With 15,000 new infection each day Britain returns to zoned lockdowns

Over the past week, the United Kingdom reported around 15 000 positive tests every day. That is much more than in early October and mid-september, when less than ten thousand people per day tested positive.

The UK Government therefore introduced three levels of risk this week: average, high and very high. According to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the bulk of the country was still below the mildest level of risk.

In regions with a higher level of risk, regional authorities may announce lockdowns. These can be accompanied by the closure of, for example, bars, pubs, casinos and gyms. According to Johnson, a first strict quarantine in the city of Liverpool could be declared.
