Story by: Alex Clark The Telegraph

England is enduring a second national lockdown which will last until at least December 2, as the Government attempts to stop the surge in coronavirus cases and prevent the NHS becoming overwhelmed.

Covid-19 is known to have been contracted by 1,344,356 in the UK and 51,766 people have died from the virus. 

The country will continue with the three tier-system after December 2 unless the lockdown is extended, which cabinet member Michael Gove told Sky news was possible. 

Key restrictions in the lockdown include: 

  • The closure of all pubs, bars and restaurants, though takeaways and deliveries will be permitted
  • The closure of all non-essential retail. A ban on the mixing of households, except for support or childcare reasons
  • A restriction on travel, including outbound international travel (except for work). Travel within the UK is also discouraged.
