In the northern British city of Manchester, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been continuously caught up with the local mayor Andy Burnham about whether to transfer the city from the second-tier restrictions in the United Kingdom to the most stringent first-tier restrictions. Three levels of trouble.
Johnson said on Friday: “If an agreement cannot be reached, I will need to intervene to protect the Manchester hospital and save the lives of Manchester residents.” He urged Burnham to “reconsider his position”
But Burnham rejected the government’s efforts to increase the severity of the city’s measures and urged more fiscal measures to protect workers in the area who are subject to stricter regulations.
On Sunday, when Michael Gove, a member of Johnson’s cabinet, called on Burnham to “set aside some of the political stances they were addicted to, the dispute escalated.”
In an interview with Sky News, Gove said: “I hope they will cooperate with us to ensure that we save lives and protect national health services… instead of a press conference, and show what we need to do to save people’s lives. .” The team continued.
The tension is far from the first peak of the coronavirus in the United Kingdom. At that time, all four countries in the United Kingdom were basically unanimously entered into a state of lockdown, and the regional authorities and the public had insisted.
Instead, in some parts of the United States, people are confused about which rules they must follow, which depends largely on whether the local government is willing to follow the government’s instructions.
In London, Mayor Sadiq Khan called for strict regulations to be adopted a few days before Johnson announced these regulations, while in Liverpool, Lancashire and other areas, agreements were reached with the government just before the weekend. Members expressed doubts about this.
But even if local leaders are willing to accept stricter regulations, the public seems reluctant to do so.
A similar situation has emerged across Europe, as leaders are working to resolve the difficulty of slowing the spread of Covid-19 by using a “light strike” method.
The court said that these restrictions prohibit residents from leaving the capital and nine suburbs last Friday. These measures interfered with “the fundamental rights of citizens who are not authorized by the law.”
For a long time, Spain’s left-wing governments and Madrid’s center-right regional governments have been dealing with pandemics, and the blockade measures are the latest political battleground.
In Germany, a series of court orders caused trouble for Angela Merkel’s government as she tried to deal with more and more cases.
Most notably, the Berlin court on Friday opposed the government and a group of business owners and suspended the curfew in bars and restaurants in the city.
In this case, the court found that it was “not obvious” that closing food and beverage establishments between 11 pm and 6 am would help fight infectious diseases. The court said that this measure took effect on October 10, and therefore was a “disproportionate violation” of the hotel industry.
Health Minister Jens Spahn said he was “very disappointed” by the ruling. He said: “There is no doubt that in big cities…especially late at night, what is happening in private and public places is current. The driving factor of the infection, according to AFP.
Emmanuel Macron (Emmanuel Macron) will pay close attention to controversy across Europe after a curfew in Paris and several other French cities that will take effect on Friday. So far, the French government has not raised major opposition to the plan.
In addition to being opposed by local legislators and aggrieved business owners, public security issues have also caused confusion in certain areas.
The Chief Police Officer of the Greater Manchester Police Service made a firm response to a report in The Telegraph on Saturday, which stated that people were “concerned” about whether officials would follow Burnham’s leadership and refuse to take measures prescribed by the Johnson government.
Ian Hopkins said in a statement: “We, together with colleagues across the country, do not feel fear or favor when performing police work and comply with the police department’s code of ethics.”
However, a large number of challenges from parliaments and the hotel industry are causing headaches for the governments of several European countries.
At the same time, cases across the African continent continue to rise. The United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Poland and the Czech Republic, as well as other countries/regions, all recorded the highest ever confirmed Covid 19 infection rate in October, as leaders warned of a serious winter outbreak.
