Covid: New lockdowns for England and Scotland ahead of 'hardest weeks'

Covid: New lockdowns for England and Scotland ahead of 'hardest weeks'”

Scotland earlier issued a stay-at-home order and joined Wales in closing classrooms for most pupils. Darker areas represent higher infection rates. To prevent that, we need to act immediately and firmly, said Sturgeon.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said his MPs would "support the package of measures", saying "we've all got to pull together now to make this work".

She said: "It's just really important that everybody does what they to do in terms of complying with the lockdown".

"The lockdown announcement will help, but only if everyone follows the rules".

It indicates a risk of healthcare services being overwhelmed within 21 days without urgent action - it does not mean the NHS will be overwhelmed in three weeks, but there is a risk of that happening if no action was taken.

"What we have been waiting for is to see the impact of the Tier 4 measures on the virus and it is a bit unclear, still, at the moment".

Tesla's Shanghai-made Model Y has received an enthusiastic initial response from Chinese customers eager to place orders for the battery-powered SUV, after the carmaker priced it much lower than their expectations.However, buyers of the second locally-built Tesla model will have to wait until late February for deliveries to start, according to staff at a company showroom on Shibo Avenue in Pudong, Shanghai."The prices are so attractive that we can not resist", said Chen Zhiyi, a customer visiting the showroom, who plans to order a Model Y. Cases are rising nearly everywhere, in much of the country driven by the new more transmissible variant.

"Investigations conducted have revealed that the senior officer and junior members did not perform their duties according to police set standards and Government's Covid-19 [Chinese coronavirus] regulations in handling the illegal Mbare musical bash held by DJ Fantan and his associates on 31st December 2020", Nyathi said. But figures of confirmed cases and deaths have recently begun increasing significantly and the government last week reintroduced a nighttime curfew, banned public gatherings, closed beer taverns and indefinitely suspended the opening of schools.

They said: "Many parts of the health systems in the four nations are already under huge pressure".

And it means that, whereas the old Tier 3 was able to contain the old variant, that is proving increasingly hard in all parts of the country, he said.

The statement reads: "Following advice from the Joint Biosecurity Centre and in the light of the most recent data, the four UK Chief Medical Officers and NHS England Medical Director recommend that the UK Alert Level should move from Level 4 to Level 5".
