The UK is about to enter a new phase in the coronavirus pandemic, with three tiers of lockdown measures introduced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson during Monday night’s press conference. Depending on the area and the number of coronavirus cases, measures could range from a not so restrictive Tier 1 to the strictest Tier 3 rules.

Areas will see their Tiers increase, or decrease, dependent on the infection rate and the number of cases being recorded.

One area at risk of seeing the Tier increase before it has even been implemented is London.

At the time of writing London was due to be at Tier 1 come Wednesday, meaning no new restrictions would be brought in for the capital.

Instead, the nationwide measures of Rule of Six and 10pm curfews on bars, pubs and restaurants will remain in place.

However, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has said it is inevitable the capital will pass a “trigger point” to enter the higher Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions in the “next few days”.

He told Sky News: “Across our city… the average over the last seven days is about 90 per 100,000.

“All the indicators I have, hospital admissions, ICU occupancy, the numbers of older people with cases, the prevalence of the disease, the positivity are all going the wrong direction.

“Which means, I’m afraid, it’s inevitable over the course of the next few days London will have passed a trigger point to be in the second tier.”

Support bubble guidance would remain the same, and you could meet in groups of six as long as it is outside and socially distanced.

In total since the pandemic began, London has recorded 62,340 cases, out of a population of approximately 9.2million.

The rate of infection in London per 100,000 of the population is 695.6.

Figures released by Public Health England showed Brent has recorded 2,781 confirmed COVID-19 cases as of today, while Barnet has had 2,971.

Mr Khan has said in recent weeks London has seen a “sharp” increase in calls to non-emergency NHS number 111, while hospital admissions have increased.
