    Nov.26 — U.K. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the government will review England’s tiered system for regional coronavirus restrictions every 14 days, based on infection rates and local pressures on the National Health Service. London will be placed in tier 2 and thus avoid the toughest curbs when the national lockdown ends next week, the government announced. The three-tier system is tougher than before because ministers want to make sure they get a grip of the virus before people are allowed a five-day relaxation of the rules during the Christmas holidays.
