Boris Johnson apologises for repeated confusion over coronavirus restrictions

BBC, 30 Sep 2020
There's evidence of growing confusion among the public about the new Covid restrictions being put in place in the north-east of England.

The confusion was added to by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson and a government minister, who failed to give accurate answers about the detail of the new restrictions.

Boris Johnson issued an apology for giving a misleading answer about the restrictions, after another Minister, Gillian Keegan, had said she could not provide an answer.

The new rules cover areas of north-east England and ban households from mixing indoors including in pubs and restaurants.

It’s also been announced that in parts of Wales another half a million people will be subject to tighter restrictions from Thursday.
