The UK government has reportedly discussed increasing COVID restrictions even further by only allowing people to leave their homes once a week.
Claiming that the national health service is at breaking point, the government is reportedly considering implementing stricter rules, including compulsory masks outside, and banning “ extended bubbles ”, where people are allowed to meet someone from another household.
Most frightening, however, is the revelation that cabinet ministers debated privately to prevent people from talking to each other on the streets and in supermarkets, and even to prevent people from leaving their homes more than once a week, and introduce curfews.
Speaking to reporters, Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi said: “We are reviewing all restrictions,” adding: “I am concerned that supermarkets and people are actually wearing masks and following the one-way system, and make sure that when they’re at the supermarket. “
“I’m worried about some of the images I’ve seen of social interactions in parks, if you have to exercise you can only go out to exercise,” Zahawi said.
A government source also told the Daily Telegraph that the current rule that allows people to meet someone from another home for exercise is “used as an excuse for people to go for coffee in the park with their children. friends’ and will likely be scrapped.
The source added that the government was discussing “to ensure that people do not use their own creativity to interpret the rules as they see fit.”
The report suggests that enforcement will be further tightened, with on-the-spot fines ranging from £ 200 to £ 500.
The revelations come after a weekend where police were seen cracking down on people on the streets of Britain.
A video emerged showing police arresting people who were walking, sitting on benches and drinking coffee outside.

In addition, two women were questioned and fined by police for walking around a remote area 5 miles from their place of residence, although this is not illegal under coronavirus laws. The police told the women that the hot drinks they were carrying constituted a “picnic.”
Video also emerged of police officers themselves sitting in a cafe drinking coffee, with the person filming them wondering why they were breaking the rules:
In another incident, a couple with a baby and a stroller were toasted by COVID police in Birmingham city center simply for walking down the street. The report noted that police community support officers then began interviewing people who had arrived at a pharmacy to collect prescription drugs.
Meanwhile, in Scotland, a family was arrested after police entered their home, acting on a neighbor’s report that there were “too many people inside”.
A local police department even angrily tweeted about “2 reports of throwing snowballs” in violation of coronavirus lockdown rules.
Last week we reported on police announcing a new ‘tough’ lockdown policy to arrest and question people if they are on the streets, and to impose fines. instant if they can’t provide a reasonable excuse to be out of their homes.
Police also said they would specifically target “anti-lockout and anti-vaccine protesters,” saying “we now have a hardcore element that is against the rules.”
Police are also calling for new powers to force entry into the homes of suspected lockdown violators.
The government has come under fire for putting in place a third lockdown, in which everyone is limited to congregating in parks and going to the supermarket only.
Critics say it forces people into the same spaces, rather than allowing people to disperse naturally.
Reports emerged over the weekend that the restrictions were to remain in place at least until March 23, but the government has given no official timeline for how long the lockdown will last, nor any indication of when the restrictions will be. reinforced or lifted.
