Stricter lockdown rules in England ahead of Eid

London, July 31

Millions of households in north England, including those in Manchester, Bradford and Leicester cities, face stricter lockdown rules than the rest of the UK from Friday amid a feared spike and second wave of Covid-19 cases.

The rules include a ban on households from mingling together indoors and comes just ahead of the Eid festival, which usually involves different households getting together. — PTI
