Guardian News published this video item, entitled “‘We’re sticking with our plan’: Boris Johnson on rising Covid-19 cases” – below is their description.

The prime minister says in an interview in Northern Ireland that there is no need to change the government approach to Covid, as the rising case numbers are ‘within the parameters of what the predictions were’. Calls to move to a ‘plan B’, which reintroduces some restrictions to limit the spread of the virus, have grown louder

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
