Present He was seen on Sunday cycling 11 kilometers from his home and therefore outside his local area
The United Kingdom decreed as of January 4 the tightening of measures to prevent cases of coronavirus and its variants were increasing in the way it was doing. That is why he imposed confinement. But Boris Johnson has considered that he can exceed those measures with the gesture he had last weekend.
The British Prime Minister is the center of criticism after being seen riding a bicycle away from his London residence, despite the fact that the population is asked to exercise near their home as part of the current confinement measures. But Sunday was seen wearing a helmet, a mask and riding a bicycle in the Olympic Park in East London and about eleven kilometers from his official residence at 10 Downing Street.
Now, the rules on confinement are somewhat ambiguous, but people are asked to limit their physical exercise – such as going for a run, a walk, or a bike ride – to their area close to home.
The media emphasize that Johnson is breaking the spirit of the rules after being seen riding a bike in the Stratford neighborhood, where the Olympic Park is, accompanied by his security personnel. Johnson likes to cycle from central London to Stratford, which he apparently did when he lived in the Islington neighborhood of North London, according to the press.
For this reason it has not taken long to criticize. The Labor MP Andy Slaughter stated that the Head of Government should “lead by example” given that London has a high level of COVID-19 infections but that, Johnson is, “once again, do what I say and not what I do “.
