UK govt ‘hasn’t yet seen’ desirable impact from local lockdowns, but is considering new curbs in northern England

A recent analysis by the Guardian, however, found that coronavirus cases have doubled in the majority of English cities and towns that are subject to long-term local lockdowns. Scientists and local leaders said lockdowns are ineffective, because, among other things, the rules are unclear. The mayor of Middlesbrough, Andy Preston, said the measures were based on “factual inaccuracies and a monstrous and frightening lack of communication.”

Jenrick said, nevertheless, that “even tighter restrictions might now be being considered,” but he failed to confirm if a vote on the 10pm curfew would take place in Parliament next week.

Additional restrictions in the north of England may be similar to those announced in Scotland on Wednesday. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon ordered pubs in the two biggest cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh, to close, and restricted the operation of food and drink businesses in the rest of Scotland.

The government is also expected to announce a three-tier traffic light system of lockdown measures to prevent a continued rise in coronavirus cases.
