Safe Online Grocery Shopping During Lockdown with Kugans Online Supermarket
A GRIM REMINDER OF THE CURRENT SITUATION WITH COVID-19
With the number of COVID related fatalities increasing at a rapid rate not just in the United Kingdom, but throughout the globe, it is absolutely essential for families in London and throughout the country to stay safe and stay indoors during the tier-5 lockdown. This makes going grocery shopping a challenge as we have had to, and must continue to grow accustomed to government regulations set in place to ensure the safety of communities everywhere.
Your safety and the safety of your loved ones is important, and we cannot stress that enough! Maintaining social distancing to keep your community safe is also your responsibility. Not only will you be risking yourself by exposing yourself to the outside world during this pandemic, but you will also be risking the health and lives of those closest to you like your friends, neighbours, co-workers and families.
PM BORIS JOHNSON ON TIER-5 COVID LOCKDOWN IN THE UK
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated via BBC and other news channels to the nation on the 4th of January 2021 the following:
“Since the pandemic began last year, the whole United Kingdom has been engaged in a great national effort to fight Covid.
And there is no doubt that in fighting the old variant of the virus, our collective efforts were working and would have continued to work.
But we now have a new variant of the virus. It has been both frustrating and alarming to see the speed with which the new variant is spreading.
Our scientists have confirmed this new variant is between 50 and 70 per cent more transmissible – that means you are much, much more likely to catch the virus and to pass it on.
As I speak to you tonight, our hospitals are under more pressure from Covid than at any time since the start of the pandemic.
In England alone, the number of Covid patients in hospitals has increased by nearly a third in the last week, to almost 27,000.
That number is 40 per cent higher than the first peak in April.
On 29 December, more than 80,000 people tested positive for Covid across the UK – a new record.”
PM Johnson also stated:
“The number of deaths is up by 20 per cent over the last week and will sadly rise further. My thoughts are with all those who have lost loved ones.
With most of the country already under extreme measures, it is clear that we need to do more, together, to bring this new variant under control while our vaccines are rolled out.
In England, we must therefore go into a national lockdown which is tough enough to contain this variant.
That means the Government is once again instructing you to stay at home.”
