Victoria registers 15 COVID-19 cases, NSW Labor calls for mandatory masks,...

Liverpool Mayor Steve Rotherham said Sunday the government wants to put the strictest restrictions on his city and surrounding areas, adding that the measures that will apply there have not yet been agreed.

Sky News reported that this could mean bars, gyms, casinos and bookmakers will close. Rotherham said any announcement should include closed company funding.

Johnson, under pressure from parts of his Conservative Party over some COVID-19 measures, is reluctant to repeat a national lockdown that would further damage a weak economy, but has been urged by medical officials to act.

“Our main focus has always been on protecting life and livelihoods while at the same time controlling the spread of the virus. These measures will help achieve that goal, “a spokesman for Johnson’s Downing Street office said in a statement.

Johnson is expected to introduce a new system of “local COVID alert levels” of medium, high or very high levels to tailor the restrictions for different parts of England.

Downing Street wanted to emphasize that the new system had been extensively discussed with regional leaders.

On Monday, Johnson will hold a meeting of the government’s COBRA Emergency Committee and then speak in front of parliament to offer lawmakers a vote on the measures later in the week. He will also hold a press conference with England’s Chief Medical Officer and Treasury Secretary.
