Boris Johnson is ‘considering a national lockdown’ and closing non-essential shops.
Boris Johnson is said to be seriously considering a total national lockdown as coronavirus rates continue to surge in the UK. It is understood that he is ‘preparing to impose national lockdown restrictions’ from as early as Wednesday amid concerns hospitals across England are being overwhelmed.
Johnson met with the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, and Michael Gove, the Cabinet Office minister as well as Matt Hancock, the health secretary, to discuss NHS data yesterday. It is understood that he will hold a press conference on Monday to announce the new lockdown measures, which could mean non-essential shops could close.
Documents from the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) released on Friday showed Covid-19 was spreading significantly faster through England than the Government’s own predicted worst-case scenario for cases and hospital admissions.
