  • the prime minister is imposing a new coronavirus alert system on England to try to stop the virus spiraling out of control.

  • The three tier system will replace current local lockdowns and comes into force on Wednesday.

  • Most of England will be under Tier One restrictions places at medium level of risk in these areas.

  • Current national rules will continue the rule of six in the 10 p.m. curfew for pubs, bars and restaurants.

  • Next is tier two areas at high risk.

  • There'll be no household mixing indoors anywhere, but the rule of six still applies outdoors.

  • Tier two is for parts of the northwest, Yorkshire, the northeast, the Midlands, already under local lock down.

  • But today, the whole of Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire, parts of Cheshire and a small area of the peak district are among new areas put into Tier two restrictions.

  • The highest level is Tier three places at very high risk.

  • There'll be no mixing of households anywhere indoors or in private gardens.

  • Pubs and bars will be closed unless they serve what's been called a substantial meal.

  • Liverpool City region is the first to be placed under Tier three restrictions in the rest of the UK A decision will be made on new lock down measures in Wales in the next few days.

  • In Northern Ireland, health officials are calling for decisive action on in Scotland.

  • Nicola Sturgeon says she will draw up her own tiered framework towards the end of the month.

  • His, uh, political editor, Laura Ginsburg, stand by.

  • We cannot see clearly what is ahead.

  • But the prime minister is reluctantly marking the way to a tighter face, the lecterns back in their place.

  • Despite repeated rule changes, coronavirus is not in retreat.

  • The number of cases has gone up four times in four weeks, and it's once again spreading among the elderly on vulnerable.

  • These figures are flashing at us like dashboard warnings in a passenger jet, and we must act now.

  • We are today simplifying, standardizing and in some places toughening local rules in England by introducing three levels of coded alert.

  • Only the million and a half or so people in the Liverpool city region will be in the toughest category.

  • But in England, more than four million people face extra limits from this week.

  • No one wants to impose these kinds of, least of all me wants to impose these kinds of restrictions erosions of our personal liberty.

  • But I'm convinced, as I've ever bean, that the British people have the resolve to beat this virus and that together we will do just that.

  • So Liverpool's pubs will be shut by the time it's Sarah's actual birthday later this week.

  • The Motor said's wedding business hasn't had a job for six months, so she's taking on extra shifts as a nurse.

  • But like many, they're worried about paying the bills on protecting their family, too.

  • I worry about my kids as well, not being able toe, socialize and go out and see their family and friends.

  • So, yeah, it has a huge impact.

  • Where businesses were forced to close, the Treasury will pay some of the wages, but only two thirds from the starting next month.

  • Rebecca owns the bar on worries it's not enough.

  • A lot of our stuff they only dio 17 hours a week, so if they were only going to be getting paid 63% of that, they're not going to be able to afford to live.

  • But his cases rise.

  • Could we be stuck in a painful holding pattern?

  • Prime Minister you've said many times you want to avoid another national lock down, but it seems every week you introduce extra rules and cases still rise.

  • Are you just delaying the inevitable?

  • I really hope that we won't have to go into back into anything like her, a national lock down of the kind that we did in March and in April we could go for now for for a national lock down again.

  • I think many people would think that was extreme.

  • Andi.

  • It would do a great deal of extra harm.

  • Thio, our economy professor Witty, Are you confident what's being announced now is really enough to slow the spread of the disease?

  • I am not confident.

  • And nor is anybody confident that the Tier three proposals for the highest rates, if we did the absolute base case and nothing mawr would be enough to get on top of it.

  • And that is why there's a lot of flexibility.

  • No, exactly.

  • A ringing endorsement on Westminster wants local leaders to make some of the toughest calls here in the West Midlands.

  • Many are unhappy about how the government made its decisions.

  • The Tory leader cross that mixing with other households has been limited here.

  • I think it is very disappointing.

  • It's my view, not the right decision, both for the health and indeed the livelihoods of citizens across the West Midlands.

  • And quite simply, there's very, very little evidence that locations like this pass on the disease rules very still in Wales, in Northern Ireland.

  • But Scotland's already closed many pubs.

  • We will be looking toe Elaina's closely as possible with the other Yuki nations.

  • I think it is important, and it makes sense to try to do that.

  • Labor does back the approach, but not how the jobs being done.

  • I'm now deeply skeptical that the government has actually got a plan to get control of this virus, but it increasingly feels like the prime minister is several steps behind the curve.

  • The threat from this pandemic is sadly familiar, but the political climate so different rather than step confidently forward, this place feels riven with doubt.

  • Our political editor, Laura Ginsburg, joins us now, and that warning Laura from Professor Witty was notable that even the toughest measures may not be enough.

  • It really was Sophie, you know, Professor, what has become known for his candor speaking very plainly at these press conferences, but it was very striking.

  • Thio hear him say so boldly that even the toughest set of restrictions that the national government is willing to put forward at the moment won't be enough unless they are accompanied by a layer of extra restrictions decided on by local public health leaders around the country.

  • Less surprising.

  • That might be, however, when about a narrower.

  • After the press conference concluded the government's scientific committee, he and all the other experts that Boris Johnson consults published a set of recommendations that they agreed on the 21st off September that argued right then for a much more extensive national program of measures to be taken at that point, if there was to be a chance of slowing down the pandemic and really getting a handle on the disease now Downing Street tonight saying they've never pretended there are easy decisions here is a constant balance of dilemma between how not to hurt the economy and how not to hurt people's health.

  • But I think that publication from stage tonight really reminds us just how difference the opinions of how different the opinions can be on what really the right course of action is here.

  • Nor there are questions tonight as well over how much support the prime minister is actually getting on these new measures from regional leaders in northern England.

  • Well, that's right again.

  • It was interesting to hear the prime minister lavish praise on the leader of Liverpool city region, Steve Rotherham, a former Labor MP who's the mayor in that part of the country.

  • He's the only one so far who has Bean willing Thio agree with the government's new set of tough restrictions.

  • Except almost a soon as Boris Johnson had finished lavishing praise on him, he was out there online saying, Actually, the restrictions had Bean imposed on him rather than anything that had been agreed with the government.

  • Now let's face it, local mayors are politicians to There are, of course, agendas on all sides here.

  • But it's interesting today that we've seen Downing Street's try to sit shift some of the power some of the responsibility on to leaders around the country have been.

  • Tensions between the two all the way through this are now seven months into this pandemic.

  • It could be one of these shifting contours of this that changes our politics for good.

  • Laura.

  • Thank you.

  • Well, it is theory.

  • Liverpool City region that will have the toughest tier three restrictions imposed from Wednesday.

  • Our special correspondent, Ed Thomas, is there.
