North East England lockdown: Areas at risk of lockdown as cases rise by 344 percent | UK | News (Reports)


Latest Public Health England data, published on August 31, shows a total of 16,135 people have tested positive for the virus in the North-East (excluding North Yorkshire) since the outbreak began.

Also in the North of England, Leeds residents have been warned there will be “no alternative” to further lockdown restrictions if coronavirus infection rates continue to rise.

The city is expected to be added to Public Health England’s weekly watch list of areas of concern, after a rise in cases over the previous weeks.

The city council has said while being on the list would not mean further restrictions would be brought in at this stage, it would mean increased monitoring of cases and could see additional steps taken in the future.
