The Prime Minister told Andrew Marr of the BBC today (3 January) with that the current locking system could be strengthened in the coming weeks

“What we are doing now is the tiering system, which is a very tough system and unfortunately it will likely become more difficult to keep things under control, “he said

“And we have the prospect of tens of millions of dollars in vaccines hit the market,” he said

“And that I think is something that should keep people going on your October show in what I was predicting It’s going to be a very bumpy time right now

The Prime Minister’s comments come as more than three quarters of the English population live under the toughest Tier 4 restrictions

Speaking at the Andrew Marr Show today was Professor Sir Mark Walport, Member of the Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies (Sage)

When asked if Tier 4 restrictions are enough, the former science advisor to the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show said, “It’s the Tier 4 restrictions, they obey them”

“These are the things that are absolutely necessary, and it’s pretty clear that we’re going to need more”
