THE Prime Minister is about to make an announcement today outlining what could effectively be a ‘lockdown two’.
Boris Johnson will discuss the new restrictions and outline a ‘tiered’ approach to how local Covid situations will be handled amid a spike in infections in the north of England.
Hotspots placed in “Tier 3” could possibly face further severe measures for six months.
This follows an outbreak of infection and transmission in parts of the UK, with 12,872 more cases recorded on Sunday alone.
The increase in cases could be due to an increase in testing.
