The government announcement comes after the number of new patients diagnosed with Covid-19 rose by 2,420 yesterday - and nearly 3,000 cases were reported on the previous two days, the highest since May.

Tough new lockdown restrictions on social gatherings across England are to be announced on Wednesday as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tries to control a resurgence of coronavirus infections.

If they refuse, they will face a 100-pound ($130) fine, that will double on each further repeat offense up to 3,200 pounds.

It will apply to all gatherings - whether indoors or outdoors, in private homes, pubs, parks and restaurants.

The government now says people must not socialize outside in a group of more than six people from different households, but the law actually puts that limit at 30 in private spaces. It ends means schools and universities can remain open. "So we are simplifyingthe rules on social contact - making them easier to understand and for the police to enforce".

There will be exceptions for people getting together for work, weddings and funerals as well as for organized sports - but parties in pubs and restaurants, and gatherings in public spaces will all be hit by the new limits. On Tuesday, ministers announced tightening of restrictions in the northern English town of Bolton. 'Just because we have come through one peak doesn't mean we can't see another one coming towards our shores'.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said contact tracing data had shown this was "partly due to socialising by people in their 20s and 30s".

Mendy's arrival will take Chelsea's summer spending close to £250m and they will look to offset such an outlay with outgoings. And the London outfit are not done yet with a goalkeeper and Declan Rice in Lampard's sights.

Here's what we know about the rules so far.

Prof Andrew Hayward, a member of the government's scientific advisory group for emergencies, said: 'Generally it is local outbreaks but there is also very worrying increases in cases, particularly over the last few days'.

No, this is only applicable to people in England. Prof Whitty tweeted: 'We have, through the extraordinary efforts of the whole population, got Covid rates right down.

He said that while the rise in infections is "much more marked" among people between the ages of 17 and 21, he was concerned about a "more general and creeping geographic trend" across the UK. "Face. Space", to emphasize the importance of hand washing, face coverings and social distancing. We all need to protect others'.

Boris Johnson is set to formally announce the change in the law after the number of daily positive COVID-19 cases in the United Kingdom rose to nearly 3,000.

Separate figures show there have now been 57,400 deaths registered in the United Kingdom where Covid-19 was mentioned on the death certificate.
