Scientists call on Boris Johnson for a full tier 4 lockdown with extra restrictions

Scientists are urging the  English government to place all areas of the country under Tier 4 to “save lives” and prevent the new variant of Covid-19 from spreading further after numerous more deaths revealed over Christmas

Dr. Zubadida Haque, a member of Independent Sage, said the advisory group of scientists were “very worried” about a rise in the number of coronavirus deaths and a number of patients in the hospital with the virus.

She shared a post in which the group called on the Government to implement Tier 4 in all areas of the country, effectively putting the UK into another nationwide lockdown.

Tier 4 means that non-essential shops, hairdressers, and leisure and entertainment venues must close and that you cannot mix with other households.
The group also said Tier 4 should include enhanced travel restrictions with immediate effect.
They tweeted yesterday on Boxing Day,

 Dr. Haque wrote: “Given that we surpassed 70,000 #COVID19 deaths in the UK on Christmas Day, and there are now more patients with coronavirus in hospital than at any point in the pandemic, why hasn’t the government implemented #tier4 restrictions everywhere in the UK?

“@IndependentSage are very worried”.

Close sources to Whitehall have revealed to Global247news how they expect the Prime Minister to follow the scientist’s advice and place each region of the UK into Tier 4 on December the 30th, the source revealed, ” It’s only a matter of time now until the whole of the UK goes full lockdown, the PM has listened to his scientists and advisors all over Christmas, the figures continue to rise despite extra regulations and the full lockdown is now imminent on Dec 30th”

” Take Cornwall and South Somerset as perfect examples, some of the previous safest regions in the UK – numbers continue to spiral despite raising the tiers, the health system can’t cope and there is no other option” he added.

“Unless there is a miracle the UK will go full lockdown on December 30th” he finished.
