UK PM Johnson: We do think masks have a great deal of value in confined spaces
Comments by UK prime minister, Boris Johnson
- We have got the virus under control across the country
- It is very important to wear a face covering in shops
- Will look at the guidance and say more in the next few days
Judging by recent remarks by the government, it is only a matter of time now before masks are surely going to be mandatory in shops across the UK.
In the US, Trump also wore a mask in public over the weekend but we'll see if he will start doing so outside of the hospital. If so, that could mark a change of a stance and may help to create more health awareness in mitigating the spread of the virus.
