    He says he will comment on the rising number of cases, and how we must act now.

    At every stage the government has struck a delicate balance, he says, between the need to protect people, and the need to allow life to go on.

    But the prospect of a second wave was real, he says. He says the UK is at a “perilous turning point”.

    He says the doubling rate for new cases could be between seven and 20 days.

    Johnson says he would like to be able to say that the increase in new cases is just driven by more testing. But the positivity rate is going up too, he says.

    He says in the last fortnight hospital admissions in England have doubled.

    And he says Covid is likely to spread more in the autumn.

    Yesterday the Covid alert level was increased to 4.

    So this is the moment when we must act, he says.

    Johnson says the government is acting “on the principle that a stitch in time saves nine”.

    He says he will announce measures for England intend to protect people, while minimising the impact on livelihoods.

    First, office workers are being asked to work from home.


    But if people need to go to work, they should continue to do so.

    MPs will continue to work in a Covid-secure way, he says.


    Second, Johnson says, from Thursday pubs and restaurants will have to offer table service, except for takeaways. And they will close from 10pm.

    Third, staff in retail and indoor hospitality will have to wear masks. And they will be needed in taxis.

    Fourth, Covid-secure workplace rules will become a legal obligation.

    Fifth, the rule of six will be amended so that only 15 people can attend weddings from Monday.

    And, sixth, from 1 October the plan to ease the rules for sports evens will be suspended.

    He hasn't announced a new 3 word saying though, so that's something new....Maybe he should go for 4 words: "DRINK FECK ARSE GIRLS"
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
