UK’s Covid-19 alert level reduced from four to three

U

The UK’s coronavirus alert level has been downgraded from four to three, its chief medical officers have said.

Under level three, the virus is considered to be “in general circulation” and there could be a “gradual relaxation of restrictions”.

Previously transmission was considered to be “high or rising exponentially”.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the change was “a big moment for the country” and showed that the government’s plan was working.

The decision to reduce the alert level followed a recommendation by the Joint Biosecurity Centre, the chief medical officers for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland said.

People to be allowed to travel anywhere in their county (Ireland) from Monday

P

People are to be allowed to travel anywhere within their county from Monday next as the Government moves to implement a dramatic escalation of the roadmap to reopen Ireland.

The Cabinet met on Friday to give the green light to moving to phase two of easing coronavirus restrictions but also considered accelerating entire phases of the existing plan.

An increase in the travel limit from 5km to 20km was due to come into effect on Monday but now under revised restrictions people will also be allowed to travel anywhere within their own county, even if that is more than 20km from their home.

Hotels and B&Bs are also set to re-open at the end of the month under the acceleration discussed by Cabinet and the reduction of the two-meter social distancing rule these businesses is being considered.

The Government is also considering the possibility that some pubs will open earlier than planned and the total lifting of travel restrictions earlier than planned is also being discussed.
