As published in the youtube description by Daily Mail 24h: What is the three-tier system and how will it work?  It is understood the UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, will unveil on Monday a new three-tier lockdown system for England in a fresh attempt to control the spread of the coronavirus, as cases rise and scientists warn NHS capacity will be stretched within weeks, possibly days, in some parts of the country.  Any details of the plan are based solely on leaks to the media over the last week, including a document dated 30 September that was seen by the Guardian.  The draft traffic-light-style plan is designed to simplify the current patchwork of localised restrictions, which apply to about a quarter of the UK.  Here we take a look at what could be in store for the country ahead of confirmation of the details on Monday. How will a region’s tier be determined?  The tier system will reportedly be determined by the rate of infection, although the rate of increase could be an important factor, as well as total number of cases.  Various reports suggest the infection rate for tier 1, which would have the least restrictions, could be less than 100 cases per 100,000 people of the population.

Places with fewer than 100 cases per 100,000 in that period included the City of Bristol (97), Cambridgeshire (51) Cornwall and Isles of Scilly (27). What could the tiers mean for social contact?  In tier 1, residents could expect restrictions to mirror the current national measures in place including the rule of six, that is, no more than six people permitted to gather together indoors or outdoors.  In this tier, wedding and civil partnership ceremonies and services could have up to 15 attendees, while funerals are likely to be able to have 30 attendees only.  Organised sport would only be allowed outdoors.  In tier 2, the restrictions step up. This would likely see an end to households being able to mix indoors in private dwellings, including gardens, unless you have formed a support bubble under established guidelines.  A ban on mixing households would be extended to hospitality, leisure and retail settings.  It is also likely that under tier 2, people will be advised only to visit care homes in exceptional circumstances. However, people could be permitted to holiday outside of their area but only with the people they live with or have formed a support bubble with.  Weddings may be permitted to have 15 attendees but receptions may be banned, while funerals could have their atten
