POLITICALITE is live from the House of Commons as the Prime Minister announces the UK’s new ‘three tier system’ of restrictions to curb the spread of coronavirus in the UK before Christmas.
In late September the UK government introduced a series of measures in England, including a ban on social gatherings of more than six people, limiting opening hours for pubs and restaurants, and making face masks compulsory for bar staff and non-seated customers.
The measures were brought in to curb an increase in the COVID-19 infection rate. Since the beginning of the outbreak, the UK has recorded over 590,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 42,760 related deaths, according to data compiled by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
