A blow for London as leaders consider moving the city to tier 3 amid rising rates

According to the BBC Website:

Latest data show rising COVID 19 cases in London two weeks to Christmas prompting  MPs and officials to consider moving the capital to TIER 3 as early as today. l

Council leaders in London are understood to be alarmed at the projected rise in cases and some are pushing for a “tier three plus” regime with tougher restrictions than tier three on its own. There are those who feel that such a move will be catastrophic for a city that is reliant on the hospitality industry. But with cases rising every day, decisive many agree leaders must take decisive measures now.

Essex may also be moved up to tier three, which would mean that mixing with other households anywhere indoors is banned, people advised against travelling to other areas, and sports fans excluded from events.
