Boris Johnson: We are entering the last phase of the struggle
Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation from Downing Street on Monday night to announce a third national lockdown for England after rising coronavirus cases hit a new peak. The daily infection reports hit 50,000 or more for the seventh day running, prompting the Prime Minister to step up restrictions across the nation.
Speaking in the televised broadcast, he said: “I want to say to everyone right across the United Kingdom that I know how tough this is, I know how frustrated you are, I know that you have had more than enough of government guidance about defeating this virus.
“But now more than ever, we must pull together. You should follow the new rules from now, and they will become law in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Parliament will meet – largely remotely – later that day.
“I know that the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland share my conviction this is a pivotal moment and they’re taking similar steps.
“The weeks ahead will be the hardest yet but I really do believe that we are entering the last phase of the struggle.”
