Coronavirus UK news – Strict £10,000 fine for those refusing to self-isolate as Covid infections rise

The Sun

PEOPLE in England who refuse orders to self-isolate will face fines of up to £10,000 amid surging coronavirus numbers in the UK.

In a significant toughening up of the regulations, the government has warned it is now people's legal duty to self-isolate if they test positive for the disease - or are told to do so by NHS Test and Trace.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has reportedly warned Boris Johnson the capital needs new Covid restrictions by Monday - including a 10pm curfew for pubs - to stop a surge in cases.

The news comes after Boris Johnson recently said a second wave of coronavirus in the UK is 'inevitable' - and urged Brits to stick to the 'rule of six'.

Meanwhile, Number 10 has warned an 'extended' national lockdown could be enforced if the coronavirus surge isn't stopped in its tracks.
