The new measures being discussed could see restaurants and non-essentials stores close if the current Tier 3 rules do not bring the virus under control, reported by inews. Whitehall sources told the newspaper a decision could be made by mid-November after they gather enough data to see how the current system if performing. Boris Johnson has said repeatedly that he refuses to bring back another national lockdown as this would have huge effects on public mental health and our economy.
