eicester is facing a two-week lockdown extension after it recorded 866 new cases of coronavirus in the last 14 days, with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying that it is vital to be ready to crack down on local flare-ups.

Speaking during a visit to a construction site in west London, Mr Johnson said: "We are concerned about Leicester, we are concerned about any local outbreak.

"I want to stress to people that we are not out of the woods yet. We are making these cautious, calibrated steps, we are opening as much of hospitality as we can on July 4, opening as much of the economy as we can - some things, alas, still remain closed until they can become Covid-secure.

"But to make all that possible we have to remain vigilant."

He said the local "whack-a-mole" strategy had worked in Weston-super-Mare and where there had been outbreaks around GP surgeries in London.

"That's the same approach that we will bring to bear in Leicester as well."

He was speaking after Leicester's mayor Peter Soulsby said he was "angry and frustrated" that a meeting with government officials scheduled for this morning had been cancelled.

Mr Soulsby said a document sent to him by the government at around 1am had "very little substance" and only suggested that restrictions due to be lifted for the rest of the country on 4 July should remain in place for Leicester for an extra two weeks.

what they are not reporting is that A: Testing is up, and B: mortality is way down. Covid is burning itself out and not nearly as deadly as it was. Same thing happened with Sars .
