US, WASHINGTON (NEWS OBSERVATORY) — The rapid spread of coronavirus around the world has also caused panic among those who appear to be more protected than the common people, politicians.
Under such pressure seems to be British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who has to take care of this emergency as well as the final date of the July 1 Brexit process.
Britain is now in a transitional position with the EU by the end of this year. The purpose of this transition is to keep relations between Britain and the EU stable.
At the moment both countries are in the process of negotiating to decide whether there will be further co-operation in the future.
Johnson is, of course, already in a very embarrassing situation because, prior to the situation with COVID-19, he insisted on leaving the EU and that nothing could stop him from meeting his deadline.
But with the advent of coronavirus, Boris Johnson is forced to postpone it.
“No matter how politically difficult, the impact of coronavirus will hit deeper than our country’s health. It will hit the economy. Implementing the Brexit deadline with this situation would be irresponsible,” said opposition MPs.
