Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has gone on record to say that it is looking increasingly likely that restrictions will be needed to be placed in London to stop the spread of the virus.
Lockdown restrictions could be placed on London: He said on the 18th September that he was extremely concerned by the latest figures for the capital and is of a “firm view” that actions need to be taken now to stop the virus from gaining momentum. His statement comes as Boris Johnson said that the country is highly likely to see a second wave soon.
It could be announced as early as Tuesday that a “circuit break” 2 week shutdown could be implemented across England and the announcement would come via a televised press conference. It could mean that pubs and restaurants would have to close down again or have a 10pm curfew placed on them and a ban on separate households and friends socialising.
The number of cases per 100,000 has increased in London this week from 18.8 to 25. Mr Khan said that “It is increasingly likely that, in London, additional measures will soon be required to slow the spread of the virus. We will be considering some of the measures which have already been imposed in other parts of the UK”.
