Meanwhile, the Prime Minister will announce a new three-tier system of local lockdown measures for England to curb rising Kovid-19 rates.
Under the new system, different parts of the country will be divided into “medium”, “high” or “very high” local corona virus alert areas. Boris Johnson is expected to make the announcement on Monday.
The situation comes after the prime minister held a telephone conference with cabinet colleagues on Sunday, holding talks with local leaders in the north of England.
There are reports that third-tier areas where houses converge inside or outside the home may face a ban, as well as other restrictions such as not staying overnight.
