Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Britain braced for T-Day: Boris will announce TODAY country's Tiers”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Boris Johnson will announce today which tiers the country will be placed in until Christmas with London and Liverpool hoping to avoid the toughest restrictions.

But almost nowhere will be afforded Tier 1 following a study published yesterday which found it 'clearly inadequate' last time around - only one area out of the 169 previously under these rules saw a fall in cases.

But there were increasing hopes that London will remain in Tier 2 owing to an overall fall in infections and crucially among the over 60s, as well as one of the lowest hospital admission rates for Covid in England.

Government sources said that 'at least one' of the cities which had been in Tier 3 would fall into Tier 2, with most indications pointing to Liverpool after a dramatic drop in infection rate from 162 per 100,000 compared with 700 five weeks ago.

The revised Tier 2 restrictions shut pubs unless they serve meals and order people not to meet other households indoors.
