Sunday is the first day that London has recorded the fourth most difficult level of restriction for the Coronavirus. It includes, among other things, a prohibition to leave the house without valid reasons. The streets, stations and squares of the British capital were deserted.

In London and the southeast of England, stricter restrictions apply from Saturday to Sunday from midnight onwards due to the spread of the new Coronavirus in the United Kingdom. It will remain in effect for at least two weeks with the first review of the status on December 30th.

British Health Secretary Matt Hancock suggested on Sunday that new, stricter restrictions to fight the pandemic will not be lifted soon. He said that it is very difficult to control the variant of the new Corona virus that has appeared.

Given how quickly this new species spreads, it will be very difficult to control until a vaccine is introduced. We really need to control this. We have a long way to go to solve this problem, Hancock told Sky News, we basically need to implement this vaccine to keep people safe.

What are the new restrictions?

The new restrictions assume that people are required to stay home except for important reasons such as work. Retail (except for stores selling essentials) and indoor entertainment has been suspended. All service points, including hairdressers and beauty salons, as well as gyms, are closed.

Only one person can meet people outside your family, or what is called the support bubble, and may be external meetings only. People are not permitted to enter or exit the area covered by Level IV.
