COVID-19: Leicester could be locked down amid 'spike' in coronavirus cases



The government has confirmed that Leicester could be the first city to go into a local lockdown over reports of a spike in COVID-19 cases.

The city is deploying additional mobile testing units in a bid to contain the virus, but some say the test results are not being provided quickly enough.

The Mayor of Leicester said there is ‘no guidance’ for how a local lockdown would work.

  1. The best thing would be a total extinction event. Then start over in a couple of millennia.

  2. Isn't it a big similarity with the higher rates in certain cities…….no need for me to spell it out, but I will HYGIENE, differences among ethnicity?

  4. It is the curse of the Carpark King, should not have pissed him off by keeping his remains where he does not want them to be. 😀

  5. This is just ridiculous – it means the government can close any area of the country at a moment's notice. In 2017-18 there were 50,000 excess deaths due to the flu!! Why have we completed shut down for 43,995 deaths this year! We have a population of 67,886,011. Total 516,000 deaths worldwide in world population of 7.8 billion. Only 0.01% of whole population has died. We have not have a first wave & they are already talking about the 2nd wave – this will happen as flu season starts in October – total lockdown will then happen again!

  6. I Repeat the sudden spike has nothing at all to do with the 4 thousand BLM protesters there 2 weeks ago!

  7. I think people have to do same whats blm does. But put angry into goverment. Not just Leicester whole country. Government is useless and no working for people. Time take everything in our hands. We people are not corrupted by black elites bankers !!!

  8. Leicester: 3 more cases than usual

    The biased media: Cases surge, locked down, city could be nuked

  9. This is why marriages between brother & sister were banned. Fuckin right proper asshole are born

  10. FIRE UP THEM TOWERS OF 800GHZ AND BEHOLD… MILITARY GRADE MILLIMETRE WAVE FORMS THAT STARVE YOUR BODIES RED BLOOD CELLS OF OXYGEN OH BLAME IT ON A MILD FORM OF FLU… ITS GETTING PATHETIC NOW. 77TH BRIGADE GET A GRIP.

  11. Clearly they want more riots and more upheaval…what are they thinking economic crash will be bringing….
