England Enters Third Lockdown As Virus Rages

Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister has announced new strict national lockdown on Monday

as Britain’s desperate race to vaccinate its population risked being overtaken by

a fast-spreading variant of the coronavirus that was on track to overwhelm the nation’s hospitals.

After several days of frighteningly high and escalating case numbers,

, Mr. Johnson ordered schools and colleges in England to close their doors

and shift to remote learning. He appealed to Britons to stay at home for all

but a few necessary purposes, including essential work and buying food and medicine.

The nationwide restrictions, officials warned, will remain in place until at least the middle of February.
