Boris Johnson considering lockdown again for Leicester following increase in new cases

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has stated the British Government is considering re-imposing a lockdown on the city of Leicester, after an increase in new coronavirus cases. Johnson has urged the people to remain cautious despite the fact that restrictions have been relaxed.

The British Premier expressed concern about the Covid-19 situation in this city, saying the country is still not out of danger. Johnson added that whilst well-thought-out steps are being taken from 4 July for the UK to re-open its economy, the risk is still there.

The Prime Minister added that one has to remain vigilant and continue to follow basic measures, and if necessary, local lockdowns will be re-introduced. Some 350,000 people live in Leicester, and over 650 cases have been registered in a fortnight since 16 June.
