London and Essex to go to 'Tier 2'

Covid-19 alert system in England

They bring London into line with other parts of England already on tier 2 restrictions, while COVID-19 hotspot Manchester may be moved from tier 2 to the highest possible tier 3, or "very high" alert.

Speaking earlier at City Hall, London mayor Sadiq Khan had indicated the tougher measures were on the way because there is "simply no other option" as he warned of a hard winter ahead.

The tougher measures in Tier-2 impose a ban on mixing between different households, indoors in homes and pubs, bars and restaurants and the Tier 1 rule of six on gatherings outdoors continues to apply.

MPs in the capital have been told London will move to Tier 2 at midnight tomorrow, meaning households will be banned from mixing indoors - including in pubs - from Saturday.

Britain's health secretary has shifted London into the second-highest COVID-19 alert level amid a rise in cases.

Pope repeats call to divert funds from military to fighting hunger
Since the inception of the day, several themes have been chosen annually to bring attention to hunger and food and its effect on the lives of people worldwide.

The announcement was made to MPs from the capital by Faversham and Mid Kent MP and care minister Helen Whately. He later said that the coronavirus was spreading rapidly "in every corner" of the city.

Under new rules set out by Boris Johnson on Monday those in any of the city's boroughs, including Bromley and Bexley , can not meet in their homes or venues like pubs and restaurants unless they are part of the same "support bubble". The Liverpool City Region has been placed in the "Very High" level since Wednesday.

Meanwhile, according to The Guardian, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to sign off on the harshest tier 3 Coronavirus measures for millions more people in the north of England later today.

He said: "No one wants to see this, but it is necessary to protect Londoners", after warning cases would soon reach 100 per 100,000 people.

London residents will be banned from socializing or conducting activities with other households indoors regardless of setting.
