The UK Office for National Statistics said there has been an increase in the number of people testing positive for coronavirus in England.

And there will be a further push to make sure more people are wearing face masks.

The PM also warned further coronavirus restrictions could be put in place.

He said that before the new measures were tweeted out late on Thursday, his team had been working for two weeks to arrange Eid prayers with the necessary social distancing.

And of course we continue to hope for the best.

"I'm afraid that in parts of Asia and in Latin America, the virus is gathering pace and some of our European friends are also struggling to keep it under control".

"We are at the outer edge of what we can do and therefore choices are going to be made".

"I know that the steps we are taking will be a real blow to many people", Johnson added.

The Prime Minister acknowledged that it was important to keep the advice being issued as simple as possible.

Search-and-rescue efforts were continuing Friday morning with support from the Navy and U.S. Christopher Bronzi, the commanding officer of the 15th MEU.

That means local authorities acting to close down premises and cancel events which are not following Covid Secure guidance. "And it means a greater police presence to ensure face coverings are being worn where this is required by law".

Nationwide lockdown changes which were due to take effect as of tomorrow have been scrapped with hours to spare.

Boris Johnson has postponed the next stage of easing lockdown restrictions planned for Saturday, which would have seen the return of casinos, bowling alleys, skating rinks, indoor performances and wedding receptions for up to 30 people.

Speaking alongside the Prime Minister at the Downing Street press conference, Professor Chris Whitty also suggested that the United Kingdom may have to "pull back" further to keep the virus under control. "We're now seeing a warning light on the dashboard". "It is right to respond in the way that we are".

British government announced on Friday that the easing of some restrictive measures will not take place as scheduled, as coronavirus infection numbers are creeping up.

"I know that the steps we are taking will be a real blow to many people, to everyone whose wedding plans have been disrupted or who can not now celebrate Eid in the way that they would wish and I'm really, really sorry about that but we can not simply take the risk", he said.

On Thursday evening it was announced that people from different households in Greater Manchester, parts of east Lancashire and West Yorkshire would no longer be allowed to meet each other inside their homes or in gardens.

The virus, which first emerged in China, has already killed at least 670,000 people and battered the global economy.

One person whinged: "This is ridiculous. So again, it can't be THAT serious or it would be immediately!" "Has COVID gone on holiday?"
