Although Covid infection rates are declining in Greater Manchester, the region has been subject to the most severe Level 3 restrictions.

The restrictions will be reviewed before December 16, the government said.

Today, the first doses of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine are expected to arrive in the UK – the first country in the world to give the vaccine the green light.

The country has ordered 40 million doses, which is enough to immunize 20 million people with two doses, 21 days apart.

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI), which advises ministers, has recommended that nursing home residents and staff be the top priority.
