A new system of coronavirus restrictions for England is to be announced in Parliament — with infection rates soaring in many parts of the country.

It aims to end the patchwork of different rules by bringing in three levels of restrictions – depending on the danger posed by the virus in any particular area.

Parts of northern England, where cases of Covid-19 have been rising fastest, are expected to face tougher curbs which could include closing pubs, bars and restaurants.

  1. If anyone can explain what we are achieving with the lockdown meaures other than just spreading out the number of deaths over longer period of time, please do!

  2. People in my area are getting sick with covid-19. But no one I know has gotten sick and I know a few hundred people. But we have all been staying home except for going to work or picking up food. But things did ease up and I went to a large outdoor BBQ where we roasted a cafe and a deer. No one got sick.
