Britain on Emergency Footing for First Time Since WWII
Monday, 30 March 2020 17:03 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Britain is on an emergency footing for the first time since World War II.

The move means the British government is setting up what it calls strategic coordination centers across the U.K. to distribute supplies to citizens to help combat the coronavirus outbreak. 

There are more than 22,000 British confirmed cases of coronavirus “ Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Prince Charles are among them. More than 1,200 have died. The government's deputy chief medical officer says the lockdown could last as long as six months but says if people do as they're told and conditions improve, the lockdown and other restrictions can start to be eased.

In Moscow, the lockdown is just getting started. Mayor Sergei Sobyanin says beginning Monday, people will be allowed out of their homes only to shop for food and medicine, takeout the garbage, walk the dog, or for urgent medical care.

Police will issue special passes to those who cannot work from home. Moscow reports 1,000 cases and the head of the Russian Orthodox Church is telling worshippers to pray at home œbefore someone dies.
