London will go back into coronavirus lockdown on midnight Friday, with household mixing banned

 Household mixing will be banned in London from midnight on Friday after Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government announced that rising levels of infections in the UK capital meant it must be moved into the "high" tier of COVID-19 restrictions.


Speaking in Parliament on Thursday morning, the UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said more localized restrictions were necessary in London and elsewhere to stop the "exponential" growth in infections.

"In London, infection rates are on a steep upward path, with the number of cases doubling every ten days," Hancock said.
