The United Kingdom is one of the hardest hit countries by the coronavirus pandemic and the prime minister have taken a more stringent measure to stem the spread of the virus.
With immediate effect, all public gatherings of two or more people are banned in Britain.
The prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed this in a video address to the nation. He also imposed a stay-at-home order and a closure of all non-essential businesses, effectively, locking down the nation.
Many countries around Europe have also taken similar measures, with Italy being the hardest hit in total disarray after getting overwhelmed with the rising number of cases and deaths.
