Local lockdown: All the areas with spikes in Covid-19 cases

A ‘local lockdown’ has been imposed on Leicester as part of the government’s strategy to stop unmanageable flare-ups of the coronavirus.

The tighter restrictions will potentially see some shops closing and schools shut to most children.

These restrictions could be imposed on other parts of the country if similar spikes occur, the Liverpool Echo has reported.

A regional rise in cases could result in localised lockdowns, the health secretary Matt Hancock said last month.

According to The Mirror, new confirmed cases have been rising across 36 of the 151 upper-tier local authorities in England.

The current method used to control the virus focuses on closing down businesses and schools, alongside contact tracing those affected.

And Prime Minister Boris Johnson has described the targeted move as a “whack-a-mole” strategy.

But it remains unclear how a lockdown in a particular town or city could actually work in practice.
