British PM to outline new virus lockdown system

British PM to outline new virus lockdown system”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday imposed a tiered system of further restrictions on parts of England including closing some pubs as the COVID-19 outbreak accelerates, though anger is rising at the cost of the curtailment of freedoms.

Northern England has been particularly hard hit by a new surge in coronavirus cases that has forced local lockdowns as students returned to schools and universities across Britain.

Liverpool, birthplace of the Beatles and famed for its soccer team, the current Premier League champions, and its surrounding region will be the first to be placed in the highest alert tier, meaning its drinking establishments face closure from Wednesday.

The mayor of Liverpool, Steve Rotherham, was quoted by the BBC as saying that "no agreement has yet been reached on this point and negotiations are going on".

Johnson's announcement is set to come as record cases across Europe prompt renewed restrictions on a lockdown-weary public.

Johnson is set to present the system in parliament on Monday afternoon and MPs will be called to vote on the measures later in the week, a source in his office said.

South Yorkshire is to be moved into the "high" category of a Covid-19 restrictions scale, the prime minister has announced.

"If we told our fishermen that we had drastically reduced their access to British waters - on which they depend for their economic survival - they would say that is indecent and they would be right".

After weeks in which tests were often unavailable across much of the country, Jenrick said local leaders would be more involved in contact tracing.

Grant Shapps, however, said: "As the transition period comes to an end, we are putting the necessary measures in place to safeguard the smooth and successful flow of freight".

It was not immediately clear how the government would define pubs, given that many of them serve food and act as restaurants.

In Bangor, north Wales, new coronavirus restrictions were introduced at 6pm on Saturday, barring people from entering or leaving the area without a "reasonable excuse" and only allowing meetings with people from other households if they take place outdoors.

"We want and we wish for a deal and this deal must include fishing".
