UK is preparing for new pandemic-induced restrictions

The number of COVID-19 infections is rising in the UK

COVID-19 cases keep on growing, and countries are bound to take measures to stop the spike.

The British government is set to introduce new restrictions as of today, with the country now working under a "three-tier" system, dividing the country into three categories based on the severity of the infection rate.

Cities as Liverpool and Manchester, and most of the country's northern part, will undergo the strictest measures. The media reports that pubs, restaurants, and gyms have been the epicenters of infections.

The current restrictions limit gatherings to six people, while pubs and restaurants have to close at 10 PM.

More about the matter will be reported by the country's prime minister Boris Johnson, in a televised statement.
