Black Lives Matter

BORIS Johnson has urged anybody with coronavirus symptoms to order a test in today’s daily Covid-19 government press briefing.

This comes just hours after Home Secretary Priti Patel announced the Government’s quarantine plan, with new restrictions on travellers arriving in the UK unveiled.

Meanwhile, there are fears that Business Secretary Alok Sharma has contracted coronavirus, with the Reading MP now self-isolating after falling ill while he awaits test results.

Meanwhile, Brits have been given fresh hope that pubs could fully reopen by the end of the month under new Government plans.

Last night, it was revealed that breweries are hoping to deliver 250million pints to our pubs in the next fortnight, with landlords taking delivery of the first kegs from June 15.

However, England’s lockdown rules will now be reviewed every 28 days – meaning Brits must wait an extra week for any changes to the restrictions.

The latest coronavirus death toll in the UK hit 39,728 on Wednesday after 359 more deaths were recorded in the last 24 hours.
