UK facing coronavirus “tipping point” as cases surge warns government – BBC News

The British government has issued a stark warning that the nation is at a tipping point with a surge in coronavirus cases. It’s said that it will impose more restrictions in England unless people follow the rules.

Boris Johnson’s key medical and scientific advisers are to deliver a televised briefing on the threat posed by a second wave of the pandemic.

In future people will be under a legal obligation to self-isolate if they test positive for the virus — or have been in close contact with an infected person — with fines of up to £10,000 for failure to comply.

It comes as Europe faces a surge in Covid cases with new measures to contain infections being introduced in many countries.
