British PM says ‘duty’ to protect UK from second virus wave

LONDON — British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says it is the government’s “duty” to protect the U.K. from a second coronavirus spike as he defended the decision to recommend against all but essential travel to Spain.

British PM Boris Johnson talks to the owner of the the Cycle Lounge, Rodney Rouse, a bicycle repair shop Beeston near Nottingham, England, Tuesday, July 28, 2020. The UK government is launching a new cycling intuitive to help get people fitter.

He says the government must “take swift and decisive action” where it thinks risks are “starting to bubble up again.”

He adds: “Let’s be absolutely clear about what’s happening in Europe, amongst some of our European friends, I’m afraid you are starting to see in some places the signs of a second wave of the pandemic.”

The decision to toughen the travel advice for Spain has prompted widespread dismay among some British. Spain is traditionally the most popular summer holiday destination.
