With much of Europe back into National Lockdown, the UK Government is considering a 2nd National Lockdown for England throughout the month of November.
If latest reports in the media prove correct, the [English] public is expected to be asked to stay at home once more. But unlike the last lockdown, the prime minister will keep schools, colleges and universities open.
The hope is that the action would slow the spread of the disease and allow ministers to ease restrictions into Christmas.
The prime minister was expected to announce his plans on Monday, but Westminster may decide this weekend to bring forward announcements following a leak of the meeting between the PM and his three cabinet ministers on Friday night.
No 10 are furious that the details of national measures have been leaked to journalists and have launched an official inquiry today. This latest news comes after official documents from the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) revealed that Covid is spreading much faster in England than their predicted “worst case” scenario.
Boris Johnson will make an address on Monday.
Have your say. Do YOU think a 2nd lockdown is coming for Scotland? Will our Scottish 5 tier approach be enough to get the infection numbers down?
