(Reuters) – UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said late on Thursday that the COVID-19 lockdown in parts of Northern England will be tightened, owing to an increasing rate of transmission in these areas.
“So from midnight tonight, people from different households will not be allowed to meet each other indoors in these areas”, Hancock said on Twitter.
The areas include Greater Manchester, parts of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire, he added.
