Coronavirus: New Wales and Northern Ireland measures as PM defends England strategy


With almost every area of Northern Ireland now seeing “hotspot” levels of Covid transmission, the nation’s political leaders have responded by announcing tighter restrictions, including closing all schools for two weeks from Monday (which does include the existing half-term break of course).

Other new measures will last four weeks and include the closure of bars and restaurants except for those offering takeaways, a ban on supermarkets and off-licences selling alcohol after 20:00, and the closure of hairdressers and beauty salons.
