THE prime minister has warned that a second wave of coronavirus could begin in two weeks with urgent action against it scheduled for three weeks later.
Boris Johnson told Britain he was extremely concerned about outbreaks ‘bubbling up’ in Britain by August 12th, and when that happened the government would act immediately following September 2nd.
He said: “As always we are led by the science, but we are also keeping a respectful and sensible distance from the science. A distance of about three weeks.
“So should infections begin to spike around Europe, we will not be slow to react by ordering all state employees back to work in offices, to save Pret.
“Should we then see a corresponding spike in Britain, I will waste no time in imposing quarantine on all travellers from abroad.
“And once the second wave has unmistakably begun, I pledge to act fast by making a speech defending the ancient right of free-born citizens of this country to go to the pub, and their wives to go to Next.
“Finally, and only once it is far too late, we will announce pubs, shops and of course schools are closing but inexplicably not until three days later. Like clockwork.”
