British residents who refuse to comply with self-isolation will be fined again. The country’s restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic will be tougher, Health Minister Matt Hancock told the BBC.
The penalty for violation of self-isolation could be up to 10 thousand pounds sterling.
“If everyone follows the rules, we will be able to avoid further isolation at the national level,” the minister stressed. According to him, the new resolution will come into force from September 28.
Self-isolation will be mandatory for those who have positive tests, as well as for those who were in close contact with the infected.
In the case of the first violation, the fine will be 500 pounds for those with low income, for the rest – a thousand. In the case of repeated violation, it will be necessary to pay already 10 thousand.
“We must do everything possible to control the spread of this virus, prevent the infection of the most vulnerable people,” said Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
