Military Could Be Deployed In England To Enforce Coronavirus Laws, Says Boris Johnson


Boris Johnson has said the military could be deployed in England to enforce new coronavirus restrictions.

Speaking in the Commons on Tuesday, the prime minister said there would be “greater police presence” on the streets.

And he added there would be “the option to draw on military support where required”.

The move come after the government’s chief scientific and medical advisers warned there could be 50,000 UK cases a day by mid-October with a daily death toll of 200 or more by mid-November if the current growth in the rate of infection is not halted.

Johnson also today ripped up his push to persuade people to go back to their offices and told the public to work from home if they can.

Face masks will become compulsory for bar staff, shop workers, waiters and taxi drivers.

Pubs, bars and restaurants in England will have to close by 10pm each night and must operate as table service only from Thursday,

Businesses will be fined and could even be be closed if they breach the rules.
