Coronavirus (COVID-19)—England and Scotland enter national lockdown
The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and Scottish First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, have both announced that England and Scotland are entering national lockdown following rapid increases in coronavirus (COVID-19) infections. The steep rise in cases has been attributed to ‘the new variant’ of coronavirus, which government scientists believe to be between 50–70% more transmissible. While Scotland goes into national lockdown from Tuesday 5 January 2021, England will not until 00:01 on Wednesday 6 January 2021. Both lockdowns will forbid the public from leaving their homes unless for essential purposes, for example shopping for basic necessities, going to work (if you cannot do so from home) and exercise with your household or support bubble. Restrictions in England are expected to last until mid-February 2021, and in Scotland until the end of January 2021, but kept under review.

As transmissions remain high, with large numbers of coronavirus patients in hospitals and intensive care, the UK CMOs have voiced concerns over the NHS’s ability to handle a further rise in cases. Despite pressure on the NHS, the UK CMOs have urged people to come forward for emergency care if they require it.
