Nearly two million people in the north-east of England are experiencing tougher cuts in socialization after a significant increase in the number of coronavirus cases. It is still the largest closure in the region. In total, more than 9 million people in the UK are under stricter closure regulations. Recent measures, in the north-east of England, affect seven areas: Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Newcastle upon Tyne, Gateshead, Sunderland and County Durham. People are not allowed to have contact with people outside the home or have a support bubble. Along with bars and pubs, table service will only be available at restaurants that are due to close by 10pm. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the government was acting out of concern after seeing infection rates in the region. The closure, which affects nearly a quarter of a million people in South Wales, has also come into force. The people of Rhondda Cynon Taff are not allowed to do so for no good reason for a fortnight, and are forbidden to see anyone in homes outside their home.
