  Brexit's next casualty could be clear time zones The EU is on track to abolish Daylight Saving Time. The UK will have to decide if it wants to do the same.It’s an annual event, but this year’s changes might be the last before things start to get really complicated. That’s because the European Parliament last year voted heavily in favor of ending Daylight Saving Time, meaning the bloc will no longer change the clocks twice a year starting in 2021. Each member state will get to decide whether to permanently set their clocks to BST or Greenwich Mean Time.

The deterioration in the state of health of Boris Johnson, "stable" Tuesday after being admitted to intensive care, causes a shock Tuesday in the United Kingdom, where the Covid-19 pandemic continues to s aggravate with more than 6,000 deaths.

The hospitalization of the bubbling 55-year-old conservative leader, diagnosed positive for the new coronavirus on March 27, affected the country, one of the hardest hit in Europe.

More than 786 deaths have been recorded there in 24 hours, including a victim of 23 years without medical history, a new record bringing the toll to 6.159 deaths, according to the last assessment published on Tuesday. Over 55,000 people have been officially infected.

Officers called to the station approached Dinou and attempted to explain the reasons behind government rules behind essential travel during the pandemic. However, Dinou refused to speak to offers despite their encouragement for her to leave and she was subsequently arrested on suspicion of travel fraud and breaching the restrictions imposed under the new Coronavirus Act 2020.

After two nights in the hospital, Boris Johnson "receives standard oxygen treatment and breathes without any assistance. He did not need mechanical ventilation or help noninvasive breathing, "said his spokesman on Tuesday.

The leader remained in a "stable" state overnight and "he keeps his spirits", he added.

The only head of state or government of a great power to have been infected, Boris Johnson is replaced by his Minister for Foreign Affairs Dominic Raab, 46 years old.

The latter will have to take the lead in the fight against the epidemic while the authorities predict a peak in a few days and that a decision on an extension of the confinement, with cataclysmic social and economic social consequences, must be taken in all next days.

Queen's support

Until his hospitalization on Sunday, Boris Johnson had tried to continue to run from his apartment in Downing Street, where he was in quarantine. His condition deteriorating, he was transferred Monday evening to the intensive care unit of St Thomas Hospital, just opposite the Parliament of Westminster, in central London.

While the former mayor of London does not a priori suffer from any other pathology other than weight problems, his state of health causes great concern in the United Kingdom.

Queen Elisabeth II sent a message to her pregnant fiancee Carrie Symonds and her family, wishing Boris Johnson a "total and rapid" recovery. The 93-year-old sovereign, retired to Windsor Castle near London, is kept informed of her Prime Minister's state of health, according to Buckingham Palace.

"It's shocking, it shows that it can affect anyone," said Mark Gillis, a Londoner interviewed by AFP. "It is an awareness for those who did not take the situation seriously."

The government, after procrastinating, decreed a general confinement on March 23 but allows exits, to exercise in particular. The parks in London remain open, sometimes finding themselves very crowded during this spring period, raising fears of a worsening of the trend.

Questions about the exit

Triumphant in the December legislative elections with the promise to implement Brexit, Boris Johnson was criticized in this unprecedented crisis for having delayed taking the measure, reluctant for a long time to adopt containment measures. He himself taunted the virus in early March, boasting of having "shaken hands with everyone", including Covid-19 patients during a hospital visit.

Now sick in turn, he has received messages of support from around the world, from the prayers of Donald Trump to the wishes of Vladimir Putin, who said he was "certain" that "the energy, optimism and sense of the "humor" of the British leader would help him recover.

Provisionally at the head of the government, Dominic Raab is committed to continuing the fight against the coronavirus. He chaired Tuesday morning the daily emergency meeting of ministers, the head of health services and the main scientific adviser.

The government must decide in the coming days whether or not to maintain the containment, originally decided for three weeks. Pressure is also mounting on the authorities to draw up a strategy for ending the crisis, although they insist that it will be necessary to wait until the peak has passed.
