Coronavirus LIVE as Sheffield heads towards local lockdown

Written by on 09/10/2020

Sheffield looks set to be the latest area of Yorkshire to be placed in local lockdown as the fight against the spread of coronavirus continues.

The city has the highest rate of Covid-19 infection in the county.

And politicians have said it is now unavoidable for the city to escape lockdown measures.

Infection rates in all other parts of Yorkshire have also increased and the suggestions are growing stronger that extreme lockdown measures such as shutting pubs and banning people to sleep over will be brought in for at least some parts of the country.

The new strict rules could be brought in as early as next week with sources saying that Sheffield will be addressed as early as Monday.
