British capital London will be entering a tougher lockdown regime from Midnight Friday, and will be advised against using public transport if possible, among other restrictions.
Over ten million people across London and the adjacent county of Essex will wake up under a ‘high alert’ lockdown on Saturday morning, as the government orders the capital to take extra measures against coronavirus.
The new restrictions mean beyond the current rules, including groups of more than six people being banned from meeting and a 10 pm curfew on pubs and restaurants, Londoners will now not be able to mix with other households anywhere indoors and will be advised against going on public transport except when absolutely necessary.

Sky News reported the remarks of London mayor Sadiq Khan as he discussed the new tighter lockdown for the city, when he said that the level had changed because corona is “spreading rapidly in every corner” of the city, and because of that it has been “deemed necessary”. The Labour mayor also took the chance to attack the government on what he called a “complete failure to get a working test, trace and isolate system in place”.
The change is one step down from the new highest coronavirus alert level set by the government, which is pursuing a policy of local lockdowns rather than again plunging the whole nation into a deeply damaging shutdown. At tier three — called ‘very high’ alert’, bars and pubs must close except for serving meals, mixing even outside is banned, and travelling from your local area to other parts of the country is discouraged.
