London could be plunged into Tier 3 following a surge in cases

14th Dec 20 11:47 am

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has said on Monday that the capital could be plunged into the strict Teir 3 this week.

The capital has seen a surge in coronavirus cases and London leaders will not have any influence over the government’s decision.

Khan told Sky News, “My understanding is that Covid-O is meeting as we speak, that’s the sub-committee of the Cabinet that makes the recommendations.

“We will have to wait and see what the government decides, it’s a government decision, not my decision or London leaders’ decision.”

The Mayor added, “It’s possible” that Boris Johnson could make a decision today “because we have seen over the last few days a big increase in the virus.”

However, Khan warned that businesses would go bust as December is a “golden month” and a “golden quarter” and Tier 3 could be too much of a “blunt instrument.”

He said, “It’s worth looking where the virus is spreading faster and it’s worth looking at the areas where we have seen the biggest increase.

“It’s worth them asking themselves the question whether a move to Tier 3 is a blunt instrument that doesn’t really address in a laser-like fashion where we are seeing the biggest problems.”
