UK's Hancock announces regional COVID-19 restrictions

United Kingdom Health Secretary Matt Hancock (pictured) announced on Monday new lockdown measures for north-east England.

"Unfortunately the number of cases continues to rise sharply," Hancock said and added that the rate of infections in the region stands at "100 cases per 100,000."

The ban won't allow any indoor gatherings and it will apply in Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and County Durham as requested by local councils.
