Britain locks down again as new coronavirus variant spreads

New lockdowns are announced for England and Scotland even as Britain begins rolling out the Oxford-AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine, a possible game-changer in fighting the disease worldwide. Following in the footsteps of the devolved Scottish administration, Prime Minister Boris Johnson says all of England, the UK's largest nation, would close down from Wednesday -- possibly into mid-February. The latest virus moves are aimed at containing a severe wave of infections with a new coronavirus strain believed to spread faster.
