British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is all set to outline a new three-tiered virus lockdown system.
In the new alert system for Coronavirus cases in England, northwestern Liverpool is likely to be the only city placed in the top category. This means, its pubs and restaurants will have to be closed, a move that has not been approved yet by the local authorities.
Like other governments in Europe, Johnson’s Conservative cabinet is also seeking to bring down the rate of new infections amid rising concern about the economy and frustration among voters.
The new alert system that seeks to make an attempt to bring transparency and uniformity to restrictions introduced to combat the spread of the novel Coronavirus disease will classify all areas as either “medium”, “high” or “very high” risk.
