British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called vaccine opponents crazy. The video of his speech at the UN was published on the YouTube channel of the organization.
“It will be a terrible tragedy if we play into the hands of crazy anti-vaccinators, dangerous individuals with obsessions who oppose the very principle of vaccination,” Johnson said. He added that refusing vaccines could endanger millions of lives.
A rally against quarantine measures was being held in central London on the 26th of September, which was attended by more than 15 thousand people.
It became known that panic was noticed in British stores due to the strengthening of quarantine rules and the worsening situation with the coronavirus. Supermarkets have started to impose restrictions due to increased demand for a number of products.
Specifically, Tesco, the UK’s largest retailer, now allows a maximum of three packs of flour, pasta, toilet paper and other essentials to be purchased. Residents of the country fear an imminent repetition of the lockdown – the country has the worst infection rates per day since the start of the pandemic.
Earlier in September, Johnson announced new quarantine rules that will be in effect for the next six months. He urged all those who can work from home to stop going to offices. In addition, in public places it is now always necessary to wear masks; for non-compliance with this rule, the fine has been increased to 200 pounds sterling.
At the same time, if the police fail to control the measures, the authorities will be able to resort to the help of the army. On September 18, Johnson admitted that a second wave of coronavirus infection is starting in the country.
