England returns to lockdown

England is to begin a new coronavirus lockdown from midnight today, with everyone remaining at home except for permitted reasons, the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has announced.

In a televised address from Downing Street, the Prime Minister said those in the top four priority groups would receive a first vaccine dose by mid-February noting that all the new measures will last until at least the middle of next month and that the weeks ahead would be the “hardest yet”.

Boris Johnson added that he believed the country was entering “the last phase of the struggle”.

The UK recorded over 50,000 new confirmed COVID cases on Monday, making the seventh day in a row.
