Millions of Britons are facing tougher local restrictions on Friday, with Wales even entering new lockdown, to stem the second wave of the new coronavirus in the UK, which is tackling the issue in dispersed order.

Widely approved by the population as a whole, this hardening caused tensions and resistance, especially in the north of England, a particularly affected region which traditionally felt neglected by London.

I am 83 years old and I do not care "}}" lang = "fr”>This is all ridiculous. I'm 83 and I don't care, testified to the BBC a retiree from the region, in an intervention that has gone viral on social networks.

I don't have many years to live anymore and I won't spend them locked up in my house while the government is doing anything! Do you know who's going to pay for all of this? Maureen Eames continued. All the kids. Not me, because I'm going to die.

Confined in one block on March 23 during the first wave, the country most bereaved in Europe by the pandemic (more than 44,000 dead) reacts to the resurgence of contamination in a localized manner, local governments being competent in the matter.

From 6 p.m. local time, Wales' more than 3 million people will have to stay at home until November 9, becoming the first British province to resolve to containment.

All non-essential businesses will have to close, but children in primary and some secondary school classes will be able to return to school in early November after the school holidays.

In England, the government of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is seeking to avoid general lockdown, but now about half of the population, some 29 million people, live under local restrictions at one level or another.

In the north-west of England, the city of Manchester rose to maximum health alert level on Friday morning, after several days of unsuccessful showdown between the government and local communities over the economic counterparts.

Its 2.8 million inhabitants can no longer meet between different homes, with very rare exceptions, and bars and pubs that do not serve food have closed, the city being now classified by the authorities at the level very high, the last echelon of an alert system which has three.

The South Yorkshire region will suffer the same fate overnight from Friday to Saturday, bringing the number of Britons under the highest restrictions to 7.3 million.

In Scotland, Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced on Friday a warning system similar to that of her English neighbors, which has five levels: from level 0 – closest to normal, where visits are allowed without restriction between households – on level 4, where all non-essential businesses will have to close. The levels will be reassessed every week, she said.

On Thursday, one of the health officials warned that the Scots must already prepare for the possibility of a Digital christmas.

Asked about the BBC, Jason Leitch said he was honestly too early to tell how many households would be allowed to gather for the holidays, but that by no means would it be a Normal christmas.

In mid-October, Northern Ireland closed pubs and restaurants for a month and decided to extend the school holidays.
