Britain could have a second National Lockdown as the Covid Cases surge

 Britain is at a tipping point on COVID-19, health minister Matt Hancock said on Sunday, warning that a second national lockdown might be imposed if people don’t follow government rules designed to prevent the spread of the virus. COVID-19 cases have risen sharply in recent weeks to quite 4,000 per day. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called it a second wave and stricter lockdown measures are introduced in areas across the country – with London possibly next in line.

“The nation faces a tipping point and that we have a choice,” Hancock told Sky News. “The choice is either that everyone follows the principles … or we’ll need to take more measures.”

Hancock later told the BBC that a second national lockdown was possible option.COVID-19 cases have risen sharply in recent weeks to quite 4,000 per day.

Asked about comments from London mayor Sadiq Khan, who said on Friday new restrictions were increasingly likely within the capital, Hancock said: “I’ve had discussions in the week with the Mayor of London, and therefore the teams are meeting today to debate further what could be needed.”

Hancock was also asked on Times Radio about the likelihood of Londoners being told to figure from home later in the week , and said: “Well, I wouldn’t rule it out.”

The opposition Labour Party leader Keir Starmer said he would support whatever measures the govt brings forward, but criticised the government’s testing system for not having the capacity to affect increased demand as schools returned.
