LONDON, Oct 1 (Reuters) - British health minister Matt Hancock extended tighter coronavirus restrictions on Thursday across more areas in England, including the northern city of Liverpool.
Earlier this week, further restrictions were brought into northeastern England, where COVID-19 cases were rising.
“I am today extending these measures that have been in place in the northeast since the start of this week to the Liverpool city region, Warrington, Hartlepool and Middlesborough,” Hancock told parliament. (Reporting by William James and Elizabeth Piper; editing by Michael Holden)
