PV International Desk : British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he would set out how sectors of the economy which remain in a coronavirus lockdown – such as indoor gyms, swimming pools and nail bars – would be allowed to reopen.
The government allowed non-essential retailers in England to reopen last month and pubs, restaurants and cinemas are due to open their doors again on Saturday, under social distancing rules.
Johnson said his government would also set out how amateur cricket matches – a traditional feature of the English summertime – can start up again.
“We will be publishing guidelines in the next few days so that cricket can resume in time for next weekend,” he said.
While professional cricket has already been given the green light to restart, government advisors have been worried that the balls used in the sport could act as a vector for spreading the coronavirus. Source-Reuters
