Here is the full list of UK coronavirus testing centers – and how to get tested
Boris Johnson will address the British public again today (September 30) as the number of recorded coronavirus cases in the UK continues to rise
The Prime Minister’s speech will mark the 100th such briefing since the Covid-19 outbreak, and comes a day after the country recorded 7,143 new cases – the highest number of pandemics to date
M Johnson will be joined by Chief Medical Officer for England Professor Chris Whitty and Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance, who joined the Prime Minister on the podiums for his ‘rule of six’ announcement earlier in September. / p>
Today’s briefing will take place after the weekly Prime Minister’s Questions edition, which begins at 12 p.m.
It will start at 5pm and will be available to watch live on BBC News and Sky News
Although Downing Street press briefings were once daily, since June these events have been used sparingly and only to coincide with « important announcements »
As the number of positive coronavirus cases in the UK continues to rise, could the Prime Minister announce more restrictions on daily living to tackle the virus, just weeks after introducing the so called « rule of six »?
According to the prime minister’s official spokesperson, the purpose of the meeting is to « provide an update on the latest statistics »
The briefing would not have taken place because « there is a specific series of new announcements to be made »
According to Politico’s London Playbook, Johnson is not expected to announce immediate nationwide restrictions at this afternoon’s press conference, and the PM is expected to make a ‘state places ”of the current situation
They report that Johnson could use today’s briefing to sow the seeds for new measures that could be implemented « within the next week » if cases continue to climb
It could just be that the PM is hoping to use the briefing to clear up recent confusion over new lockdown rules being imposed in many parts of the country and to clarify the public health message being conveyed to the nation
Johnson himself is arguably responsible for this confusion and was forced to apologize after “misspoken” when speaking about new lockdown laws in the North East on September 29
PM asked to provide further details on whether people will still be allowed to meet in pub breweries following confusion over rules
In response, he said: “In the northeast and other areas where very strict measures have been introduced, you should follow the advice of local authorities, but there are six in one house, six in hospitality, but from what I understand that, not six outside «
« In the North East, new rules mean that you cannot meet people from different households in social settings indoors, including in pubs, restaurants and at home. You must also avoid socialize with other households outside «
Labor Deputy Leader Angela Rayner called the Prime Minister « manifestly incompetent » after failing to clarify the rules in the north-east of England, and local leaders criticized the government for not have given sufficient advance notice of the new restrictions
