UK Govt: Sex with out­sider banned in Eng­land homes to con­trol coro­n­avirus

Fiji Sun - - WORLD/ASIA/CHINA NEWS -

Lon­don: Ever since the novel coro­n­avirus lock­down has been im­ple­mented, a lot of changes have taken place in our lives. Well, an­other change just took place in Eng­land and it is just bizarre. In the coun­try, the gov­ern­ment is in­tro­duc­ing a new mea­sure ac­cord­ing to which hav­ing sex in­side your house with a per­son you don’t live with is set to be­come illegal. This is a part of new lock­down guide­lines that the coun­try is in­tro­duc­ing to con­trol novel coro­n­avirus.

Un­der the new mea­sures, if a per­son is gath­er­ing with one or more peo­ple, who don’t live with them, in­side their home or flat it will be against the law.

Ear­lier, the lock­down rules said that trav­el­ling with­out a valid rea­son was pun­ish­able, but it did not talk about peo­ple vis­it­ing an­other per­son’s home.

Un­der the new guide­lines, both peo­ple would be pros­e­cuted un­der the law, which were in­tro­duced on Mon­day. The new rule bans be­ing in­side the house with a gath­er­ing of more than one per­son with­out a rea­son­able ex­cuse.

The new rule reads, “No per­son may par­tic­i­pate in a gath­er­ing which takes place in a pub­lic or pri­vate place in­doors, and of two or more per­sons.”

Though the new law doesn’t ex­plic­itly ban sex, it cat­e­gor­i­cally puts an end to lock­down sex for peo­ple in Eng­land.

The rules come af­ter the coun­try is de­cid­ing to ease the lock­down which was im­ple­mented be­cause of the novel coro­n­avirus out­break.

A few days ago, Prime Min­is­ter Boris John­son’s top aide Do­minic Cum­mings also com­mit­ted a breach when he took a trip to stay at his par­ents’ property with his wife Mary Wake­field and child dur­ing the novel coro­n­avirus lock­down.

The move was crit­i­cised by the cit­i­zens and many de­manded that Cum­mings re­sign af­ter the scan­dal.
