Lockdown extended in northwest England as COVID-19 cases remain high

Fri, 14th Aug 2020 13:36

LONDON, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Britain extended lockdown
restrictions on regions of northwest England on Friday, saying
there was no evidence that the COVID-19 infection rate in the
area had fallen.

"The latest evidence does not show a decrease in the number
of cases per 100,000 people in the area, and the Health
Secretary, in collaboration with local leaders, has agreed that
the rules must remain in place at present," a government
statement said.

The decision was taken following a two-week review of
restrictions imposed on Greater Manchester, parts of West
Yorkshire and East Lancashire, which prevent people from
different households meeting indoors.

Data will be reviewed again next week, the statement said.
