This comes as a second national lockdown is expected to be announced next week.
Boris Johnson is expected to make the announcement on Monday, with the restrictions beginning on Wednesday. It is thought they could last until December 1.
The dramatic move to blanket restrictions comes after scientists from the Sage committee yesterday presented No 10 with bleak figures showing that Covid is spreading ‘significantly’ faster than even their original ‘worst-case scenario’ prediction.
The scientists – backed by Health Secretary Matt Hancock and senior minister Michael Gove – told them the virus was on track to kill 85,000 this winter, and that it was too late for a so-called ‘circuit break’ lockdown.
Schools are expected to remain open, but a source claimed to The Times that non-essential shops would shut.
