancing measures have not been implemented uniformly across the city.

“Without a full Melbourne lockdown, I am not super confident this is going to be contained,” Jack Bell, a lifeguard who lives in Victorian suburb of Kensington, told Reuters.

Kensington is one of the 30 suburbs that have reimposed social distancing measures. The nine public housing blocks that have been subjected to a complete lockdown, Australia’s first, are in neighboring North Melbourne and Flemington.
