Boris Johnson has tightened restrictions as the infection rate begins to surge higher by the day.

The Prime Minister was warned last week by Government physician Sir Patrick Vallance the UK could see 50,000 new coronavirus per day by mid-October.

Mr Johnson issued a statement that said: “We’ve reached a perilous turning point.

“No one underestimates the challenges the new measures will pose to many individuals and businesses, but we must take further action to control the resurgence in cases of the virus and protect the NHS.”
