  • a new system of coronavirus restrictions for England is due to be announced in Parliament tomorrow, with considerable debate within government on questions from those likely to be affected about how it will work.

  • It will involve three levels of restrictions, depending on the danger posed by the virus in a particular area will be exploring the political decision making in a moment.

  • But first to Liverpool, where significant new cubs are likely.

  • Our correspondent Dan Johnson, is they're done.

  • Yes, case numbers have been rising here and across other big cities in the North and into the Midlands, too.

  • So there's acceptance that further measures are needed on that that will be likely to result in further economic pain.

  • But this is not just about health versus wealth.

  • This is about culture enjoyment, about the amount of life we can actually continue living on.

  • On the table are pubs, clubs, the gyms, bookmakers and casinos here on the region's mayor told me tonight that he will not agree to those closures until there is the right support in place to look after the workers who will be affected.

  • Onda until he has a clear way out of these local locked down so that cities like this are not stuck in another locked down for month after month.

  • On the loudest, liveliest streets.

  • People worry about what's to come, and they want to be listened to to be understood.

  • All the things that are getting canceled, the things that he enjoys the same year Halloween, bonfire, night Christmas of these things that we're gonna have to compromise with.

  • If he did on it earlier, the things we would we have we could have got this far.

  • The only way you're gonna do it is total locked down.

  • Once you got top lock down, you've got it under control.

  • We're doing really well before Yeah, allow.

  • This happens.

  • But listen to Connor running a pub already quietened by local restrictions.

  • We're not even breaking even in the minute.

  • Never mind being able to pull back all the rent that we still owe are paybacks.

  • The wages that we talked up on a further restrictions was just just could be a fine on the ill in a lot of people's coffins, unfortunately, and I would say our sales are down 50%.

  • Jonathan's wondering whether restaurants will be hit by new tiers of rules.

  • Liverpool has known tough years and I've been here when when it's been tough.

  • But you know of the last 10 or 15 years, it's been a brilliant place today and it worries me that rug could be pulled considered to the challenge of enforcing even tougher restrictions.

  • This was Liverpool City Center last night.

  • There's frustration about how these rules are being introduced on this concern about how and when they're lifted.

  • Make no mistake that these measures probably equivalent to what happened back in March and we thought that would turn that corner, didn't we?

  • Are infection rates are still very high.

  • Do you think you'll be able to reach an agreement tomorrow?

  • I'm hoping that we can get it appeared that the government in good faith entered into these talks.

  • It's a real pity, then to find that some of the detail of them was leaked before we had a chance to sign things off.

  • It wasn't just Liverpool busy at 10 o'clock look at London's Leicester Square on in Peckham.

  • They were playing cricket.

  • Theo government denies it's unfairly targeting northern cities on There is nothing that we would ever do that penalizes one part of the country over another.

  • The Chancellor represents North Yorkshire.

  • I represent a North Nottinghamshire.

  • Neither of us would want to do anything that hurts the North or the Midlands more than any part of the country.

  • But it is right that we take a localized approach.

  • But after the K, if you came in, it was just came over.

  • But think about Joe still paying for the taxi that no longer covers his bills.

  • You don't know where you're gonna be in four weeks time.

  • I'm gonna be driving attacks.

  • You're gonna be working in a factory a lot, living on the door with no money closing time is coming from or businesses in this city famous for the musical sounds it sent around the world now waits with others to find out how much of life is about to be silenced.

  • Don Johnson, BBC News, Liverpool and our political correspondent Chris Mason is here in the studio.

  • This announcement tomorrow is going to be for England.

  • Chris, how much detail do you think we're going to get?

  • What tomorrow will mark the start of a distinct new phase in how the pandemic is managed in England as we've been reporting.

  • We will get the details of these three tiers.

  • The different regions of the country will be placed within after weeks of debates in private.

  • Don't expect it to be like, though Jeremy Vine on election night, dancing around on the map and different colors popping up for every region immediately.

  • It will take time, but we should get a sense of it relatively quickly.

  • Liverpool, as we've been reporting, will be in that highest alert level, but the debate is still continuing.

  • It's not certain it will be signed off on announced by tomorrow, and the talking continues in other regions to between other regions.

  • Andi at Whitehorse leaders in the north east of England, for instance, have a call booked in first thing tomorrow morning.

  • There's been intense debate and discussions around the thresholds between these different tiers, and the practicalities have potentially some places being asked to close others staying open.

  • I've been speaking to mayors and others today, and they have a a blizzard of questions.

  • They talk about the fraud and sometimes frosty discussion.

  • So, for instance, could pubs in some areas close, but restaurants stay open, one mayor was saying to me.

  • Ah yes, but could have pub claim to be a restaurant and then sell a bag of chips and six pints of lager.

  • So there's real practicalities here that have to be worked through.

  • On what about the support for regions two in the second and the highest tier?

  • Writing in the Telegraph tomorrow?

  • A.

  • Dan Jarvis is the mayor of the Sheffield City region as exactly that question.

  • So tomorrow will provide some answers.

  • But not all of them.

  • Chris Mason, Thank you very much.

  • Well, from that, let's bring you up to date on the latest government figures, which showed that there were 12,872 new coronavirus infections recorded in the latest 24 hour period.

  • That means the average number of new cases reported per day in the last week was 14,391.

  • 65 deaths were reported.

  • That's people who died within 28 days of a positive covert 19 test, which means, on average, 68 deaths per day in the past week on the total number of deaths across the UK is now 42,825 well within that overall picture.

  • There are significant differences in the prevalence of the virus and what hospitals are seeing, depending on where in the UK you are.

  • Our medical editor, Fergus Walsh, has been looking through the latest data.

  • There's a huge variation in Corona virus levels across the UK This'll heat map shows the areas in red with the highest levels on those in light blue, with the lowest on just look at the range.

  • Derry City and Straw Ban has 684 cases of coronavirus per 100,000 population.

  • Glasgow has 243.

  • Liverpool 600 Manchester has 525 coronavirus cases per 100,000 population Nottingham 761 Murtha Tydfil 214.

  • But North Norfolk has just 25 cases per 100,000 on Tor Ege in North Devon, only 18.

  • What matters is the impact this is having on the NHS in northwest England, the worst affected region.

  • There's been a big increase in co vid admissions in the past month, now averaging at around 150 patients per day, up by 60% in just a week.

  • But that's still below the peak in early April, when more than 400 patients a day were being admitted to hospitals in northwest England with Cove in 19.

  • The key question is how bad this will get.

  • Well, there are now Mork Co vid patients in hospital in England, as they were back on the day in March, that the national lock down was imposed.

  • Now things then quickly got out of hand and rose from 3000 patients to 17,000 patients in England in just three weeks, cases were doubling roughly every three days.

  • That's happening much slower now.

  • The outbreak doubling in size perhaps every 7 to 14 days in England.

  • But it varies considerably across the UK now.

  • Back in March, there was no testing being done in the community.

  • Now many cases are being picked up much earlier.

  • The worrying thing now is that winter isn't here yet.

  • The peak time for respiratory viruses, things like flu.

  • The NHS coped during the first wave by canceling non urgent surgery on cancer screening.

  • The aim this time is to continue with non co vid care, but that is dependent on how well coronavirus is kept in check for the next six months.

a new system of coronavirus restrictions for England is due to be announced in Parliament tomorrow, with considerable debate within government on questions from those likely to be affected about how it will work.
