While a news phase of deconfinement was to begin in the United Kingdom, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced its postponement on July 31 and imposed new restrictions to respond to the recent rise in the number of coronavirus cases in the country, which remains the most bereaved of Europe with nearly 46,000 dead.

Boris Johnson ' s new messaging to "stay alert" has sparked a meme which looks very similar to the Nanda's peri sauce menu. The "Stay Alert, Control The Virus, Save Lives" messaging has not gone down well. The UK government's 'Stay Alert' slogan has become the latest coronavirus meme to

The UK government has now got another slogan for all of us to abide by to keep us safe from coronavirus.

Firstly we had 'stay home, stay safe, protect the NHS' which was relatively easy to understand and follow. Then we had 'stay alert, control the virus, protect lives' which was a bit less easy to understand.

Boris Johnson had briefly introduced 'prepare for the worst, hope for the best' which sounded like something from a Tom Cruise movie but that doesn't seem to have stuck around for very long.

Reese Witherspoon’s 2020 Challenge Meme Is Winning The Internet

  Reese Witherspoon’s 2020 Challenge Meme Is Winning The Internet Thanks largely to coronavirus and the twin pressures of social distancing and working from home, this year has been a real trial. Reese Witherspoon knows this – and she’s started the “2020 Challenge” to provide some light relief. The challenge is essentially a topical variation on the “Dolly Parton Challenge” that went viral earlier this year. But this time, celebrities aren’t sharing funny photos of themselves that are appropriate for LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.

Boris Johnson has unveiled the government’ s third attempt at a tripartite coronavirus slogan – for which he may have taken inspiration from Catalonia in No 10 has invested heavily in polling and focus groups to help it hone public messages, with the new slogan – which is already being rolled out

That is why Boris Johnson has delayed some of the planned lifting of restrictions in England and face masks will become a more frequent sight. The big question remains around schools. If the current rules are leading to an increase in cases, can we open schools as well?

Now we have a new slogan which is probably the Tories most cryptic to date. During his press conference on Friday where he updated the British public on rules about Covid-19, as cases continue to rise, Johnson said a new saying:

The only real utensil we have (in) controlling the spread of this new virus is human behaviour. The only way we can encourage people to behave in one way or the other is through advice.

And so you're totally right, we need to keep it as simple as we possibly can and that's why, to sum it up in a nutshell, is: hands, face, space.

Wash your hands, cover your face in the settings that we had mentioned and keep your distance from other people where you don't know them, you're coming into contact with them for the first time, and of course get a test and self-isolate if you have symptoms.

I hope that was pretty... you know, that was pretty punchy I think - hands, face, space, and get a test. I think everybody can more or less remember that.

Although it's a nice little rhyme which informs people to wash their hands, cover their face and keep a safe space from others as well as getting a test, judging by reactions on social media it could have been a little clearer and not so open to jokes.

LBC's James O'Brien probably had the most scathing take on the new slogan.

The government has warned that a second wave of coronavirus that is sweeping across Europe could reach the UK soon but experts have been critical of the Tories, claiming that they aren't doing enough to protect people and contain the outbreak. At the time of writing, parts of the UK have been placed back into lockdown due to a local rise in cases.
