“The findings showcases were rising as the country entered a lockdown, but this was followed by a decrease as national measures successfully lowered infection rates across the country.
Earlier, to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic in England, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson set out new measures to replace a national lockdown on December 2.
“We’re not going to replace national measures with a free for all … We’re going to go back instead to a regional, tiered approach, applying the toughest measures where COVID is most prevalent,” Johnson told parliament.
