Does a London Lockdown Loom?

Does a London lockdown loom as borough Mayor advises people not to mix?

It appears that London is taking its first steps in the direction of a local lockdown similar to those currently being experienced in other regions of the UK.

Tower Hamlet’s borough Mayor, John Biggs, has published an open letter calling on the public not to visit other households “unless absolutely necessary”.

Every area within the capital has now been identified as an “area of concern” by the UK Government.

The advice comes as Tower Hamlets’ sees the rate of cases increase with Biggs labelling the situation a “matter of life and death”.

In his open letter he wrote, “Despite a fall over the summer, we are seeing cases of Covid-19 rise and we need to accept that the situation is once again worsening”

Nationwide, however, the UK surge appears to be waning with last week experiencing 8,400 new cases of Covid-19 every day, according to the Office for National Statistics, which is down 12 per cent on the 9,600 daily cases recorded in the previous week.
