UK's 10pm curfew on pubs prompts 'nanny state' backlash | ABC News

Boris Johnson has been accused of running a nanny state after imposing a 10pm “covid curfew” on pubs and restaurants in England. In some cities, the measure has pushed crowds of people into the streets after closing time. But despite the backlash, there are signs his government’s containment measures, which includes a ban on more than six people socialising, may be starting to work. The government also sends out 150,000 home testing kits a month. The “R” rate has come down in the UK but daily cases are still about 7000.
