Lockdown rules could become tougher, admits Boris Johnson
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned lockdown measures could become tougher.
As the number of cases soar unabated, the PM said he was “fully reconciled to do things in the next few weeks that will be tougher”.
He told the Andrew Marr Show on BBC:
“It may be that we need to do things in the next few weeks that will be tougher in … many parts of the country … I’m fully reconciled to that.
“My bet [is that] the people of this country are reconciled to that.”
Asked what “tougher” might mean, Johnson said:
“You’ve spoken about Tier 5, I haven’t said that but there are obviously a range of … tougher measures that we would have to consider.”
Most of Britain is already under Tier 4 lockdown measures.
