Britain’s government Friday warned it could re-impose a national lockdown across England to counter the coronavirus pandemic, noting rates of hospitalisation are doubling every eight days.

“We want to avoid a national lockdown, but we’re prepared to do it if we need to,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock told BBC television.

“We’re prepared to do what it takes both to protect lives and to protect livelihoods,” he said, warning of more local measures to come after restrictions were placed on swathes of northeast England from Friday.

Britain has been the worst-hit country in Europe by the pandemic, with the government registering nearly 42,000 deaths from Covid-19. Numbers of new cases are reaching levels not seen since April.
