British government puts Manchester on high alert


Aregret the lack of understanding with the mayors and local leaders, the government britIan announced on Tuesday afternoon that, due to the increase in cases, he will put the Greater Manchester region at level 3 of restrictions, the highest level of restrictive measures implemented due to the pandemic of coronavirus, advances the BBC.

Greater Manchester level 3 restrictions will take effect as of 00:01 next Friday.

Boris Johnson stressed that “failing to act now” would put “at risk” the lives of Manchester residents. Prime Minister britIan added that he made a “generous” proposal for financial support for the region, but that it was rejected by Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham.

Burnham in turn, it disputes the idea that this was a generous offer of support. “At no time today have we been offered enough to protect the poorest people in our community,” said the mayor.

Andy Burnham and other local leaders had already said that without additional support of £ 65 million (around € 71 million), the implementation of more restrictive measures “would certainly increase the levels of poverty, hardship and homelessness numbers “.

Level 3 of restrictions implies the closure of pubs and cafes, prohibits people from different households from being together in enclosed spaces or outside, and gatherings are limited to a maximum of six people.
