Coronavirus UK news – 9 MILLION in London on brink of Tier 3 lockdown as govt warned of SUPERSPREADER Christmas


LONDON is on the brink of a Tier 3 lockdown that could see nine million people slapped with tough new covid restrictions.

The capital could be plunged into Tier 3 within the next two weeks unless spiralling cases somehow reverse and the R-rate falls from the staggering 2.9 it is currently estimated to be.

Sources close to London Mayor Sadiq Khan say they expect the capital to be pushed into Tier 3, closing most bars, gyms, libraries and restaurants, within weeks if not days.

And there are fears the entire country could be placed into Tier 3 by Christmas, with worst hit areas in an even stricter Tier 4 lockdown, as government advisors warned of a ‘superspreader’ festive period.

Boris Johnson is under pressure to impose a nation-wide full-scale lockdown before Christmas in order to allow families to unite on the day.

The PM has been warned the current Tier 3 ‘very high risk’ restitutions and regional lockdown simply aren’t working to bring down infection numbers, hospitalisations and deaths.
