The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom announced the establishment of a new COVID alert level system in order to monitor progress. This system has five levels and each relating to the level of threat posed by the virus.
Fewer the cases, lesser the measure; higher the cases, stricter the measure
PM clearly states that the fewer the cases the lesser the measure and the higher the cases stricter the measure. In the period of lockdown which started from March 23, the United Kingdom is under level 4. That means the cases in the United Kingdom are very high and their transmission power increases exponentially. Because of the support of the British people now the cases registered are comparatively low.
And, now the nation enters into level 3, with less number of cases. The journey from level 4 to level 3 should be followed by three steps. He said that farther ease will be given on the basis of how it will be the effect on the number of cases.
The steps are the following:
- Those who cannot work from home can now spend time outdoors and exercise as often as you like. People can meet one person out of your household. He again focuses on social distancing to reduce the transmission of the virus. This rule started this week.
- If the data allows, the primary school children will also be allowed to reopen to school from June 1st week. The number of students in classes is low.
