  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “England’s coronavirus lockdown may last until March says Gove” – below is their description.

    The third national lockdown imposed in England to try to deal with the huge increase in Covid-19 cases is likely to remain in place until March at least, with some measures lasting even longer, according to the Cabinet Office minister, Michael Gove.

    Gove said he hoped the gradual lifting of restrictions could begin in mid-February, but that the time it took for the vaccines to take effect meant it was likely to be at least another couple of weeks before measures could start to be eased
