On March 30, it was announced that Cummings, considered the “architect” of the Brexit strategy, had started to develop symptoms related to the new coronavirus and that he was confined, alone, in his residence.
A Durham police spokesman confirmed in a statement that, on 31 December, the officers were reportedly informed that “an individual had traveled from London to Durham and was at an address in that city”.
On the same note, the police revealed that when they contacted the property at the time, they confirmed that the subject in question was there and self-isolated in a part of that house.
The new controversy was known the day after the British government on Friday announced the imposition of a 14-day quarantine on travelers arriving in the country on 8 June to try to prevent further outbreaks.
Breach of the quarantine is punished in England with a fine of 1,000 pounds, or 1,120 euros.
