Leicester expected to stay in lockdown for extra two weeks – UK COVID-19 update

The government has recommended that Leicester’s lockdown be extended for an extra two weeks, with the health secretary expected to make a statement confirming the city’s fate.

Sir Peter Soulsby, the Mayor of Leicester, said there is “no evidence” to show that it would make a difference.

More than 800 Leicester residents have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks.
