COVID-19 Alert Level Raised

Today the PM will address Parliament and broadcast to the nation where he will set out the further measures we will take to tackle coronavirus.

  • The coronavirus alert level has moved from Level 3 to Level 4 after the data showed the number of cases was rising rapidly. As the Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Adviser said, we are at a critical point in the pandemic. 
  • To tackle the spread of coronavirus, the Prime Minister has announced that all pubs, bars, restaurants and other hospitality in England will be required to close by 10pm from this Thursday. The hospitality sector will also be restricted by law to table service only. 
  • Cabinet will meet this morning ahead of the Prime Minister setting out the changes in a statement to Parliament. He will also bring together the COBR committee with Cabinet Ministers and First Ministers to discuss the surge in cases. 
  • No-one underestimates the challenges the new measures will pose to many individuals and businesses. We know this won’t be easy, but we must take further action to control the resurgence in cases of the virus and protect the NHS.
