  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Covid pitting nation against nation in UK” – below is their description.

    Politicians across the country are arguing over the extent and severity of any new coronavirus rules. At Prime Minister’s Questions, Boris Johnson said putting more areas in the north of England into the very high tier of restrictions would avoid the “misery of another national lockdown”. But Greater Manchester’s Mayor said those plans are fundamentally flawed. Meanwhile, Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer said a tougher national circuit break for England was now the only solution. In the last 24 hours, there have been 19,724 new cases of Covid diagnosed in the UK and 137 deaths confirmed in that time. The total number of deaths so far from Covid is 43,155. We spoke to Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford, Conservative MP for Bolton West Chris Green, and SAGE scientist Professor Graham Medley. ———————– Follow us on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/Channel4News
