Trump commented on a news tweet that areas currently at Level 3 in South East England, including London, will enter Level 4 from tomorrow morning.
He explained that Level 4 “will be broadly equivalent” to the November lockdown.
However, Trump’s tweet read, “We don’t want a lockdown.
“The cure cannot be worse than the problem itself! ”
Boris Johnson was surprised to announce that large parts of the east and south-east of England, including London, would be subject to Level 4 restrictions.
Level 4 – which is the highest possible level in England – effectively brings residents back to the rules in place during the nationwide lockdown.
Mr Johnson told a Downing Street press conference on Saturday at 4 p.m. that the rules would go into effect at midnight.
Passengers had to contend with crowded wagons outside London as many tried to flee the capital after tighter coronavirus restrictions were announced.
Travelers were told that social distancing “will not be possible” due to the sheer number of people on board, and those who feel “uncomfortable” should not stay on the train.
At 7 p.m. on Saturday night, no trains were available online from several London stations, including Paddington, Kings Cross and Euston.
Images online showed large crowds at St Pancras station waiting to board trains for Leeds.
Harriet Clugston said people on the trains tried to reserve space for themselves, but there was not enough room to do so.
“As expected, the train is packed,” she wrote on Twitter.
“The ad on Tannoy says social distancing ‘won’t be possible’ because of the volume and going down if you’re not comfortable with it.
“People have tried to secure social distancing by placing seats, but they were asked to remove them by other passengers because the train is so full. ”
Another woman, who declined to be named, said she and her partner had made the “shared decision” to take their young son to his parents on the coast.
“We just made the decision to leave based on the fact that my parents had said to come, and we couldn’t bear the thought of not having fresh air and a toddler coming over. was walking in a small apartment for the foreseeable, ”she told the new Palestinian Authority agency. .
“We also really felt like we wanted to bring the baby somewhere a bit safer with a garden, although we know a lot of people won’t have that luxury.
She added: “The grandparents are desperately happy to see their grandson.
“We’re obviously afraid of taking something away from them, but they seem happy to take the risk. ”
Izzy, 22, from Bristol, said she wanted ‘the safety of being home for Christmas’ and her parents came to pick her up before the restrictions came into effect.
“I have a slight nervousness that they are blocking the roads or that something is preventing me from going home,” she said.
“I’m moving out of my apartment so I need my dad to come and get me and he feels more comfortable doing it before level 4 kicks in.”
