UK tier MAPPED: Leeds and Manchester in Tier 3 as cases soar – what tier is your area in?

5 mins read


Lockdown was implemented in England on November 5, but after four weeks the end is now in sight. From December 2, England will return to the three-tier traffic light system with more areas being moved into higher tiers than seen before lockdown. Express.co.uk has compiled a map to show which tier your area belongs in.

Most of England was placed in the two toughest tiers of coronavirus restrictions today.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock set out the plans in the House of Commons on Thursday.

Most areas, including London, were advised they could be in tier two with “significant numbers” in tier three – the highest level.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “We will continue to bear down hard on this virus.

“We will use tough tiering – in some ways tougher than the pre-lockdown measures and details of those tiers are on the gov.uk website later this week when we have the most up to data and we will be sharing details of which tier your area is going to be in.

“I should warn you now that many more places will be in higher tiers than alas was previously the case and we will simultaneously be using the new and exciting possibilities of community testing – as they have done in Liverpool.”

A further 18,213 lab-confirmed cases of coronavirus were also reported on Wednesday.

In total, 209,876 patients with coronavirus have been admitted to hospital, with 16,570 currently in hospital.

In the UK, a total of 56,533 people have died within 28 days of a COVID-19 positive test result and 66,713 people have died with coronavirus on the death certificate.
