United Kingdom suspends normalization steps due to rise in corona virus cases

As many as 4 million people have been placed in isolation again due to a rise in corona virus cases in the north of England and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced the suspension of the process of normalization in the country.

Because of the outbreak of the corona virus, which continues to increase its impact worldwide, many countries have begun to restore restrictions.

Rising numbers of cases in the north of England have caused fears of a second wave, while 4 million people have been put in isolation again.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced in a statement that the process of normalization had been halted. Tougher divestment rules have been brought back in parts of Lancashire, West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.

People who live in Manchester and who are not from the same household in parts of East Lancashire and West Yorkshire are banned from meeting indoors, Health Minister Matt Hancock said in a statement.

Hancock said the second wave had recently begun in Europe, adding that those from Mediterranean countries, and especially Spain, needed to isolate themselves.

Prime Minister Johnson warned that caution should be taken on the second wave, although there was a reduction in case numbers in the city of Leicester, where the first local quarantine was imposed.
