A professor who has advised the British government on its COVID-19 testing programme said on Saturday a short nationwide lockdown was needed due to "eye-watering" levels of infection in parts of England. As a second wave of infections gathers pace, Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government has favoured local restrictions in areas where cases are surging - hoping to shield the economy by allowing the least-affected regions to remain open. Johnson reiterated on Friday his belief in a localised approach rather than a new, temporary national lockdown, even as half of the United Kingdom's people live in places subject to enhanced COVID-19 restrictions..

Britain's biggest teachers' union has backed a "circuit-breaker" lockdown and called for secondary schools and colleges to be closed for an extended two-week half-term. The intervention by the National Education Union (NEU) comes amid sustained pressure on Boris Johnson from Labour, Government scientific advisers and the NHS for the reintroduction of draconian nationwide restrictions. Speaking at a press conference on Friday, the Prime Minister said he wanted to avoid such measures, but "cannot rule anything out". Earlier in the pandemic, the NEU came under fire for resisting attempts to get children back into classrooms before the summer holidays despite the devastating effect of school closures on pupils' learning. Although coronavirus poses almost no risk to children, schools were closed from March 20 and most only reopened in September.
