‘Can’t have Christmas as planned’: BoJo tells London, Southeast & Peterborough to STAY HOME over rapid spread of new Covid strain

It is with a very heavy heart that I must tell you we cannot continue with Christmas as planned. In England, those living in Tier 4 areas should not mix with anyone outside their own household at Christmas, Johnson said in a televised press conference on Saturday.

The latest restrictions were made in response to a new variant of the coronavirus that reportedly spreads faster, though there is currently no indication that it is any more deadly or immune to vaccines.

Johnson claimed the new strain “may be up to 70 percent more transmissible than the old variant”, and that most cases of it have been recorded in those areas now under Tier 4 restrictions.
