First coronavirus death in nearly two weeks at Chesterfield Royal Hospital

Another person died after testing positive for coronavirus in Chesterfield, confirmed the NHS in England.

The number of deaths at Chesterfield Royal Hospital is now 131. This is the first death reported in Chesterfield since 22 June.

On March 16, Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on everyone in the UK to work from home and avoid pubs and restaurants.

Schools, pubs, restaurants and other hangouts were ordered to close.

And on March 23, the public in the UK was ordered to stay home except for the travel necessary to buy food or medicine or to go to work for those who are key workers.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on May 9 that the blockade would be slightly loosened while outlining a plan to get the UK out of the blockade.

People can now do unlimited physical activity and those who cannot work from home can go to work.

Since 1 June some schools have been reopened and now up to six people can meet outside, provided that the rules for social removal are respected.

Pubs, restaurants and other businesses have been reopened this weekend as blockades continue to be lifted.

Boris Johnson urged the public not to “overdo” when restrictions on coronavirus blockade were eased in England on Saturday.

On Friday evening, the Prime Minister led a Downing Street press conference ahead of the reopening of pubs, restaurants and hairdressers.

But he urged people to be careful while having fun, amid concerns that a failure to respect social distancing could lead to an increase in Covid-19 cases.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said at a Westminster briefing: “(Johnson) said he wants to see people who are able to go out and have fun, but it is also very clear that everyone must be careful, be alert and follow the guide .

“The guide is there to keep everyone safe and to control the spread of the virus and it is extremely important that everyone follows the advice and makes sure they don’t go overboard.”

When asked if Mr. Johnson would go to a pub or restaurant on Saturday, the spokesman said, “He spoke of his enthusiasm for a haircut and a pint earlier, but I don’t know exactly what he’s doing on Saturday.”
