Boris Johnson has warned that a second wave of the pandemic is coming, as the number of infections rises sharply.
More than three million people in England have been told they will face tighter restrictions. Merseyside, Lancashire and parts of the Midlands and West Yorkshire are to face the same tighter rules now in force in the north-east of England. The NHS Nightingale Hospital in Birmingham has been placed on high alert.
The Prime Minister says he doesn’t want another full scale national lockdown and he’s determined to keep schools and businesses open, but he says tighter restrictions right across England may be necessary.
There are now more than a thousand people in hospital with coronavirus across the UK. Serious problems are continuing with the testing and tracing system.
