British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has pledged to allocate two billion pounds ($ 2.6 billion) to spend on projects to encourage walking and cycling in his country.

Johnson's move comes as part of a drive to improve public health in the country and encourage abandonment of driving in coronary conditions.

Last Monday, the British Prime Minister urged his citizens to pay more attention to their physical fitness, in conjunction with his government's announcement of plans to ban TV and online commercials for fast foods, before nine in the evening.

The British government aims to reduce the rates of asylum to public health agencies, which will have to deal with any increase in cases of coronavirus infection during the winter, in addition to the stresses caused by seasonal diseases such as influenza.

Johnson said that "biking and walking will play a big role in dealing with some of the biggest health and environmental challenges we face", all in an effort to "help people to become more fit and healthy, to reduce their risk of disease, to improve air quality and reduce overcrowding", like he said.

New British plans in this area include "building thousands of miles of protected bicycle routes, setting higher standards for cycling infrastructure, setting up at least a city-center free of emissions, and facilitating access to electric bicycles".
