The British government announced on the 26th that different levels of coronavirus prevention and control will be implemented in England after the end of the current large-scale “foot ban” measures, and the corresponding prevention and control measures will be implemented based on these levels.
The British government previously announced that the British region will implement a wide-scale “foot ban” from November 5 to December 2, requiring people to stay at home as much as possible except for special reasons such as going to school and purchasing necessities for life. After the end of the foot ban, England will implement the “enhanced” three-level coronavirus alert system, and the first to third levels correspond to the three epidemic alert levels of “medium”, “high” and “very high” and the corresponding prevention and control measures.
According to the latest epidemic situation, the government has set the next level for various places, and most areas are set at level 2 or above: London and Liverpool city areas will enter level 2; Bristol, Birmingham, Greater Manchestershire and other places will enter level 3.
The government also plans to regularly evaluate the epidemic situation in various places in order to adjust the prevention and control levels in different places in time according to the latest epidemic developments.
The UK Health Secretary Matthew Hancock said that places that are about to enter level 3 will face stricter prevention and control measures, which will be difficult times for the local people, but the government will help by implementing community virus testing and providing additional funds.
According to the data released by the British government on the 26th, there are 17,555 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country, with a total of 1,575,562 confirmed cases.
