The measures were brought in to curb an increase in the COVID-19 infection rate. Since the beginning of the outbreak, the UK has recorded over 590,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 42,760 related deaths, according to data compiled by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.​

At the other end of the spectrum, Tier One would be for areas with fewer than 100 Covid-19 cases per 100,000 people and only the ‘minimum restrictions’ would apply.

The new set of restrictions will reportedly be implemented from Wednesday and last at least four weeks before being reviewed.
