  • ITV News published this video item, entitled “Calls for lockdown grow as ‘one in 80 have Covid in England’ | ITV News” – below is their description.

    Pressure to impose a national lockdown in England is mounting as the number of coronavirus cases continues to climb and more than a dozen areas are due to move into a higher level of restrictions. The three-tier system is being called into doubt, with the NHS Test and Trace system recording its highest ever weekly number of positive cases and a study by Imperial College London finding that almost 100,000 people are catching Covid-19 every day. Experts are suggesting a more national approach is needed to address the soaring infection rate, and Home Secretary Priti Patel said the government would not rule anything out.
