The UK authorities reported Tuesday that another 138 coronavirus deaths were confirmed on the country’s last day, bringing the death toll to 44,968 since the pandemic started.
Health minister Matt Hancock, who has confirmed that mask use will be mandatory in stores and supermarkets as of July 24, has assured that the government is initially trying not to restrict some areas of the country with flare-ups or setbacks.
It has been said that the Blackburn community has imposed more restrictive security measures on Darwen to try not to close the area completely. In this area, the use of the mask in closed rooms has immediately become mandatory.
In the case of Leicester, Hancock said that Downing Street will take a decision to lift the restriction measures in the region once all the data collected in the past 14 days has been analyzed.
A total of 291,373 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in the country since the pandemic began, 398 of them in the last 24 hours. In addition, 142,162 tests were performed on the last day, out of a total of 12 million since the outbreak of the health crisis.
