Covid: Fresh Greater Manchester tier talks arranged

Covid: Fresh Greater Manchester tier talks arranged”

No 10 told the BBC it had "reached out" to arrange a call with the region's mayor, Andy Burnham, on Saturday.

New coronavirus restrictions have been enacted in England as more than 50 people tighten their social life.

More than half of England - in excess of 28 million people - is now under extra coronavirus restrictions, as areas have moved up the new three-tier alert system.

The new restrictions, which will be reviewed every fortnight, cover all parts of the county, including: Burnley, Blackburn with Darwen, Blackpool, Chorley, Fylde, Hyndburn, Lancaster, Pendle, Preston, Ribble Valley, Rossendale, South Ribble, West Lancashire and Wyre.

People will not be able to mix with others in any indoor setting or private garden, as well as in most outdoor hospitality venues.

Areas newly affected by Tier 2 rules are London, Essex, Elmbridge, Barrow-in-Furness, North East Derbyshire, Erewash, Chesterfield and York.

Speaking at a news conference on Downing Street, Boris Johnson described the city's coronavirus outbreak as a "grave".

Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said on Twitter: 'Liverpool City Region has demanded immediate clarification on why Lancashire gyms are allowed to stay open and Liverpool's close.

"In recent trends, there will be more Kavid patients in intensive care than just the peak of the first wave in just two weeks so I urge the mayor to reconsider and hire constructively".

"I feel like everyone doesn't know what's happening or they're just not taking it seriously enough at the minute". And the number of people in hospital has risen sharply since last week.

But the government's chief scientific adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, said Friday in the same briefing that "basic Level 3 measures" "are nearly certainly not sufficient" to reduce infection numbers.

The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police has vowed to police "without fear or favour" amid a political row between Downing Street and local leaders over tougher coronavirus measures.

"From a purely epidemiological point of view, it is important to go quite fast on this, it's important to make sure that you go hard enough to get the R below 1 and the sooner you do that, the sooner you get this under control".

In Liverpool, Level 3 restrictions have been in place since Monday, but after yesterday's announcement that Lancashire would join them at a "very high" risk level, there were accusations of contradictions between the two regions.

In a joint statement, Regional Mayor Steve Roderham and six other local leaders added: "We will not allow our region to behave differently in the other three tiers without strong scientific evidence".

According to the latest data from the United Kingdom government's Emergency Scientific Advisory Group (SAGE) No. p Coronavirus prevalence - increased from 1.2 to 1.5 to 1.3 to 1.5 on average.

Gyms and leisure centres in Liverpool, Wirral, St Helens, Sefton, Knowsley and Halton were ordered to close from Wednesday as the area was placed in Tier 3 and classed as "very high" risk.

A total of 5,311 patients are now being treated for the virus in England, with 644 more admitted to Covid-19 hospital on Friday.
