London to pay price for 12 days of freedom - Courier Mail

Londoners will pay the price for 12 days of freedom, having been moved to tougher restrictions from Wednesday.

Londoners will pay the price for 12 days of relative freedom by moving into tier 3 restrictions following a surge in COVID-19 cases.

England left a national lockdown on December 2 to move to a new set of regional tiered restrictions, however the capital has been moved back under harsh measures after less than two weeks following a surge in cases. 

On Monday it was announced London as well as parts of Essex and Herefordshire would enter tier three restrictions that will see restaurants and bars have to close the week before Christmas. Mayor Sadiq Khan is also calling for schools to close early following a rise in cases among 10-19 year olds. 

It comes after pictures showed central London's streets crowded with shoppers, raising fears that cases seeded over the Christmas period could fuel a new third wave of the virus in early 2021. 

Meanwhile, the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc in Europe with Germany entering a new lockdown. A man dressed up as Santa Claus has also been found to be behind a worrying outbreak in Belgium.

There are now 75 cases linked to the Hemelrijck aged care home in the Belgian town of Mol just a week after the "superspreader" Santa attended to spread some Christmas cheer.

The man, dressed as St Nicholas, attended the home last weekend and visited a number of communal areas, going on to infect 14 staff members and 61 residents less than a week later.

The mayor of Mol Wim Caeyers told Belgian news site VRT Newsit was a "very dark day for the care home".
