British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will order pubs and restaurants to shut across much of northern England, including in Manchester and Liverpool, from Monday in a bid to halt the spiraling COVID-19 outbreaks there, The Sun reported on Wednesday. Britain, which has already suffered the highest death toll in Europe and the worst economic contraction of any leading nation, has reported more than 14,000 new cases of coronavirus a day in the last two days.
